IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT I GOT GAME

Short version:
I passed.

*does the Cabbage Patch*

Long version:
As I click onto the NY Bar Examiners' website, my heart does a little double pump. I enter my information: SS# and date of birth. I click "Ok"...AND AN ERROR MESSAGE POPS UP.

My body stops functioning.

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGDIDIFAILOMG???

Calm down, calm down, breathe.
*clicks Back button on browser*
*squints*
OH.
Date of birth is month and YEAR, not month and DAY.

Okay...I get ready to click "Ok" for the second time.

And here we go!

Wait. Wait! WAIT! It's a paragraph! No "odderie: Passed" or "Congratulations! We are pleased..." WTF! A paragraph! What does it say I can't read it what does it say I can't read I can't read I can't read!!!! OMG!!!!!

Then I catch what looks like the beginnings of a word "...congratul..." And I start to breathe again. And my eyes start to focus.

"The State Board of Law Examiners congratulates you on passing the New York State bar examination held on July 25-26, 2006."

Thank you. Thank you very much.
