I felt the same but I have 9 points drop in my score.


How do you know your MBE score already? Did you also take it in another jurisdiction


Yep.


Do you mind sharing your MBE score with us?

Those are extremely impressive numbers! Do you believe that the drop is attributed to focusing more of your study time on the essays/MPT?

No, I didn't spend too much time on MEE/MPT. I blame 25. Like I said more experimental question makes it harder to score high, but it also makes it harder to score low. It is the trick NCBE use trying to boost median score.

Gotcha. That certainly seems unfair to F17 takers who are banking on a high MBE to boost their score. Damn NCBE...

Well, if you're aware of your strengths and weaknesses, you should be able to know the areas which give you a higher likelihood of success

AHH yes BUT you also have to be careful to nurture all areas. Myself included have gotten caught up in %s of things and focused on areas over other areas and felt the effects. It is a tricky game to play. Best thing is to let a bar course navigate your commitment to time in areas. My humble opinion.

I completely agree. However, I bombed the J16 MPTs, so I felt obligated to pay a bit more attention to that area of the test while studying this time around. Of course, that doesn't mean that I neglected my other areas of study.

Thank you, though. This is solid advice for someone who's studying for the bar for the first time!

Ugh, I'm so exhausted. I wish I had a g/f so badly today so I could just go home, cook dinner, drink some wine, and snuggle all night watching Netflix and waiting. Instead, all by myself....no snuggin.... :cry:

I'm the opposite in terms of affection, I feel so bad for my fiance. I'm like, DON'T TOUCH ME! You're too close to me right now! And then I go grab one of the pugs and just squeeze them.

Starbucks playlist is questionable AF, like what are these songs? Jazz meets elevator music meets the 90s?
