No, not like a pub or alcohol realted bar, but the bar that actually may determine whether or not my entire law school experience will become obsolete... I started filling out my bar application for the MD bar in February. It is kind of an exciting idea but then you get into the actual application and you want to poke your eye out.
A lot of it is my own fault. I have such a fun "colorful" past that it is taking forever! I have to list all the places I have lived in the last 10 years--well I was a bit of a nomad and so there are a lot. And they want specific dates--I really have no clue what specific day I moved into my apartment in VA 5 years ago. I only lived there for 3 months and I still have to put it! Seriously--maybe some people keep really good records of where they were and when, but I did not!
Plus they want all my academic information starting with high school. That's fine but I went to three high schools and three undergrad institutions before going to law school. I don't remember the exact date I went to BYU summer term in freaking 1998. Seriously. This application is going to be the death of me. After this application the Bar exam iteself is going to feel easy.
On a more positive note--I lived a lot of cool places, met a lot of awesome people in all my travels and wouldn't change one bit of my adventures just to make the application process easier.
I cannot believe it is actually time to do this! AHHH! Good luck to any and everyone who has to go through this horrid process!
