Yuck! If I ever have to retake the bar I'll have to retake the MPRE because my score expires soon. I'm not too concerned about passing the NYLE, it's just finding the time. And if I do pass, the June NYLE is right in the middle of a conference I have to attend. So I'll just sneak out at lunch that day I suppose...

I personally thought it was tougher than I anticipated. Don't underestimate it, bu tyou should totally be fine if you review the outlines and know how to control +f the shit out of it.

I know, especially when so many other states manage to. You know they have to have a date internally to have all this stuff done, why can't they just share it?

I think its gotten harder over time- i took the 1st administration last may in 2016. I think it was too easy because everyone passed and finished within 45 mins that i spoke with..my exam was like verbatim of the nylc outline, and I crtl+f'ed most of it

I will not be taking off since I can sign my employment contract the moment I pass the bar. So once my Pro Bono Scholars program ends, I will start working for money... However, I do not think tonight is the night. My guess is THURS. BUT, I've been wrong 3 times already...

lets enjoy this moment. For those that pass, please stick around and show support to the retakers!!!!



I'll be around either way- deff will post in the J2017 thread if I pass and even meet up with people who are taking if they want since I have so much free time- there is no sarcasm in that sentence lol.



I just hope I don't fail by few points. i'd rather fail by more than 20 points if I do.
But I'll pass, no worries. (ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh)


I have failed 3 times, first time 4, second time 12, third time 9. I agree, rather fail by 20+. It would make me feel like it was too far anyways. Also, not sit there and analyze where I lost the point.


what did you do differently everytime?


To be honest there wasn't much I could do, the first time I did it right. I was working a moderate 40+ hour clerkship. I was finishing up a clerkship though so had to finish up a lot of opinions/settle in the new clerk. So I think my mistake that time was near the end I was trying to do too much! I should have taken that time off.

The second two times I was working a 75-90+ hour job doing plane rides and 4+ hour car trips from our offices in upstate NY to Pitt and Philly in PA where they had me appearing. I am shocked from how little I studied how close I was both times, if I am being honest. So there wasn't much technique to those times, crammed. I passed NJ one of those times though (took NY and NJ for the firm), that was bc my MBE was high though.

This time, I have a new employer, and I asked. I asked for the time. They couldn't give it all to me, but most of it. And I am eternally grateful. This time the difference wasn't just the time spent, but also this test is 50% confidence/a mind game. I think this time I had a different mind set. Also, it helped not going in thinking everyone has had months to study and I have had Saturday nights (bc I was expected to work weekends/travel on them for my next appearance) and some plane rides to.

I think if I had to say, if this went as well as it felt/I hope the difference was me not getting tunnel vision on one area. I kept the picture WIDE! It is easy to fall down the "MBE is 50%" rabbit hole. But as someone who once even scored 149 on the MBE scaled and STILL FAILED it shows you can kill any part, but it has to be a balance of it all. Because if not you are loosing points in those other areas by devoting most of your time to one. And then what you gained in one area, you lost in another.

But I am obviously NO pro. So take my advice with a grain of salt.
