UPDATE: THE RESULTS ARE OUT! You can read more about the July 2016 results here.
We are already counting down the days until July 2016 New York bar exam results are released. New York bar exam results are usually released around the last week of October or first week of November. (Our formal prediction for the July 2016 New York bar exam results is Wednesday, November 9. But it could really be anytime at the end of October or beginning of November!)
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 Tuesday and Thursday.) Like many state boards, they tend to avoid releasing results on Mondays.
It is true that there are less bar exam takers in New York this administration. However, since New York has just switched to the Uniform Bar Exam (and will have to get used to grading the MEE’s and two MPTs!) we think it will take them a little longer than normal to get results back to students! We could be completely wrong — that is just our educated guess!
You can judge for yourself when you think July 2016 New York bar exam results will be released. Here are the last seven results dates for the New York bar exam, including the day of the week they have been released:

I’m Worried I Failed! Can I Reserve a Spot for Tutoring?
Yes, you can. We have top-notch UBE tutors (who have passed the New York bar exam!) and have helped several students pass the UBE. Our spots fill up quickly so we truly recommend early application so that we can reserve your spot if need be! To read more about our New York Bar Exam tutoring click here.
You should also check out our myriad additional resources, including our MEE one-sheets (for sale in our online store), an MEE seminar and our MEE course. We limit the number of students for private tutoring and that can attend our seminar and 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 New York Bar Exam seminar end up not needing it (even though they are convinced they failed!).Why is this? It is because feelings do not correlate with results! This is is why — even if you are absolutely convinced you failed — you may have indeed passed! Please see this post about how to deal with worrying about bar exam results before they are released! You are also welcome to call us (929-260-4971) or email us if you find you cannot stop worrying!
