The article, “UBE Debuts in Washington” [OCT 2013 NWLawyer], brought
back memories of taking the Oregon
Bar exam in 1980 (then called the
multi-state exam). There were 200
questions, 100 in the morning and 100

would be close. At the break I decided
there was no reason to return for the
afternoon session, since I was sure I
answered eight correctly. Only by having lunch with other equally depressed
classmates, and learning that we answered the same on several questions
did I decide to return. We all passed.

1982 and found it much more reasonable, since I did not have to “guess”
on many of the questions. My biggest
fear was that they could not read my

please keep them coming!
