Boos - I remember "conditioning" (which is a nice way of saying you failed, but almost passed - ) - and I was pretty bitter about it. Because of the conditioning process, however, it WAS in fact, much better to condition than "outright" fail, because it cut the the number of sections from 9 down to 3 (in my case).

Good for you boosie. I've done the same. As I said in an earlier post in this thread, I didn't pass the entire Virginia exam the first time out. While it slowed my admission some, it never affected my practice or the honors I have been fortunate enough to have received over the years.

I'm wondering in five to ten years, how the Louisiana legal job field will be. A local judge (who I assume has his facts straight) told me 50% of La's lawyers are 60 years old+. Is this true? That, along with the more difficult bar could make Louisiana ripe for the legal profession.
I also found this post interesting. Says Louisiana has only had a 13% increase in lawyers in the past 10 years while Alabama has had a whopping 47% increase in the number. Why so many for Alabama?
