Bar exam results.
Tens of thousands across the country face them time and time again. Hope and despair, rinse and repeat.
You endured the onslaught of “aww… you got this” and “I’m sure you passed!” for weeks and months.
Anxiety, excitement, uncertainty squirting into your heart every time you thought of the moment of truth. Waiting is the hardest part. Uncertainty is being locked in a padded room alone with delusions of hopes and worries.
Then… the ruthless truth. This is the result of all your work, condensed into one screen. It has declared that your efforts were not enough.
Maybe for the first time, a humbling moment. Maybe not your first time, even more painful.
How do you face your family and friends? How do you face yourself?
You “trusted the system.” What needs to be changed?
