They do. Based on prior years I think North & Central Florida should expect to get their scores & oath in the mail tomorrow.


Just got it (I'm in S. Florida, Broward County) and there was no MBE score, only the Part A and Part B scaled scores. Was hoping to get a look at that MBE score!


Part B is the scaled MBE score.

Got my results in the mail today too. I enjoyed pouring over other user's stats to try and find predictive value while I waited on results, so for others who enjoy that I will share my stats.

166 LSAT/4.0 GPA, top 25% at a T1

Kaplan (98.5% completion, did not even look at the FSP plan for the last two weeks, 1,200 practice MBEs)
Adaptibar (73.4% accuracy after 1,500 practice MBEs)
Average Kaplan Essays: Submitted ~9 for grading. Never had an answer that "demonstrated competence." My scores ranged from 37 to 49, mostly ~42.
Kaplan Part A simulation: 60/100 MCQs
Kaplan MBE Midterm: 135/200 raw
Kaplan MBE Final: 148/200 raw (kaplan predicted +15 for scaling, 163 final MBE predictor)

I felt bad about Part A, thought I failed it by a few points. Felt good about MBE.

Actual Part A Score: 164.0
Actual Part B Score: 167.0

Where do we mail our oath of attorney? To the Florida Supreme Court or the Florida board of bar examiners ?

Where do I send my completed oath?
If you are authorized to be sworn in, you must send your properly executed oath to the board’s office at 1891 Eider Court, Tallahassee, FL 32399-1750, within 90 days of the letter authorizing you to be sworn in.

What do you mean, "all the sections"? I only got a part A and part B score: No breakdown of Fl essay and FL m/c. Just squeaked by with 141 on A and 143 on the MBE. Just happy that I passed!

If you fail, I think they give you a breakdown of each essay score and how many questions you got right for each topic covered on the MCQ. All you get when you pass is your overall scaled scores for Part A and Part B.

Does anyone have any Florida bar prep materials they're looking to sell? I'd be interested - I recently accepted a job in FL, and have to prep for the Feb exam. Thanks

I am planning on taking the July 2017 Florida bar and was wondering if anyone had left over outlines that I could look at. I am a barred Maryland attorney and working full-time, so I am trying to get a bit of a head start on the FL Law. Thanks!

Essay 1 - FL Con Law (awful) and Torts
Essay 2 - Property, Contracts, Ethics
Essay 3 - Trusts, Family, Ethics

MC: Corporations, Evidence, Procedure

At least I think so. Not totally sure. Wow, that was rough. :shock:

I can attest to the above, it was genuinely awful. Glad I am not the only one feeling this way.

Not by far. Is my above recollection right? That's what I talked about anyway lol. What the hell did you write for the first essay?? Also, what time are you getting there tomorrow? Hoping the MBE will be better than the FL day!

Yeah, I think you nailed the major topics. The first essay was a mess, I put what ever I could remember about counties down and without getting too specific anything else relevant I could think of that may apply. I don't want to get too specific until at least after the MBE tomorrow, I want to limit the amount of bad vibes until after the mbe lol.

edited for time, I will probably get up at the same time I did today, 640 just to check out of the hotel and what not. I was thinking about going in later since we don't get badges but I'll probably just drive a bit slower on the way and maybe grab a coffee this time. I opted for caffeine pills today to limit the amount of bathroom time but I was fine on time so I may splurge tomorrow.

Yup. Unfortunately, everyone thought if/when they returned to FL Con, it would be a Homestead question. This was not. Made up some BS to get me through but it was rough.
