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!)

Note that the Washington D.C. seems to like releasing results on Thursday most of the time. Washington D.C. tends to release results in mid-to-late October. 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. The switch to the Uniform Bar Exam also lead to significantly more applicants, which could delay the release of results even further.

You can judge for yourself when you think July 2016 Washington DC bar exam results will be released. The last six results dates for the Washington D.C. bar exam are posted below. This includes the day of the week they have been released:

*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!
