I completely fucked up a rule of law, and applied all of the facts to that rule, thus missing out on like 60% of Barbri's points. On the bar, what would happen if we get the rule wrong and then apply all of the facts to that rule?
I feel like I should be coasting at this point... I'm averaging about 70% on Barbri's MBE stuff, and I'm in a pure UBE state. Should I legitimately be worried, or is this pretty common?
I don't know how you guys are self grading all these essays. My book has questions, and model answers. There's nothing to grade with.
My MEE book has a self-scoring rubric for each essay prompt, along with a model answer. Its nice to get an idea of where you stand, but I have trouble being fair in my grading. I either give myself a point for getting sort of close, or I don't county any points because I'm trying to be too strict.
