Nothing so far, but I am barely in my 30s, I guess it takes a while for perfection to wear off.

Alaska doesn't really have a bar exam, you just have to see Russia from your house.

And yes, from what I am hearing the patbar is pretty difficult.

The first incident happened at the end of my first year of college (2003).  After getting into an argument with my significant other, I consumed several bottles of beer and became intoxicated (under age, obviously) in my dorm room.  After getting drunk I wandered across campus to visit a friend in the hopes of crying on a shoulder.  My friend was concerned for my safety and notified her RA of my inebriation; the RA escorted me back to my dorm room and that was the end of it.

Count One: Drunk on a college campus.

After my girlfriend casually mentioned over AIM that she was cheating on me - with another girl - I became seriously upset, and (understandably) I decided to end the relationship with her.

There is nothing understandable about this. A normal, heterosexual man would get down on his knees and thank the Lord. You, Sir, are an idiot for breaking up with this woman.

A few weeks later I was summoned to see the Dean of Students, who claimed that the e-mail, in conjunction with some other pieces of evidence, constituted sexual harassment.  As a result I was issued an "Active Avoidance Order" to stay away from the girl in question, which I complied with fully.  I was not issued any probation, suspension or any other disciplinary action, nor was I asked to leave the school.

Count Two: Went emo over a chick

To sum this up, if you think these two things are relevant to a bar association, you're a nitwit. First of all, you are not required to disclose anything more than they specifically ask for. I have never seen anyone being asked to disclose information like this. The very lowest level of "offense" I have heard any bar association request is an arrest.

Seriously, you do understand that there are former drug traffickers and people with manslaughter convictions that get approved to the bar right?

Fake edit: Googling Mr. Soreide's phone number turned up some rather amusing results.

I was being a smartass, I obviously understood that you were talking about the patbar, although equaling that to a "real" bar exam seems a bit halfwitted.

So, you're doing a dual JD for shits and giggles?

The market is either going to be back up in 3 years, or we're going to be assimilated into China.

Each to their own I guess.
