Welcome back! Today we're talking about a difficult reality – what happens when you don’t pass the bar exam. Ariel Salzer, one of our bar exam tutors, is here with Lee to share some advice.

If you got disappointing bar exam news, we have helpful tips in this podcast to help you regroup and get ready to pass next time. If you're in law school now, you can also find some useful information on how to be as prepared as possible so, hopefully, you only have to take the bar exam once. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • What should you do when you get bad news?
  • Does anyone really care if you failed (other than you)?
  • How to analyze what went wrong
  • Strategies for self-reflection
  • Why it's important to feel bad and take some time and space to be upset
  • Creating your bar prep mission statement
  • How to make sure you aren't setting yourself up for the same mistakes on your next attempt
  • How to hold yourself accountable during the bar study period
  • Avoiding self-sabotage
  • How to tell people you failed
  • Do you need accommodations and how to seek them?
  • Should you take the next bar exam or wait?
  • How to take a more active role in the correction, review, and rewrite process
