The California law school deans are asking that the new bar exam score (1390 instead of 1440) be applied retroactively at least to Feb 2020 (which they should) but are also asking to go back to July 2017.

Even if they do it, my swearing in date will still be June 2018 instead of Dec 2017, I still lost 6 months of my career even if retroactively I passed the first time.
