Some other thoughts from what i remember (again your state might be a bit different so check your states bar website for the rules, but I bet its the same or close to it)
We have to use the 1 gallon bags like for the LSAT and everything had to fit in there.
You could bring in a snack or a soda or something, but no wrappers, meaning you have to take the packadging off. Wrap a snack bar in clear platic wrap then so it does not get everything else sticky.
Take pencils on MBE day, at least 4, they may have a pecil sharperner, they may not, so take a small one if you can.
Take at least 2 PENS on essay day, even if your uing the computer. They will not provide them and if you computer dies, or power goes out and have you ahve to write you want black pens. They photo copy the handwritten essays, and other colors don't copy as well, so black ONLY
No highlighters, they will take hem from u, here was a huge pile by the door, man i should have grabed some one the way out.
No backpacks, purses, cell phones, jackets ect. Leave that stuff in the car. Not even a case for your computer. If you get cuaght with a cell phone they consider you a cheater, check your pockets twice before you go in. Put your cell phone in your trunk, thives know when bar day is and if you phone is out where they can see it in your car your asking for a break in.
Get a mini surge protector
Once you instal the bar software on your computer don't install any new programs, who knows what might make it fuck up
I got two platcic bags and put my stuff for each day in one of them, including my ID, bar name tag and whatever else I have to bring. Then put a sticky note on the outside of each bag TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY (and diffrent colors) and laid them on my dining room table. That way i did not have to think about or take the chance of forgeting something on exam day, it was already packed.
Let you freinds/family/classmates know that from the Sunday before until the day after the exam to please not call you, e-mail, or stop over to your house. let them know you will be cut off from the world those X days and you will call them all back/e-mail/facebook day after, or day after u sober up.
You will be mentally and phiscally exhausted after day one. You will likely be scared too, feel like you failed, and want to review everything in a desprate last minuet attept becuase you think things went horrible day one. Everyone feels like this. DO NOT DO IT. Your done studying, you won't learn anything more that night and your barain needs rest and sleep. Go home, go to bed.
If your taking anything like ambein or tylonal PM to help you sleep start at least a week before the exam so you know what effect it has on you.
Set sevral alarms, your alarm clock, your cell phone, whatever, but have aback up.
Stop studying the Sunday before the tuesday of the exam. You brain need rest, you need rest. Relax on Monday, get to bed erly.
Eat breakfest, if you don't normally do this, start a week before the exam so you know when the tried part kicks in.
Its really important, I think, to start your schedual like its bar day at least a week before it really is. Your gonna be running on addrenaline on bar day, and you need everything else to be second nature, what time you eat, snack, sleep so your can focus soley on the task at hand.
All the menaial prep you do before hand just eans you don't have to worry about those things the days before the exam.
Finally, after the last day of the exam go out and have fun. But don't be like a few classmates of mine and get DUIS, take cabs.
Last and most important all you need is a pass, your not going for an A here. And pass on the bar, depnding on the satte, can be like a 60%, so your just trying for mininimum compnctncy.
