You could always ship Media Mail super cheap. Books/CDs/DVDs all can be shipped Media Mail. Do you happen to have your Barbri MPQ book?? I used to really like the MPQ questions. I have a feeling you are going to tell me to stick with Emanuel though! :lol:

What are you thinking re MEE topics? My guess would be:

1. CivPro (on 10 of last 12, and not included in F17. It's due)
2. Crim/Crim Pro/Evidence (one has been on 10 of last 12, and not included in F17)
3. ConLaw (hasn't been omitted for three straight exams since UBE started in F11 and J17 would make 3)
4. Agency/Partnership (this or Corps is on each year, and this would be three in a row for Corps)
5. Trusts (less confident here, though unusual for both this and Wills to have been omitted in J16. Having neither in J17, which would be 2 out of last 3, would be a historical oddity.)
6. Secured Trans (just a hunch)

Would be shocked to see Corporations, Contacts, Family Law, Choice of Law considering recent exams.

-We just had trusts in F2017 so I would guess J17 would be a pure wills Q, we also had agency and corps, so partnership is more "due" but the NCBE is always changing it up!

Hello July 2017 NY bar takers!

I took CA bar July 2016 and passed. The CA bar has the MBE component of the UBE, so I have all the barbri material I can use to restudy for the MBE.

Does anyone have any suggestion for study material for the MEE and MPT? I would prefer not to shell out thousands to BarBri, but I will if I have to. Thanks for your help.

For my school, we just send the forms to the Office of Records and Registration. You can probably just contact a similar official at your school to ask who you should send the documents to.

I agree that partnership is more "due" than agency, considering agency was on the last exam. There probably is a better chance for secured transactions over corps. If you have not had secured transactions, it takes some time getting to understand how it works, and the guy is who writes the blog about bs-ing essays has a pretty entertaining piece on ST.

I agree too that it's unlikely trusts will be tested in J17, especially since the question was difficult. Wills is a safer bet.

I think too it was a surprise that only 2 mbe subjects--contracts and property--were on the F17 MEE. I agree that Con Law and Civ Pro are due. But I suspect there will be at least one more, and maybe two more MBE subjects.

K two questions.
I am a little confused (what else is knew) do I just print this and physically bring it to the school for them to sign (certificate of attendance) and then I mail it in? Or I give it/forward it to the school and they do it?

If I am the one that sends it in, can I send it in with my handwriting sample or should they be sent separately?

Your school sends in the certificate not you. You just drop it off for them, fill out the top part, they do the bottom.
