Essentially, the Texas BLE website, has replaced Google as my homepage. This year's MBE is what really has me on pins and needles. Needless to say, I'm still cautiously optimistic. Good luck to everyone! The day is nearly upon us. 72 HOURS and counting. . .
!!! seeing "72 hours" just made me have a minor panic attack. 72 hours just sounds so much worse than 3 days. I'M GOING CRAZY
Just remember, this exam does NOT define us. Having said that, I believe most of us will be in a puddle of tears of JOY in less than 72 hours. Positive energy to everyone out there reading this post!
I feel like I would agree with you but for that terrible MBE. I really feel like I did just fine (or well enough to pass at least) on days 1 and 3. It's seriously just day 2. I still feel AWFUL about that miserable multiple choice debacle.
And damn, i wish they would just tell us already. I have a feeling our fates are already determined, and all they have to do is post.
I know right!! After this much time, they must already have the list compiled. BTW, does any one know what the median MBE score is this year?? That thing was brutal...pretty sure I bombed it.
I believe the general consensus is that it was above average in terms of difficulty. Another TLS user has compiled a data set. You can find the thread here: viewtopic.php?f=41&t=253509
I personally found the MBE section to be somewhat difficult. I finished both sections with about 15 minutes to spare. I did have that unusual pattern of consecutive D's. Neways, as for the average, I've heard that it has dropped to a "139.9, down from 141.5 in July 2014." (http://abovethelaw.com/2015/09/as-bar-e ... n-decades/
Although, obviously, not all jurisdictions had reported when the article was written.
I did have a string of Ds but maybe around 6-7 straight. I did have a lot of Ds and Bs in the am section. But then again there were multiple test forms. Another person that passed the NY exam said they didn't remember any long strings so I'm sure the test forms can make a difference.
My problem was the pm section which I thought was harder. However, my brain died for a bit when I got super drowsy. It woke up with an hour to left so I went back over my questions I answered while in the haze and changed some answers.
The MPT I think went fairly okay. I hit all the points I wanted to. Last minute I went into to add a sentence but time ran out while in mid-sentence. I'm worried about the spelling though as I didn't have time to spell check. Crim pro sucked. Essays, I missed a sub-part of small estates, was iffy on a subpart of trusts, and I got mechanic lien but didn't know the workings of it and missed the retainagebcompletely. :-S I think rest I felt fairly ok.
Mbe was a black hole of doom...
No point to rehash I know, but y'all are the only ones that understand the stress. Ok I have it off my chest.
