What's the hardest part about taking the Bar Exam? For students across the nation last night, the answer may have been turning it in.

A large number of bar candidates took their test using ExamSoftand were told to upload their exams when they got home. What happened when users tried to upload appears to be a meltdown - people across the country were unable to get their files onto the site.

ExamSoft issues this message, which extends deadlines for uploading files in the states where the software was used. Ohio, Illinois and Michigan are among the states listed. 

With sites like Above the Law questioning if this is "the biggest bar exam disaster ever?", it's certainly not going over well with students. Check out this post from Above the Law that rounds up messages from people across the nation who stayed up late into the night of the exam's first day struggling to upload their files.
