Sorry but this may be icky so fair warning if you continue reading on...

I finally have that "general comfort" that people talked about leading up to the exam. Do I know everything? GOD NO but I feel like I know enough to get a solid D+ only thing that will beat me at this point would be an essay dedicated solely to NY evidence and another dedicated solely to secured transactions in the same exam. *knocks on 1,000 pieces of wood* Let's do this!!!

I'm glad you feel this way! For me, it's unclear whether my ambivalence is due to well-preparedness or just plain I don't give a fuck any more and am too tired to study now.

nooo! reciprocal confidence help! one of my friends told me not to focus on the score of the practice mbe because the real point of them is to make you learn, so you just have to view questions wrong as ones that you're learning to get right next time. i know it's late in the game, but at least one of those that sucked to get wrong you know you'll never get wrong again. as soon as my pep talk on this board and change in mindset, my scores came right back up, too. you're gonna be okay!

^ I was planning to do nothing but I might have to do something since I feel like I forgot everything.

I can pass without knowing conflicts of law, right?

I am doing one 50 Q MBE set, and then I am going to stare at a blank wall and eat potato chips for roughly 7 hours.

I'm there with you Underoath! I would panic too. So I plan for my day to look like: packing, then studying the last three state specific subjects that I haven't reviewed yet, then road tripping it with my bestie to the exam site city, then laying in my hotel bed and doing a cursory review of everything I'm bad at. Then ordering really indulgent room service and watching a movie.

Now, if I can actually do all of that... is an entirely different question.

Tomorrow I will be driving for like 4 hours. Not sure if I will have energy to do anything else, although I really need to.. I have a felling I don't remember state specific subjects at all, so I might go over a few outlines..

Really though, are the questions going to be more like milestone exam questions or mixed MBE questions? I'm trying to figure out how I can get like 65% on the milestone exams when I'm getting 85% on the mixed MBE's. Maybe doing problems on paper makes me 20% dumber.

Just got a 83% on Mixed MBE 16...that's gotta be a fluke. I am usually around the 60% range

Finally got to 100% tonight - although I cheated by just reading/outlining/reviewing the final 15 essays. I keep trying to reassure myself with statistics, but I don't think there's any way to feel completely confident about this exam. I'm pretty sure when this is over it'll be one of the greatest feeling of our lives, though.

Love you guys! No one understands this...and yes "law students love to complain" is what I've heard before, but you know what?! YOU WOULD TOO IF YOU WERE IN OUR SHOES!!

I'm glad to have this outlet to vent and have others share in the frustration, happiness, joy, sadness, and every other emotion this ride has been. Good luck everyone....

I'm also at 87%. I did all the essays (sorta) but only got through MBE mixed set 8 or something, so it wants me to do 700 MBE questions today. Hahahaha. If I could click "Review Secured Transactions" or whatever I'm sure my percentage would be much higher but as we all know it doesn't let you do that.

Doing a set or two of MBE, reviewing topics, and then calling it a day. 87% FTW!

Yeah I'm going to do .5% today so I can hit 90% complete and call it good. Just going to review Secured Transactions, Domestic Relations, and PR. Then I'm ready for this thing.

In our book that has our milestone exams in it -- at the very end there are 100 "extra" questions that aren't on the Themis portal. If you haven't done those already, you could use those!
