So our chance of survival on the bar is 32.33%, repeating of course? Crap.

I decided as part of a 15 minute study break today (MA takes the bar on Wed and Thurs) that I would figure out my percentage on all MBE practice questions I have taken while studying for the bar (going back to June 1). I am only sitting at 62% overall, but my percentage over the past three weeks is much higher (approx 71%). If I really wanted to kill some time I'd make a graph charting my progress but I think my time could be used a bit better.
Relevant information
1509 questions total
100 from NCBEX
1409 from Barbri (between MPQ1, MPQ2, SFE, PRE100q test, and the Mid Term Test)

935/1509 = 62%

I still plan on doing some more MBE practice questions today and tomorrow (as I said MA bar starts with MBE on Wed) but I will mostly focus on the Essays as I have done most of this week.

Good luck to everyone out there!

cant focus anymore - my brain is blocking off any new information/further review of my outlines. annoying but generally a good sign.

Damn. That was brutal. reactionarily difficult test after a too easy one last year? Check. Testing on UCC articles last tested in 1995? Check. 11 subpart question? Check. Heres to hoping for a forgiving curve and to 6 hours down, 9 to go. sleeping now.

I didn't realize Delaware was starting today.

Brutal questions are hard for everyone, DelDad. And unlike most of us, you're 40% done now!

Today went about as expected - 2 MPTs, so a little time trouble but not analytical trouble. Almost looking forward to the MBE and getting this over :) Hope the day went well for everyone.

Wills/Partnership - weird combo!

Not a single NY Practice or Tort issue - shocking.

Yet another 100% Corporations essay (same as February) - interesting.

50% done - relieving.

Yea, I crushed a few essays, but I NEEDED to because I got just about EVERYTHING wrong on that Corp. essay. WTF. I knew so much Corp. law just to be safe and they throw in proxy voting, treasury stock voting...W.... T.... F....

It was indeed blurry. I would have preferred a straightforward elective share calculation question.
Speaking of which, I just realized I didnt say a word about the elective share issue.
Nice.

50K + 3/4 - 1 dollar if my memory serves me right. Or so I pray.
