Agreed. Don't mean to be inflammatory in any way but I was lurking here during Feb post-exam waiting period and the questions and issues were heavily discussed in detail by users who now seem to be opposed to discussion. Everyone here is familiar with the rules and grown enough to make a choice to abide by then or break them and face the consequences. No need to suddenly be on police mode. It sucks for everyone and we all need an outlet. Chill.

Is it weird if I feel shitty about the essays but also feel okay because at least I IRAC'd my BS answers?

Like I should probably feel worse, but part of my brain wants me to think "But you finished your answers and IRAC'd everything, so you're good."

You're not supposed to discuss exam answers. Also, lol at the whole "[i]t's annoying and condescending to tell others not to talk." Yeah, rules are tough. Wouldn't it suck if we were in a profession subject to dozens of arbitrary rules? Oh wait. Special mention to that asinine "no labels on water bottles" bs.

Today was about as terrible as expected (in no small part because of the neurotic law students freaking out / comparing horribles after the MEE). One more day and we're done, people!

I'm glad we're following the BOLE/NCBE rules because if you look at previous threads, there were definitely discussions about specific issues.

I'm just glad we didn't open the first page to 5 questions about LLCs like they had to last July. Good old torts was at least a steady way to start imo.

I mean, that's sort of how we've been programmed by the prep companies and what a countless number of people I know who took the test said to me.

I hate my table partner. He's a big surly grump during the breaks and during the test he's like furiously flipping back and forth through the pages non-stop and making wild and overdramatic movements.

Yeah I'm sure as long as you make up something that looks like a rule, and apply the facts to that rule, you'll get a bunch of points. Been told that dozens of time too.

Heh that actually sounds a bit like me. Unfortunately the way some of us deal with stress is to shut everything else out. The guy is probably a very nice person normally lol.

You can try using your phone as a personal hotspot. Wifi at my hotel is shit and that's what I'm doing.

Good luck tomorrow, everyone! If you didn't feel so hot about today, remember that AUTOPASS is still a thing.

Yeah I just remember a CA taker who posted about double time but didn't remember anyone for NY. If nothing else, the bar forum is searchable so someone could find this by Googling it. Better safe than sorry as far as BOLE/TLS rules go!

You can still do great on the MBE today. And as long as you wrote something, don't count yourself out on the essays! We believe in you.

Most first-time takers end up passing - even if it felt rough, the odds are in out favor!

Just so happy to be DONE (assuming I passed)
