i think we got another few weeks.

from what i've been reading if you got a 133 or higher you are golden for NJ as long as you didn't get a 1 or 2 on the essays.

i got a 125 so i need like a 5+ on every essay at least, so i hope i rocked the essays, i feel like i did but idk. pressure is on.

So sorry, as I failed too I can understand you perfectly.
In my case high essays and low MBE.

February 2016 here we go...


Yep,last attempt before UBE comes into effect. My essay one is 60 and there two 30 something essays. What did you used for essay preparation, Barbri? I have to admit I spend too much time on MBE but I still got a low score as 137.6. I don't feel confident about the FEB... Should I try one more time? Sad question...



i cant believe my low MBE...124.5 ....someone on here asked if anyone got lower on the bar than the practice...i got 127 RAW on final practice exam...


I attended Barbri a few years ago and I used the old books. Not sure how the final practice exam you took is like. Civil pro included? I used adaptibar...


i used adaptibar too...did about 800 questions....1500 total with my bar review course...i did pieper with civ pro included...

Anyway, let's study hard. I believe we can pass next time. Tomorrow is a new day though. BTW, can you share some study materials with me? I would like to have some updated bar prep notes.

First time and Self-study. For essays I used the essays released by BOLE, I did almost all. For MBE I used Strategies and Tactics by Emmanuel. I got 160 in final practice test. Also some exercises from BarBri and Kaplan.

I passed? I got a 124.5 MBE and it says congratulations, but I kinda don't believe it. How is that possible? How do I look at my essay scores.

My anxiety was so bad I never wrote out a full essay before test day. Took the midterm but not the final (low 120s).

My prep genuinely consisted of watching the barbri videos and filling in most of the pdf outlines. I did this over the course of July.

I have been dreading this day.

Passed. Heartfelt feels to those who missed the cut.

You'll never get to see the essay scores, just enjoy the fact that you passed!

This is an almost literal miracle. I can't believe it. Is there anyway of knowing my overall score? I must have just squeaked by.

Man, I'm sorry, that sucks. I don't know how I passed with such a low MBE. I'm stunned.

Btw, receiving CLE emails is not guarantee of passing the Bar. I have received from many companies and failed. So I'll ban and unsubscribe from all companies, haha.

That's nearly an auto pass for NJ. Anything over 150 and you can pass by just drooling on the page.

Third try, passed with 145 MBE. Just wanna cry.
I am with barbri for all this three times, for the first two, i didn't follow their program and I finished around 80 percent. Got 123 in midterm.

Congrats to all have passed, and for those who didn't this time, it really sucks but things will get better, the bonus is, you will get stronger, just trust me.
