did you guys cite cases in your mpt?
"using citations"



I did. I used "Id." in both.


Haha same. It had been so long since I've done actual legal writing though, it felt slightly uncomfortable. I did fine on MPTs in my last bar, it was the MBE that mostly brought me down.


Yea, I cited the cases they gave us. <3 xoxo <3

I don't know how bad I did with my mpt.........
i used "discussion" section for mpt 2.
My mpt 1 was horrible..................professionalism was tougher than I expected. I focused on cases and the opinions,,,so hopefully i'm ok

That is cruel and at this particular moment of my life, in my mind, the meanest thing you could ever do to someone.

I did what Kaplan told me, just the cases name, not a full cite. The instructions did not call for more, and they said that was the default. As for the second one, no cites, because instructions said not to. The fictional paralegal was going to do it! haha

Same. That second one was so bizarre. I mean, I followed the instructions and didn't include anything I wasn't supposed to, but I am curious how I came out on that one.

RIGHT? I actually finished it early so went back on the other a little. It seemed, especially from the sample they used, they wanted it concise and clean. Not a long thing. Also, it was more about following instruction then content. But what do I know?! haha!

I didn't understand the second mpt.
it only required facts and the rules. It felt weird so I made the discussion section to talk about application.
the guy next to me didn't do that. just facts and rules.. i think he said he listed like 30.
In my head I'm thinking...where do you put the application?
