Based on my July scores / feelings after exam / BARBRI feedback: I predict 60-65 on Essay 1, 65-75 on Essay 2, 55-75 on Essay 3 (finished way early on this one, went back and added some BS), 55-65 on Essay 4 (stupidly wrote that no contracts damages because for sale of property, though solid equitable remedies), 65-70 on Essay 5, 55 on Essay 6 (Wills was always my worst subject, after the "Was there a valid will" analysis I get all screwed up...), 60-70 on PR 1, 55 on PR 2, 150 on MBE (same as July).
I'm considering booking a hotel for July 2015 right now, because once the results come out Im guessing everything will be booked. I can cancel if I happen to pass.
I also got a 1500 MBE in July (lot of good that did me).
If your estimates are on point, you should be right there.
Its ridiculous we got such high MBE scores and didn't pass - can't we waive into DC with scores like these?? I'm hoping July wasn't a fluke for me. I did about 1500 MBEs prepping for July - I got through about 3,000 this time (though a lot was quantity over quality) although I still ended up scoring the same on the BARBRI final exam after all that as I did in July (wtf!) I'm hoping the addition of Civ Pro helps rather than harms.
So did you mainly screw up on the Essays / PT in July? I'm assuming you were fairly close.
In July I stubbornly (foolishly and arrogantly) made the same mistake I made throughout law school: I identified the law, but did not "work" with the facts enough on my essays. Plus, I stupidly, stupidly, stupidly, did not spend any time studying for the PTs and got 60s on both where a 65 on just one would have passed me.
While I worked more with the facts in Feb, I personally thought the law was tougher on the Feb essays, and I personally feel like the examiners were kinda messing with us on the essays, by: 1) Repeating multiple subjects from July, 2) Repeating subjects within the exam (which I've never seen before), 3) Not including PR (which I've never seen before), 4) Numerous cross-over questions.
I'm probably reading way too much into it, but it felt like the examiners were making a statement on the Feb exam - like "don't try and predict what we're gonna do with the essay questions, 'cause you can't" or something like that.
