Did a quick informal survey and it seems that they are often posted by 5pm the day before. See August 2016 and March 2015

I think I will just use TLS as my means of notification. I didn't seen anything in my File Cabinent on NCBE around1pm. Not going to refresh all day. This is way more entertaining.

Good luck everyone!

The fact that I am sitting here fretting over the freaking MPRE makes my soul hurt. But that is what I am going to do. Hopefully the sad trombone that's been haunting me since around 11 EST on 3/18 will finally go quiet.

I promise you all passed the MPRE. I thought I legit failed- and got well into the 100s. There are so many 2Ls who just wing that, they tend to bring the curve down making it easier for you all to pass lol :)

Yep. Just barely outside of the 3 years. I should have sat for July 2016! Ugh.. and I scored high enough last time for NY. So if I don't pass this time that is going to suck bad!

Maybe it's because we've all failed, and they don't know how to break it to us. They're hiding out in an office somewhere saying 'you tell them' ... 'no, you tell them' ... 'I'm not telling them, happyhour 1122 et al will freak, you tell them' OR we've all passed and they're deliberately letting us stress it out for a couple more hours.

ok. i'm going to start refreshing again. every click is going towards my bar score.
NCBE or whatever your name is, you better post our results otherwise I'm going to be so mad. (posting on TLS is the worst they'll get) but Karma is a bitch. If you are slow, oneday you are going to wish ihings moved faster. I promise. :lol: :lol: :lol:

who am I talking to? I don't know

Score is up as of 3:50pm est

edit: for future MPRE takers looking for guidance: I WAY overstudied. I spent all of spring break (about 6 days) studying--did 3-4 days of learning material, and 2 days of taking practice exams. It wasn't an all-day, stay-up-all night thing--but I definitely spent 8 hours each day studying. I got significantly higher than 100, so obviously wasted my spring break when I didnt need to. I was dumb and neurotic/anxious.

That being said, I felt better about the exam coming out of it and I'm glad I overprepared. Take it with a grain of salt, but if you're neurotic/anxious like me and worry endlessly about your test-taking abilities, don't let other people make you feel bad for overstudying if it gives you peace of mind.

Just got my score! No email, just refreshed the NCBE account

eta: for future MPRE takers trolling old forums to see how much to study, I studied for two days with Barbri. I didn't listen to any of the lectures. Instead, I started by reading the condensed outline, then took a practice exam. For any question I wasn't sure of, I looked up the section in the Barbri book. Did the same for the second exam. For the third, I didn't allow myself to check the book. My scores were 47/60, 46/60, 47/60. I got a 104 on the exam.

If I had to do it again, I would've started by reading the whole outline instead of the condensed version. The major issues like conflicts and confidentiality are easy to grasp, it's the random little rules that tripped me up. I also had a physical copy of the Barbri book, which I found really helpful (it was a 2014 version I got for like a dollar at my school's used bookstore). I don't think the online version is very easy to navigate. I also think I would've done a few more practice tests, just for my own sanity. I'm a 3L and I realllly didn't want to have to take it in August.

Passed. Good luck all. On a separate note, I seriously need to go see someone re: anxiety. Was freaking out for absolutely no reason over this stupid ass test.
