Just got my MA results today and I failed by 2.5 pts, but the shocker is my MBE. I failed last time because my MBE was a 126 scaled (in MA) NY it was a little higher. This time I almost solely studied the MBE up until the last month added a few essays in daily. My MBE score here is a 127.6. 1 point better?!!? AND I hammered Civ Pro. I scored well above the avg. on most all essays. I am SHOCKED at my MBE score. Scored a 119 raw on the barbi practice. Something must have gone seriously wrong? I don't get it. Not optimistic at all about passing NY with this MBE score. Only saving thought is in NY its only worth 40% as opposed to 50% and I did very well on MA essay...and I didn't study any MA law.
Fingers crossed. I just need to know!
So sorry to hear about your score. Not to be a jerk, but I do not know how this is 'helpful information you would have liked to know' while eagerly awaiting your test results. If anything, this would only seem to lead to needless obsessing about whether one's MBE score will be as predicted based on bar prep results.
