MPRE Question

Postby Bronx Bum » Wed Nov 28, 2012 1:51 pm

Have it scheduled friday because of hurricane.

I know nothing about it. Is it timed? Is it long? Is it realistic I can get to work at 12 if it's given at 9am assuming everything is in manhattan? If I study from 6pm-12am on thursday can someone of average law school intelligence pass?

Thanks a lot in advance!

IMO six hours is not enough study time (unless you have already spent four hours watching the barbri video). I studied for four hours of barbri video plus two hours of reviewing notes from video plus eight hours of practice tests (took all four in barbri book) and I haven't gotten my score back but I am worried I didn't pass for NY. I go to CLS and I am a very good test taker. I have not taken PR yet (although I think that might be an advantage bc I am not confused by other jurisdictions' rules).

I knew the rules pretty well on the test day but it seemed like most questions were testing some further nuance beyond the basic rule. Lots of people say everyone feels like they failed and them it turns out they over studies so I guess you can takey advice w a grain of salt since I don't know my score. But another respected and intelligent poster on TLS (rayiner) also thought it was hard and failed the first time and studied much harder the second time and still got a 117 which is good but the highest possible score is 150.[/quote]

ETA: OP has already taken the test but I am coming back here to correct this for future law students. As the wise ones who came before me said, I overstudied and passed with a 133. I still think six hours might be on the low end (because you should watch the BarBri video and then maybe do one or two practice tests and review the ones you got wrong), but what I did was overkill. Oh, but I am a very good test taker so that probably helped. Good luck, OP!

Have you taken ethics (PR)? I know opinions vary, but if you have taken ethics 6 hours is MORE than enough time, including watching the video. But only you know how you need to study.
