I think it's for those attending unaccredited law schools. As for what that correlates with, I leave that as an exercise for the reader. The file is here and it is grim: https://admissions.calbar.ca.gov/Portal ... 2015_R.pdf.

Or, if you just want to take it. Not sure why the fuck you'd do that to yourself, but clearly people have. Is there any other benefit??? Because it looks like 14 students took it 'because why the fuck not'.

But, to piggy back, there will likely be no relevant correlation because of the vast majority of CBX takers are ABA and CA accredited (totaling 88% last July) and not unaccredited schools for which the 1st year exam is targeted. And, of the people that took the 1st Year Student's Exam, only 5% of the 272 were ABA or CA accredited. To put that into even greater perspective, approximately 0.26% of CBX takers from an ABA or CA accredited school likely actually took the 1st Year Bar Exam.

Basically, stats from the 1st year student exam mean fuck all--IMHO

My boss gave me my first patent application to write this week. I'm sure it was so I am busy enough to keep my mind off of things.

Does anyone know what the results page looked like in February? They aren't still putting text in red even if you pass right?

Per a Kaplan rep, if you pass, it looks like this:

Home - Bar Exam > Examination Pass List > Lookup > Results

July 2015 California Bar Examination

------------------------------------------------------------

| Application Number: 123

| File Number : 12345

| Name: Your Name Here

------------------------------------------------------------

The name above appears on the pass list for the July 2015 California Bar Examination

I guess it's time to hunt down that damned card they gave us at the bar exam with our ID numbers on it.

Those numbers are also available in an email from admissions_correspondence@calbar.ca.gov with the subject "Application to take the July 2015 California Bar Examination."

I apologize if you were hoping to use the search for that plastic card as a distraction from waiting.

I always wonder how people lose an important card like that every year. Or at least not write down the numbers somewhere.

This is my first post on here and have been checking in on it for the last few days... for the camaraderie. Whoever posted this calculator score combo - THANK YOU - this has really boosted my confidence and mood!

mike.alexander23 wrote:What the best/most assuring one time calculator score combo you guys came up with?

I Just pulled this one out that made me smile

Essay 1 (civ pro): 65
Essay 2 (Real Prop): 65
Essay 3 (crim pro): 60
Essay 4 (Comm prop.): 65
Essay 5 (bullshit cross of Corp./Ethics): 55
Essay 6: (bullshit takings?/conlaw?): 60
PT A: 60
PT B: 65
Raw MBE: 126

FINAL SCORE-->1440 = PASS

This is a very conservative estimate of scores. I feel really good about real property and CP, so not getting a 70+ on at least one would be a surprise.

NP. It made me feel better. You can fail half the essays, half the PTs, and the MBE (assuming 128 raw is passing this year) and still pass. So it's definitely possible. Keep your heads up!

Hope to see some celebrations here on Friday! I for one will be cashing out on the barmageddon anticipation bubble that will have built to critical mass, before it pops.

I did have that fire, and I've moved twice since the bar. At least, that's my excuse.

First thing I did was take a pic and store it. But, that said, coming out of Thursday was a blur. I could easily see how it could get lost in the jumble of packing, coming off such a grueling exam, etc.

I think the fire is a great excuse. Sorry about that fire, again.

*Stupid Question Alert*

Applicant number = application number right? The screen asks for the applicant number and this email says application number. I find it super odd they emphasize the card so much when the same info is in an email. Who wants to keep track of some card for 5 months?

I just compared my card with the email and, yes, the App# is the applicant/application number.
