Ouch.

Hash browns double covered, smothered, scattered, and chunked would be a great reward though. Just sayin...

Agreed, though I might have to settle for IHOP.

There's apparently a place called Lincoln's Waffles in the District which sounds like it's about to gain a customer

I don't mean to be a debbie downer but Lincoln's Waffle Shop is a tourist trap with mediocre food and sticky tabletops (said the guy hyped to pay money to Waffle House).

Founding Farmers, Wicked Waffles, or Saison Waffles in Union Market, if you please.

Lincoln Waffles on a Saturday afternoon is full of tourists (locals also go here because its a great deal and decent food), and it is a lot more like Waffle House than Founding Farmers.

I'm not trying to get hipster waffles though when I'm eating waffles and I trust Tom Siestema too much to go to founding farmers

I'd be real hyped to pay money to Waffle House if it wasn't a whole hour away

I thought I studied and the stuff you are writing doesn't ring a bell - fun times.

Even worse then not wearing a watch, is no earplugs!!! I don't think that makes any sense.

I'm busting out one each of my Dixon Ticonderoga Blacks, Mirado Black Warriors, and Ninja Pencils.

Will probably only need one of them, but that trifecta is my standardized test pencil perfection.

And yeah, it's odd that the MPRE has even more restrictive rules than the LSAT, unless the LSAT has substantially changed in the past 3 years or something.

Its actually more stricter then even the bar exam.

I only use Dixon Ticonderoga Blacks. I don't even recognize other pencils.

The no food/drink thing threw me for a loop, even the LSAT and the bar let you bring those (with certain restrictions). Also I definitely need to hunt down some pencils!

Pretty sure that wouldn't include the tribunal.

Personally I'd just do practice tests/questions at this point and then review both the ones you get wrong and get right. I personally feel like I've gotten way more value from PTs/PQs than I did from the outlines or lectures (possibly because my attention span would make a molecule look sizeable).

If you're doing Barbri -- practice questions, because that is pretty much exactly what the MPRE is gonna look like.

In case anyone needs last minute help, it looks like BarMax is giving away their MPRE course for free: https://twitter.com/BarMax/status/793972849748774912
