Bro there is like one state where the Bar starts tomorrow. These types of posts are freaking me out.


Haha, I figured most people will be traveling to a hotel or at least the city. Is anyone actually driving to the test site the morning of? I guess if you live in the same city.


What kind of person drives 2+ hours to the test center the morning of to be there by 8? I want to meet that guy and understand his secrets...Sounds like the kind of person who is going places ;)

I drove an hour to my LSAT, and enjoyed the relaxation time.

In this case, I just have to commute across Portland. Shorter than my 2L summer commute, nbd.


Since they changed Ohio's testing site I know people who are driving 60 miles to get there. In fact, the school chartered a bus and it leaves at 6:43AM. It's a 2.5 day test and getting up at 5:30 and then not getting home until around 6 or later seems like a good way to get worn out.

Just finished Mixed Set 6: 34/50 (68%).

You know, that's likely as good as it will get for me.

That score matches Barbri's expectations. Though it does not guarantee an auto-pass, all I have to be is mildly competent on the MEE and MPT to pass in my state.

And so ends my bar prep. 10 weeks. Thousands of questions later.

Translation: Let's rock this shit.

And let us pray to Freer that the civ pro MBE questions are closer to barbri-level than some of the other stuff I've been seeing.

6 was rough for me too, so you'll be alright. Just hoping I don't forget everything about MBE between now and Wednesday, lol.

Wish you all the very best and I know you all are going to pass with flying colors because everyone here put in their best effort.

I am very thankful for this forum and everyone here. I don't know any of you personally, and I haven't even posted as frequently, but I know you were there and I could count on you for support anytime, and I feel like I do know each of you (even though sometimes I imagine you are the person in your profile pic haha). It's even possible that I do know you personally too haha. But anyways I am a bit emotional now so bear with me.

I will miss this forum and you all for sure, but I hope none of us have to be back here! Let's crush it!

Netflix binge for now while I slowly pack. I'm going to look over my leansheets when I get to the hotel, but thats it for me.

Good luck everybody! You guys have been incredibly supportive. If a crazy Saudi prince approached me today, I would bet my savings that everybody in this thread is going to pass with room to spare.

Is this really a thing? Or by that you just mean you're scouting out the testing site.

Here in Iowa we have one. Not sure if that's what he's talking about as well. Supposed to be like an hour.

Otherwise, I've just stared at my books all morning and not opened them. Promised myself I wouldn't study today. Trying to keep myself busy with stuff around the apartment.

Planning to read some MPTs this afternoon. Figure I should at least LOOK at one that isn't in brief format and letter format. :roll:

Gotta hit up test center for preregistration (means I can arrive later tomorrow).

Then gonna skim essay outlines before bed but that's it. Would rather be fresh tomorrow and risk missing one or two questions than be exhausted and miss a handful

I'm reviewing only P&E for TX (short answers), and going to read through the sample MPTs because I only did the 1 graded Barbri one last month. Hoping to call it quits early and watch a movie in my hotel room. I'm nervous about being able to sleep tonight

Trying an unfamiliar sleeping drug the night before the exam sounds like the worst idea ever.

I have quart and gallon bags here. CA doesn't appear to specify the size, unless I missed something in the instructions. Also totally unsure if I need to find a ziploc big enough for my MacBook.

IL told us to get a 2.5G ziploc bag to put laptop in, took me a while to find those, lol
