Summary: While we are not saying you will fail the bar exam, we don’t want you to give up if you end up failing. Take a look at all of these people who failed at least once and still became successful later on.
 
Even Hillary Clinton failed the bar on her first attempt, and so did these other famous people.

A lot of people never make it in the legal industry. In fact, a whopping 21 percent fail the bar the first time they take it. They spend three or more years sacrificing their personal life to study law books. Then they graduate from law school only to be stopped by the bar exam. It doesn’t matter where you go to law school either. Yale has a 5.5 percent fail rate, Berkeley has a fail rate more than double that at 12.5 percent, and Georgetown has a 10 percent fail rate.

Here are several other famous people that failed the bar exam the first go-around. This list goes to show that if you fail the bar exam the first time you attempt it you should not be discouraged:
