I just did it. I actually thought it was much easier while I was taking it! Or at least the first 100 questions seemed that way. The last 50 or so were HARD. But even with the extra difficulty, I could usually eliminate two answer choices immediately. The questions were hard but a lot of the answer choices seemed particularly bad. If that makes sense.
Anyway, I just put in my answers online and got the exact same score on that as I did on the final MBE (130). But I guess I get to add 25 points to this test for scaling and to adjust for the difficulty? So, based on this score and my final MBE score, I should be somewhere between 145 and 155. Pretty big difference between those two scores. According to Separac's data, it's either median or all the way in the top 1/4.
Guess I'll have to think about what to do next (focus on MBEs? Essays?).
My rep told me to add 12-15 points, I'm not sure if that is based on my jurisdiction though. I'd rather have the 25 points!! That would give me a 161!! I still sort of think this was a fluke!
Every time I got it down to two choices I'd think to myself, "which one is ice cream and which is mint chocolate chip?" lol.
Going forward I think I need to do more practice essays, I'm thinking two per day plus 50 MBE per day. At this point I don't think I'll learn anything new and I am worried about burn out.
lol at ice cream vs. mint chocolate chip. If I pass this bar exam I should mail Fromm a giant fruit basket in appreciation, because it sure won't be from my awesome study and memorization skillz.
re: burnout. I'm feeling it hard. My SO called in today so I could have a full day of studies away from the baby and I hit it hard early this morning. By about 4:00 I was going real slow, and now my brain feels like mush. I am kicking myself for not practicing MEE earlier with any consistency because I can't really afford to take a day off as it stands now. I am barely functional on these essays! At this point I feel like I will not be completely screwed if I get secured transactions, FRCP, and maybe family law. My MBE subjects are a mess but I can't justify spending much time on them even though I can't really recite many rules, especially for contracts and evidence. And all other MEE subjects are just non-existent. So tomorrow I am tackling UCC-3, estates & wills, and trusts. Then Thursday doing the additional MBE so I don't lose all the good Fromm info. Then back to MEE for corps, partnership&agency, and conflicts of law over the weekend. Sunday some mixed MBE and MEE, then monday I am taking it really easy for obvious reasons.
Good Lord y'all, only a few days.
