Congrats! How did you feel RE the MBE compared to the midterm?
I didn't feel all that great while taking the midterm, but I took it at home and checked each section immediately after I finished, so I didn't have much time to sit and stew over it before I knew how I did.
I definitely felt much, much worse after the MBE. Whether it was because of the nerves or the fact that it was the real deal, or just because I didn't know how I did right after, I have no idea. I just know that I walked out of there and felt like I might as well fill out the application to take it again in February.
I think that I got so freaked out because I didn't know how I did immediately after. Every other time I knew how I did within 5 to 10 minutes. Also, now looking back on it, it probably wasn't much different then when I did all the practice questions. I'd have an idea of what I thought was the right answer, but was hardly ever 100% certain. The difference was, if there was a question that really bothered me while studying, I could stop, look it up and read the explanation. Obviously couldn't do that for the real thing. But I definitely felt much worse after the real thing.
And thanks again for the congrats!
