Breaking news in my inbox today:
"The New York State Board of Law Examiners congratulates you on passing the New York State bar examination held on July 28-29, 2009. An official certification notice will be emailed to the email address currently on file with the Board. The email will include an attachment with your official bar exam results, which will be in Adobe pdf. A copy of the Notice of Certification must be filed with the Appellate Division as part of your application for admission."
This is not only vindication after 3 years of torture, but also proof that torn sweatpants, Teva sandals and Hanes undershirts do not make one more apt to pass the bar than a cute, cotton blend dress and coordinating gladiator sandals. It is possible to be stylish and successful. A law license is certainly a timeless new accessory, it goes with everything in my closet.
