Texas Supreme Court Justice Tweets Out 72-Page Pass List After Texas Bar Website Crash Prevents Bar Takers From Getting Their Results

Texas Lawyer, Want to Know Who Passed the July 2019 Texas Bar Examination?:

Texas BarTexas Supreme Court Justice Brett Busby provided a link via Twitter on Friday to the results of the July 2019 Texas Bar Examination.

The Texas Board of Law Examiners, which normally posts the pass list, had website issues Thursday and Friday, preventing some test-takers from seeing their scores.

Above the Law, Massive Bar Exam Screw-Up Leaves Law School Graduates In Panic; Did You Pass the Bar Exam? Good Luck Trying to Find Out.:

Imagine this: The bar exam results are supposed to be released on a specific day, and after waiting for months to see if you passed, on that day, you receive an email from the Board of Law examiners letting you know that “important information” has been posted to your account. This is the moment you’ve been waiting for.

Did you pass? Did you pass?! DID YOU PASS?!?!?!?!

You try to log in to your account, but you can’t. The page is down. You try reloading the page… but nothing happens. This happens again, and again, and again, and again, and again. After hours of trying to find out if passed the bar exam, you finally get the page to load, but the login option has been completely removed.

This is exactly what happened to recent law school graduates in Texas, beginning sometime yesterday afternoon. THIS IS A BIG PROBLEM, Y’ALL. ...

This is completely unacceptable. The way this was handled was atrocious, and we hope that this will inspire some server upgrades. No one should ever have to go through something like this when their futures are on the line.

Update:  July 2019 Texas Bar Exam Results: Baylor #1 (For 3rd Year In A Row)

Oh, how I remember those days. Virginia sent out postcards with your results. That was my first bar exam (1960). I think Texas also gave results by mail when I took the bar exam in 1961. Sweated out both.
