How do you rush these last 8 subjects? How do you allocate last 11 days? E.g., Read hyper-condensed outlines for them and just muscle through practice Q's/essays (think: Magicsheets).
Do you continue with Barbri lectures/CMR continuing 1 topic per day with 25-40 MBEs and an essay per topic, finishing the topics with only a couple days before the exam to circle back for any review?
Untouched? Boy, am I reading this right? Are you sure your username isn't "Annihilated"?
Don't even think about lectures at this point. They will tire you out, and you won't remember jack. That's 3-4 extra hours you could spend on practice and learning:
Reserve two days for each of the untouched MBE subjects (~10 hrs each day)
- first day for doing a bunch of MBE problems and reviewing them and redoing them (open + closed book)
- second day for doing and reviewing a broad range of essays -- some full, mostly outlined (issues and rules only), some closed book -- redo until you can do them all closed book
MBE is the most heavily weighted section starting July, which is why there's a full day for each MBE subject.
For each of the remaining five days, split the day into a subject you've already looked at (there should be 5) and a state subject you haven't reviewed (another 5). These state subjects are relatively less of a priority, so we're giving them half day. Do a handful of MBE questions at night to keep yourself going there.
And put PR last because its appearance is virtually assured, and you want it to be the freshest in your mind.
So in sum:
Days 1-6: 3 MBE subjects
Days 7-11: Review of previous subjects + learning the 5 state subjects you didn't touch
Try to get some sleep on Monday. Hope that the adrenaline and bullshit bubbling within you will carry you through. Also, consider answering the essays in an order that makes you feel comfortable. For example, do the ones you know better first (put your answers in the right screen in Softest!).
Review MBE on Tuesday night. It's only two days long now, so it shouldn't even be THAT bad in terms of endurance (why, back in MY days... ...)
Honestly this is the biggest hail mary I've seen and I can't guarantee anything. This is just what I would do if I were in your situation. What even happened to get into this situation in the first place? What have you gone through?
