I might lose access to my computer for a few days (I'm worried something is wrong with it and want to get it checked out with a lot of lead time) and I'm curious how much shifting to iPad is going to interrupt my schedule. I find the iOS app to be a little suboptimal but I've never tried working directly from the Themis site on my iPad.



You'd have to download the Themis app and say goodbye to 2X or 1.5X. Also, good luck trying to multi-task doing the handouts and typing notes.


Typing notes?

"When the defendant heard that his neighbor, the plaintiff, intended to hire a painter to paint the plaintiff’s house a shocking yellow color, the defendant told the plaintiff that the plaintiff and his wife and children would meet with 'accidents' if he did so. . . .

Answer choice A is correct. Intentional infliction of emotional distress is the use of extreme and outrageous conduct to intentionally or recklessly inflict severe emotional distress. Here, the defendant’s comments constitute extreme and outrageous conduct, which was said with the intent to cause the plaintiff emotional distress."

Uh yeah, sure.

Jesus some of these MBE questions are bullshit.

One I KNEW the answer, but they use some bullshit wording to describe it oddly.

I'm at 33%, BUT I'm actually behind on my reviewing. I just push it through on the program so I can get to the next lectures and review in my off hours. I'm outlining property right now and I still have to do evidence, even though I'm doing my contracts lectures. So if I'd the reviewing at the time it told me to, I'd probably be more like 25% or something. I also don't read the MBE outlines until I do my review - I just watch the lectures first and then review after doing practice questions and finishing the lectures, because gross.

Jesus Christ. I'm at 18%, and I am only a couple days behind the checklist they sent out. Calm the fuck down, people. It's all review after July 04, anyway.

I scored a 70% on the property questions (34). I don't think I've felt happier in my entire life.

I don't wanna call you out, because your post is totally unoffensive. But I think we should avoid talking about %'s we all get right. That 2013 Bar thread has devolved in a gunner contest and neurotic eco-chamber because they are comparing scores.

What say you all?

Dis. Also, of the 5 classes we all saw at lawl skool–-Classes of 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015--2013 was gunnertastic. Or maybe I saw the wrong people at East Coast Trap U.

I apologize - I can see how it's in bad taste. I discussed earlier how I was struggling with con law and torts (citing low(er) percentages) so I thought this was fair game. Didn't mean to be a gunner!

I don't really care. I'm not competing with anyone here, and I feel like that was more of a "holy shit, 70% right" than a "you suck, I did better than you."

If it devolves into a competition, then yes, ban on percentages.

The way I see it, if you're doing above 70% right now, I want you to give me your notes or be available for questions later on.

Like I said, I'm really not trying to call you a gunner, you aren't being one at all. Good job on 70%, I am jelly.

Just don't want this place to be gunning territory. Questions about what percentage we should be at, or whatever are totally legit and helpful.

I'm fine with it either way, seems like people don't really care. So maybe we allow it and deal with if it ever is a real problem.

Yea, if you get 70% on gameday, that's probably a 145 on the MBE. Great place to be now.

It's probably higher, broseph. I was doin some research the other day to see what the ballpark correlation was between raw and scaled scores. The idea was to add 10-15 points to your raw score, and it'd give you a ballpark scaled score. 70% is a 140. So that's 150-155. Of course, the state you're in, it's corresponding curve, and the date of examination, Feb v July, all factor in.

Probably, but I wanted to do a worst case scenario. Almost 150 right?
