November 1: Update: Washington DC Results are Out! See Washington DC’s press release and pass list here! Washington DC bar exam results are usually released around mid-to-late October. (Our formal prediction for the July 2016 Washington DC bar exam results is Thursday, October 27, but it could really be anytime at the end of October or beginning of November!)

Since Washington D.C. has just switched to the Uniform Bar Exam, we think it may take a little longer for them to release results.
