It was up from midnight (central time) until about 12:10, and it continues to be down. Although the problems are inevitably the result of people rushing the site, they should know such a scenario is likely. Perhaps they think an upgrade is not worth it for two times a year.

I passed!!!!!!!!!!!!! And to make the evening most interesing, I had my number memorized wrong and the number I thought it was did not pass (my heart dropped...sorry to those who did not pass, in all sincerity). But then I looked it up on my computer via my "Sent Email" folder that had my essay uploads for the exam with my exam number and it turns out I had two numbers flipped. My REAL number passed!!!! Wooohoooo!!

Now all I have to do is make sure I got a high enough score on the MBE to transfer into D.C. My luck, I probably didn't, especially considering I managed to pass the bar (only one good thing can happen to me in each calendar year).

doesn't Illinois combine scores??? If so, I could have excelled on the essay portion while scoring poorly on the MBE, which may have been enough to pass overall but not enough for an MBE transfer into D.C. Right?

If you got less than a 133, you would have needed to score in the 90th percentile or better to still pass. How likely is that?

Thanks for the response. I didn't know how all the numbers worked. I suppose the more important question would be not whether scoring in the 90th percentile is likely (because 10 percent are going to do that, so why not me) but how likely it would be for someone to score in the 90th percentile on the essay while still failing the MBE. I would imagine that is a rare combination, but I am still crossing my fingers that I am not "rare" ;-)

I thought the essays were rather easy also and definitely redundant. They had me thinking that I was missing something.

I did a rough estimate based on the numbers listed on the website. The registration numbers appear to go roughly from 10000 to 13000, which means there were approximately 3000 applicants. The number of passes listed is approximately 2200 (204 per column multiplied by 11 columns). Therefore, a rough passage rate would be 73% (2200/3000).

I did the numbers and got 80%...

By my count there are 2444 numbers listed and the numbers run from 10002 to 13039.

Of course, there are a few no-shows or kicked-outs in there...

From what I've heard it just says you passed.

My question would be: How do you know if your MBE is high enough to transfer to another state?

You have to call and specifically request it. I know this cause a friend had to do it for DC and found out she bombed the MBE....badly. I guess its probably better they just tell me "Passed"

(http://www.autoadmit.com/thread.php?thread_id=694451&forum_id=2#8717228)

Author: Assistant (to the) Regional Manager

You just go to www.ncebx.org and submit a request for a score transfer. However, if you are going to Minnessota (lulz) or D.C. (like me), because those states do the score transfer request themselves through the bar application an applicant submits, instead you can request a "score advisory" report.

I submitted mine yesterday but it said Illinois won't release results for score advisories or transfers until October 15, so I won't know whether I scored high enough on my MBE for D.C. for another three weeks or so. My girlfriend did it last year and it is just a letter saying that your MBE score was either sufficient or insufficient for transfering to your chosen jurisdiction. That way you know your status before actually filling out the new bar application.

Subject: What does the actual letter tell you

I am waiting for my letter and I was wondering if anyone has received their letter confirming that they passed and what it actually states. Does it say congratulations or this is to notify you that you passed. Is it a long letter or simple letter. Does it come in a white envelope or yellow. As you can tell I am very nervous and would like to hear from people who have passed to kill time while i wait for the mailman. Thanks.

I received my letter confirming passage almost two weeks ago (the letter doesn't give any actual results, only that I passed and that I passed C&F). In fact, I have already received my packet from the Illinois Supreme Court for swearing in. The ceremony is on Thursday, November 8. If you haven't received word via mail one way or the other, you should definitely call (did the website say you passed??).

Subject: what the letter actually says

I received my pass letter on Oct.3rd or 4th.

It says, "We are pleased to advise you that you have passed the July 2007 Illinois Bar Examination."

I received a seperate letter on Oct. 18 that says, "We are pleased to advise you that your application has been recommended for certification by the Committee on Character and Fitness."

And thankfully, my mbe met or exceeded the requirements to waive into DC. That too was a seperate letter from the National Conference of Bar Examiners.

Both arrived in plain white envelopes.

If you have not received it by now, I would call the Board of Examiners. Maybe they have the incorrect address for you.

The results have been online for over a month now, but they don't list names, only numbers. You won't be able to check your friend's results unless you know his number. So far as I know, IL doesn't release names at all.

Anyway, so no one has any idea how long this shindig is likely to go on?

Eventually you'll be able to check on iardc.org in the lawyer search, but I think that won't be until after you pass C&F and are sworn in, I'm pretty sure. Also, the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin publishes the names of everyone sworn in but again that takes a few weeks or months after the actual ceremony.
