When Will the February 2020 New York Bar Exam Results Be Released?

February 2020 New York Bar Exam results should be released around the end of April or beginning of May. (Our formal prediction is Tuesday, April 28, but it really could be anytime at the end of April or beginning of May!)

When will February 2020 New York Bar Exam results be released?

Note that the New York State Board of Law Examiners seems to like releasing results on Tuesday through Friday most of the time (when releasing July results, they seem to like Wednesdays and Fridays, and when releasing February results, they seem to like Tuesdays). Like many state boards, they tend to avoid releasing results on Mondays, though in July 2017, they released results on a Monday afternoon.

You can judge for yourself when you think New York will release the February 2020 bar exam results. The following are the last 10 dates that the February results were released for the New York Bar Exam, including the day of the week:

I think I failed the New York Bar Exam! Can I reserve a spot for tutoring?

UBE course, fail the UBE, failed the Uniform Bar Exam, fail the Uniform Bar ExamYes. We have multiple options for top-notch UBE tutors (who have passed the New York Bar Exam!) and have helped many students pass the UBE. Our spots fill up quickly, so we truly recommend submitting an application early to reserve your spot! To read more about our New York Bar Exam tutoring click here.

The best deal that we offer is our highly regarded, small group Uniform Bar Exam Course. It also fills up the very quickly, as we have very limited spots. So, we highly recommend submitting an early application or reservation. It is tailored to exactly what is tested on the Uniform Bar Exam. Note: you are not required to use the spot if you temporarily reserve it.

You also should check out our myriad of additional resources, including our MEE One-Sheets (for sale in our online store), a New York Bar Exam Seminar (which covered a lot of what was tested on the last bar exam!) and our New York MEE Course. We limit the number of students for private tutoring, the Seminar, and the Course.

Note: just because you reserve a spot (as your plan B!)  does not mean you will jinx yourself! In fact, most of our students who reserve a spot for private tutoring or our other services end up not needing them (even though they are convinced they failed!). Why is that? It is because feelings do not correlate with results! This is is why—even if you absolutely are convinced you failed—you may indeed have passed! Please see this post about how to deal with worrying about bar exam results before they are released!  You also are welcome to contact us if you find you cannot stop worrying!
