These “I passed the bar” posts on LinkedIn are getting a little ridiculous. Just saw a someone’s post about how they can now practice in any UBE jurisdiction. This person went to a top undergrad, HYS for law school, and works at a V5. It’s not that impressive to pass the bar, especially from those law schools which probably have a 99% pass rate. Bragging for bragging’s sake is tacky.

Starting accutane and petrified of having nose bleeds in any work or interview situations. Any tips on preventing these?
Hey all. I was a career pivot. It’s hard, one o free hardest things you’ll ever do. But you can do it.
It’s ok to get discouraged, and even give up for a bit; but just remember to pick yourself back up at some point.
