Will the February 2023 Michigan Bar Exam results be posted online?
Yes, the Michigan Board of Law Examiners states on their website that results will be posted by seat number on the day that results are mailed. Note: this is the seat you actually were sitting in, which may be different than the seat you originally were assigned.
In case you are wondering where they reveal that results are released, they make an announcement right here on the home page of their website.
If you do not remember your seat number, you may have to wait for your results to be mailed. Last year, they did not release this information to applicants who did not write down their seat number.
What time of day are the Michigan Bar Exam results posted online?
Anywhere between 12:00 p.m. ET and 4:40 p.m. ET is normal. They have not posted results before 12:00 p.m. ET as far as we are aware! They have tended to post them later in the day (3:30 p.m. ET and onward) especially recently.
Will I be able to find my February 2023 Michigan Bar Exam results by my seat number if I don’t have Character and Fitness clearance?
Most likely. For the last eight bar exams, the Michigan Board of Law Examiners (BLE) released the seat numbers of everyone who passed the Michigan Bar Exam, including those who had not yet passed the MPRE or Character and Fitness. If they do the same thing this time, you will be able to find out whether you passed as soon as results are posted, regardless of whether you still are waiting for Character and Fitness clearance.
I’m worried I failed! Can I reserve a spot for tutoring or a course?

This course is highly regarded. We also have an On Demand UBE Course which is popular! You can read more about our courses here as well as see outline samples!

A few notes if you choose to reserve your spot for any of the above:
- First, you are not required to use the spot if you temporarily reserve the spot. It will merely be held for you until results are released. (Note: if you hold a spot for our On Demand Uniform Bar Exam Course, we will preserve any current discounts for you even if it has expired by the time you get results.)
- Our full-service, premium Uniform Bar Exam Course spots fill up very quickly! We highly recommend an early reservation if you are worried you failed and are truly interested in this option.
- Just because you reserve a spot (as your plan B!) does not mean you will jinx yourself! In fact, most of our students who reserve a with us end up not needing it (even though they are convinced they failed!). Why is this? It is because feelings do not correlate with results! This is why—even if you are absolutely convinced you failed—you may have indeed passed! Please see this post about how to deal with worrying about bar exam results before they are released! You are also welcome to contact us here if you find you cannot stop worrying!
