My only hope is that I saw several D's in my AM session (luckily I didn't change my answers) and I felt okay with the essays.


I dont understand when people say the final was out of 200. I must've missed something cause the last full scale I took was the refresher and that was out of 100.


I took a PMBR final and it was out of 200. The Barbri refresher was out of 100.

I am so anxious. Good grief.


I have less than 24h before I decide if I love or hate Barbri...



You passed. Start celebrating!

For those of us still waiting, IL chart for this year is up. Compare your Barbri percentile to the MBE scale score and that is probably the best estimate of how you did on the real thing.

Other than the mid-term, how can you tell your Barbri percentile? I don't know that using the mid-term is a good measure b/c a lot changes from then to the final. I think for the final there was a target, but I don't recal seeing any percentiles.

Barbri gave you week by week percentiles on the questions you did (broken down by subject, just take a rough guess of what the average was across subjects). The point is moot now since we can no longer log on and see.

Felt somewhat pissed with Barbri when I left the exam. I am eating my words now that I passed.

I got an email from Barbri this morning saying my book return was processed and my card was credited. I did media mail, and sent it maybe 2-3 weeks after the bar exam.

I'm confused.....Barbri seems to be charging people for a retake after they failed? Both students still have their books in their possession.

edit: seems to be only book deposit.

Just got my score advisories from IL. Now I really want to know if I got a 150 or a 190...

Illinois Board of Admissions to the Bar wrote:Based on DC’s scaled score requirement of 133, I am pleased to advise that you are eligible to transfer your Illinois MBE score to DC. Based on Minnesota’s scaled score requirement of 145 and on North Dakota’s scaled score requirement of 150, I am also pleased to advise that you are eligible to transfer your Illinois MBE score to Minnesota and North Dakota.


So all I know is my MBE scale is 150+.

I got a 124/200 on my Barbri full day simulation and a 64/100 on the refresher.

Nicely done!

Are you planning on transferring any scores? There is a satellite DC office where I work, so I was thinking about doing it, but am not sure if it is worth the hassle.

I'm going to transfer to DC cause I am doing IP, and DC makes sense. I even entertained the idea of MN due to the proximity to IL even though I dont plan on practicing there. I doubt I'll transfer in to ND though.
