Just leaving. I was in line at 8:05 this morning. Hit with con law, civ pro, evidence, and crim pro all in a row. At least I could leave on a contracts high note.

I left all my MBE stuffs at home. I guess I can always do the app thing, but I better not.

Haha what was the limit? I spewed my brain for days and applied law to fact like I was talking to a three year old. Think I had 10K words or more after the ordeal was over.


4600 "characters" per question (9200 for MPT). Note, NOT words, characters... I had to stop using double space before period to save character counts.

Welp.
Didn't realize the MPT had a character limit (I assume this is the same everywhere?). Looks like the last 2000 characters of my response won't be there. Fortunately they were mostly summary but still.

Was there a character limit in PA. I didn't even see one in the instructions?

About 100 percent certain no. I also took PA. If there is a chracter limit or word limit I am screwed.

I was talking about IL. If you didn't know, your state probably doesn't have one.

Did you feel that the PT was really hard? I struggled with that thing bad.

If you had a limit, exam soft literally prevented you from typing anymore until you delete enough to go below the limit...

Not to stress you out but no. I was very worried about PT and practically did everyone since 2006. Compared to some of the other beasts of PTs PA has had, I thought this was actually easy. But then again, I could have done it entirely incorrectly and got pwned. Trying not to think too much about anything I did today though.

Overall, I feel okay. I just hate questions that set you up for bad answers--like "state the arguments for both sides" and then you end up basically repeating the same stuff over and over.

CT taker? We had the same essays. I was shocked that we had straight crim and now crim pro.

Fml i felt good about all of the subjects except 2. I nailed all the others. I just need to pass only 1 of the 2 to pass the exam. (If i fail both i fail the exam)

It's going to be a long wait.

I'm reviewing torts, civil procedure, constitutional law and property. But might skip property or just skim through it instead.
Also might just start a movie instead because I doubt I'll remember anything I'm looking at right now anyway.

I read one outline/subject after today's exam. But I'm too tired to look at any more.

Fuck it. I'm done with studying for this test

I just did about 50 Adaptibar questions and tested relative to previous scores. I did all those mini barbri lectures and created a mini outline of that. Shower, read that, sack out and hope that what I have learned throughout all these weeks does no fail me tomorrow.

Especially when you have clear standing issues to address.
Con law was another matter.

We also had those topics. Thought they were pretty gentle actually.

Not sure if you had the same MPT. I thought the MPT was a slam dunk. Pretty easy issues to spot. My one fear is that maybe I made everything too simple. I walked out feeling confused and being like "that's it?" I was expecting a lot more panic and confusion on both sections.
