Dealing With This, Parts 1 Through 7

[Deleted posts: This post and six more following after it originally dealt with the lead-up and aftermath of my being denied a law license by the Arizona State Bar. My perspective on these events has changed somewhat as time has progressed since then. I have left this post title and marker in place to show that I am not evading the reality of what happened, but I think that the substance of the posts is no longer productive.]

Arizona Bar Exam February 2007

Dear Mr. Bahr,

There were a total of 377 applicants to the February 2007 Arizona bar examination with scores ranging from a low of 226.1 to a high of 501.6. The minimum passing score is 410 out of a total 600 possible points.


Total essay points (out of 72 possible) of 41 x 1.5
Converted to scaled score x 2 of 284.6
Plus MBE score of 129.2 = Total combined score of 413.8

Congratulations! You have achieved a passing score on the examination. However, you are not presently eligible for admission to the practice of law in Arizona because your character report is being reviewed by the Committee. The Committee on Character and Fitness will advise you, in writing, as soon as you are eligible for admission to the practice of law in Arizona.

(If you are one of those who got a questionnaire from the Supreme Court about me, please, pretty please, tell them I'm not a dirtbag. I thank you.)

Cinco de Mayo, here I come.
