I have a couple of interviews in July, but am wondering if I'd just be better off just asking to move them out until AFTER the exam.
Honestly, it's a struggle. I have had four interviews this month because I went kind of insane with the apps and it is really distracting. You have to prepare for the interview well, which keeps you from being able to focus and then after the interview you're all worked up and shit hahah. I stopped applying. After this next interview tomorrow, I'm done. I think I will have a follow-up interview for a clerkship in a couple of weeks but I'm not applying for anything new. On one hand, you really are ahead of the competition because once the bar exam passes, these employers are going to be FLOODED with resumes. But on the other hand, it really isn't worth getting totally and completely distracted while you have to focus.
Just bombed Property Set 4 with a 65%.
That's a passing score, so I wouldn't say you bombed it...
Yeah, unless you've been getting 90s, that's not bombing it. I'm around 70 with Property, so I might have been a little disappointed with 65, but not too upset about it.
This happened yesterday with Evidence for me. Had been consistently around 73, but ended up with 60 yesterday because I just got frustrated and that affected my performance. Think it happens to us all.
Yeah, it's all driving me nuts. I think I'm making progress then on the 4th set I keep dropping. For Contracts and Property both I went from 65% to 70% to 75% and then back to 65% on set 4. It makes me feel like I've learned nothing when I score just as poorly on the fourth set as I did on the first.
I have rarely gotten 75% (usually on the first set of 17 MBE questions), but right now I'm around 55-65% for each one. I'm focusing on spending more time reviewing my materials, praying it gets better and more things start to stick. I just can't remember anything! (I even forgot my atm pin the other day).
I don't know, I think I'm just having trouble accepting the fact that I need to just aim to pass this thing and that it's impossible to know everything. But it gives me anxiety having so much material that I'm unfamiliar with, I can't stand it.
