Yup.  After studying [clerkship state]'s law for 3 mos, I almost regretted not taking [home state]'s bar exam so maybe I could be of some use to family and friends back home.  But then (a) I saw that [home state] has one of those torturous 3 day bars and requires all sorts of affidavits and references and such, and (b) I went home for a week and got way too many questions from people in various states of legal entanglement (surprising the dirt you can learn once you (almost) become a lawyer)...and happily told them that they should consult a [home state] lawyer.

It's always amazing to discover the sh!t people get into.  Of course, it's less amazing when they want you to help them, I dunno, sue their neighbor's dog, or whatever.

Oh just wait until you pass the bar in a few months.  That's when the phone calls really begin!
