I knew I had to take the exam. Otherwise I’d have to wait until next July because I have to take the Georgia bar in February. Deferring was not an option. I set up a trash can next to me and I would just puke in between questions. It was one of the toughest things I’ve gone through in my life.
— Johnny Carver, a recent graduate of the University of Miami School of Law, commenting on his experience taking the remote Florida bar exam. The day before the test, Carver was so sick that he had to go to the emergency room, where he tested negative for COVID-19 and the flu. This test experience is almost as bad as that of the fellow who had to sit in his own urine while taking the exam or the woman who had to take the exam while she was in labor.
