Even if she did not study hard, she's Stanford's dean, she has already taken two states bar exams and you just can not attribute her failure to her lack of preparation. Does the definition of "assault," "battery," "specific performance" and the like change over time, or from state to state?! Does California have a much different definition of "principal in the second degree" compared to New York?! Not really!


Do you know that Hillary Clinton did not pass the District of Columbia bar exam on her first attempt? In fact, it was because she passed the Arkansas bar exam, but not the DC one, that she chose to follow her heart instead of her mind, going with Bill Clinton to Arkansas, rather than staying in Washington where her career prospects were best. During 1974 she was a member of the impeachment inquiry staff in Washington, D.C., advising the House Committee on the Judiciary during the Watergate scandal, which culminated in the resignation of Nixon in August 1974; by then, she was viewed as someone with a bright political future -- Democratic political organizer and consultant Betsey Wright had moved from Texas to Washington the previous year to help guide her career thinking she had the potential to one day become a Senator or President

You seem to believe that Clinton is smarter than Sullivan. Well, that certainly does not have to be the case. Clinton may be politically-savvy, but that does not necessarily mean she's better "brains" than Sullivan.
Think of all the fun I've missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be just as good
If you'd check off my Christmas list
Boo doo bee doo

Well, as far as a politician is concerned, that's what it really matters -- being socially active, having people skills -- you don't have to an intellectual genius to get into, and be successful, in politics.

May it not be that she subconsciously wanted to fail the DC bar exam so that she'd have a justification to go to Arkansas?! Just a suggestion..

Also the bar exam likes a certain style of writing, many short paragraphs with the point being right out there rather than in the middle of a paragraph.


Are the essays scored by a computer or by a real person?


Real people.

Even if they wanted to create some kind of computer program to score the essays, they'd not dare to use it.
