    Soooooo, if I were to address you formally on a written envelope, would I address it to Ms. Bellalou, Esq?

    Happy for you! Not an easy job! Not just anyone passes on the first try! Good job!

    Thank you all! This has been such an amazing journey. Ten years ago, I was a high school dropout working in a grocery store. I now have 3 degrees and have passed one of the 2 hardest bar exams in the country. It all seems quite surreal. But it's also a reminder that it's never too late to pursue your passions.

    Esq. works nicely, thanks. :p I am thrilled! The pass rate statewide was just 45%! :eek:

    Criminal defense. I'd love to get a public defender job. I interned with the county public defender office for 2 1/2 years during law school and loved it.
