My cousin's taking two: NY and NJ.  You'll both be in my prayers.

Your cousin must be a glutton for punishment.  One is more than enough for me.

Prayers for passing your tests.

You've got it, Jennifer.  I took the bar in Michigan and, five years later, in California.  I'm a glutton for punishment I guess.  Seriously, if you studied for it, you'll pass.

Congrats,

Now to decide where you will use your skills.

Do not let the $ totally make your decision, I rather make less $ & enjoy my work.

Big Congrats!
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

When you owe as much in student loans as I do you can't help but let $ be the primary reason for your decision.

Jennifer--

I agree. My wife intends to work for a year or two at the place with the highest income first, then switch if able to something more pleasing.  She will be graduating law school in May, and taking the bar sometime thereafter.

The Law Firm that was handling my wifes' case cannot retain enough attorneys due to case loads & the stress from the expectations to produce.

When her attorney left she fired the Firm & retained the original attorney.

Production goals no matter the job are a pain in the axx.

Believe me, 30 years in Public Works, the last 12 years supervising the maintenance of all Storm Drains in the City Of Los Angeles.

Arghhh..................

Jennifer --

Congratulations on the bar!  

Hehe, I was one of the unlucky ones, such that when I repatriated myself to the USA it was to a different state than the one I had been admitted in, and I was between the cracks of "new admittee" (where I could have waived in) and "long-time admittee" (where I could have waived in), and so I had to take the bar exam AGAIN!  Ack!  

It was easier the second time.

Congratulations and good luck with practice.
