I hear this too. I don't know why, but I personally thought the first half was pretty cake, and the second half was moderately difficult.

Anyone else who took the CA bar still nervous because of the PTs? I will be ecstatic to get a 60 on both of them.


Yes. PTA was ridiculous. If I get a 50 on PTA and a 65 on PTB, I will be ecstatic. PTB was much much better for me, but still probably only wrote 6-7 pages of text (13k characters).

Still no NC results, which is strange since they were supposedly sent out on Friday. Hopefully they are not in two batches. I'm only about 80 miles from Raleigh.

If I was you I'd be freaking out. I'd definitely have called today and asked...

Apparently Kansas just released their results. I wonder if they release raw/scaled MBE. I really want to see the curve.

As each day passes, I'm more and more convinced I failed.

I'm glad to hear other states' results are starting to go out. My state should be soon if history is any guide. I'm sure I'll bump up my page refresh from 2 or 3 times a day to 20 times a day this coming week.

Someone is claiming they got their score back from Wisconsin with a 141 raw and a 157 scaled: http://all4jds.com/FORUMS/aft/21695.aspx

That would be an incredibly high curve.

Saw that post about the Wisconsin MBE - had the same reaction. Fingers crossed?

That's barely different than prior examinations (2011: 141 raw = 155 scaled)

Does each state scale the same way?

If so thatd be great, because I could have passed MBE at least from my Barbri super hard MBE midterm score

it is unclear to me. i THINK not, however, based on some conversations with a guy that runs a site devoted to the NY bar. but it wasn't clear to me.

but i think the differences are likely minimal

The MBE scale in NY is based on how well all the New York examinees for that administration did on the 60 question mini-test of prior questions embedded in the MBE. Likewise, the NY essay scale is based on the MBE mean and standard deviation of the New York candidates only. Basically, the raw scores (0 to 10) assigned by each reader are converted to standard scores having a mean of 50 and a standard deviation of 10. Thus, the mean and spread of these standard scores are the same for each reader and for each essay question. The average of a candidate’s essay scores (expressed as standard scores) is computed, and the distribution of these averages is then converted to common-scale values in the same way the NYMC raw scores were converted to common-scale values having the same mean and standard deviation (a measure of variability) as those New York candidates earned on the MBE. For example, if the mean common-scale value for the New York candidates on the MBE is 680, the mean common scale value for these candidates on the essay component is also 680. Accordingly, without knowing the mean and standard deviation that New York candidates earned on the MBE for that administration, there is no way to accurately determine the essay scale.


that's from the seperac guy. if that's true, then the scale in ny is determined solely by prior MBE questions, which is always what made me think people freaking out about the test being "way harder" this administration was not true.

That was one of the bigger curves. Previous July put a 141 raw at 153. http://admissions.calbar.ca.gov/Portals ... 201207.pdf

I thought that the MBE curve was nationwide, though. Could be wrong.

According to the WI website the scores should have come out Sept. 3 so it is definitely possible that someone has their WI score

No scores at all. West Virginia posts the "unofficial results" on their website by seat number and only state whether you passed or failed. Official scores were mailed today and they will have a breakdown of the scores. I don't know if they break it down to scaled/raw but once I get them I'll post it here for anyone who is interested.

Thanks for the congrats!
