Definitely failed. I guess I'll actually study for the August exam

I found many questions were tricker than barbri. I am hoping for a favorable curve. If I take it again I will study a lot more to avoid this feeling of uncertainty for five G.D. weeks.

Chill. Most people feel this way and end up passing with flying colors. Remember, it's a very low bar for passing (like 60% correct).

I'll be really embarrassed if I don't pass in all jurisdictions.

There was a dude wearing a suit at my location. I almost loled.

Maybe he had work afterwards? Otherwise that would be really lulzy.

I'll chill for now. If I don't pass, I will rapidly un-chill. EFF, I don't want to take this again in August.

I thought the exam was trickier than the practice questions I did from Kaplan. I'm betting there's a generous curve.

I definitely thought it was harder than what most of my classmates were saying. People kept on saying, "Only idiots fail it"; and how they took it cold and scored above a 100.

The questions themselves can be tricky, but the bar for passing is set so low (esp. in states that take only a 75+).

Can we get out raw score anywhere? I'm curious to see how generous that curve was.

After several weeks of: Dear God, please. All need is an 85. Please, I don't want to have this hanging over my head until after the bar. I failed, I know it. What kind of excuse can I come up with for why I failed? I had the sniffles. I'll just tell everyone I had the flu.

121. And last day of class!

I studied and still only got a __.

For those still looking go to http://www.ncbex.org/exams/mpre/, select Dashboard on top right, log in, and scroll down. Save the letter because I think it gets taken down or something.

So happy I passed in all jurisdictions. Here's to the same success on the July Bar!
