ny bar exam with minimal studying?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Apr 05, 2013 11:14 am

I passed a bar exam in another state last July. Working now in New York and want to take the New York bar in July (I don't need to, so there's no pressure, but it would be nice). Only problem is I don't get out of work until 8 most nights. Wondering if study on the weekends and some study for about 1-2 hrs a weeknight might be enough to pull through? Or is this totally crazy thinking?

I'm doing this right now. I started in March. I know several people who've done it as well. It's totally doable. My commute is an hour each way on the train so I just study then and it doesn't really take over my schedule. Reviewing this stuff for the second time around (third time if you count law school classes) is much easier.

How high is your MBE score, and will it transfer?

I imagine it would be fine either way if you've already taken another jurisdiction, but it would be made even easier if you have a high MBE score that will compensate for any weakness on the NY section.
