Check out the link. It indicates MBE-50%; Essay-40%; MPT-10%, but also that the reported scaled score is 268.

Yeah, I saw that... that's clearly wrong in light of the March 27 press release....

Yes, but the memo posted in the earlier thread was updated with April 2015 Scoring Memo... the memo released when you didn't pass......It also reflects the MPT at 2.25 rather than 1.5 times an essay score.

The scale score for the Feb 2015 exam is 264. It is also weighted 1.5x.

I am going to go with MPT worth 2.25 because of the updated April 2015 Scoring Memo......that may have been a change which came out of the March 27th meeting, but not publicized. If that is the case, we may be waiting a bit longer on our scores.

I hope. The MPT was easy as hell and I never did any MPT practice.

They are not likely to retroactively change the scoring.

I had mentally prepared myself not to get the results today but everyone on here was so confident they were coming out today I got overly excited. :( Hopefully tomorrow is our day.

Can't believe that every year they either posted on the 1st or they informed everyone it wasn't on the 1st. Nothing this year. Ridiculous.

Maybe I'm being too optimistic, but the 2:00 p.m. refers to PHONE hours, not necessarily office hours. Their April 1, 2013 tweet ("Be advised that the results for the Feb 2013 will not post today, but within the next couple days. Give your F5 key a rest for today.") was posted at 2:48 p.m.

I'm going to wait til 3 p.m. to lose all hope.

I have multiple e-mails from my processor after 2 p.m., and a few after 4 p.m., so I'm not sure why people here are convinced that 2 p.m. was a cutoff time for anything other than fielding phone calls for applicants.

I PASSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A word of encouragement to those who did not get good news: Please don't give up on this. This is not a reflection on your intelligence, or capacity to be an excellent attorney. It is just one more surmountable obstacle that not too many people are brave enough to take on. You will pass. Be stubborn about it. Be relentless about it. Be strategic about it. Be humble about it. But do it nevertheless. Do it on your own terms and in your own time. Don't wash your hands of it. Wrestle with it. Pass it.
