you can have one, for not being a self-righteous ass

Sprout-- don't let bar review stress get to you. The person who wrote the original message was relieved. The one note idea is pretty useful for future takers too. They didn't mean to sound self righteous. Got to give them a charitable reading.


Confused by this unnecessary comment too. Read above that you took it today too- hope you did well- no need to put down someone else? We can ALL pass? We're all looking to this forum for support so maybe we can just give that support accordingly or just say nothing anything at all.

Hope everyone passed! I took it in March thinking I 100% failed and didn't so don't stress. Results came out in a week as opposed to the 3 weeks (I think) they listed.


It's also really weird that of all the people that could have attacked that relatively benign post it would be her lol. I mean let's be honest, 90% of the posts on this bar prep forum are Sprout spewing garbage that is either whining, complaining, neurotically panicking, dramatically stressing, or a terrible combination of all of them. Seriously Sprout, you need to chill or you ain't gonna make it to exam day (let alone pass)

Maybe a tad rough but certainly not uncalled for. Hey if you can't take the heat don't dish it out (not you obviously)

Also the advice to chill was serious. I have a friend that I've joked with about this thread (neither of us post but we just follow it for info) and we always say that she has the best avatar. Reminds me so much of Rachel from early seasons of Friends lol

I imagine not incredibly important now so long as you're in the ballpark (off by 2-3). But, after around July 10 or so, I'd think hitting the goals is critical. But idk, I'm just as clueless as you lolz

Anyone have an idea about the rules on what we can take into the exam?

Thought I saw some crazy stuff like you can't take in a watch or wireless mouse and such things...

You can bring a watch it just has to be analog not digital and you can't wear it on your wrist, must be on the desk. I would recommend this esp. on mbe day as there might not be clocks in your testing center- there wasn't at the Albany convention center.

Tip- set the watch to 12 so it's easier to keep track

Keep calm sprout! You got this- good luck, i'm sure you passed the nyle and you'll pass the bar too! Everyone has diff. feelings regarding easy/hard, it's not indicative of anything!

I wasn't even gonna respond to this, but then when I saw you sent me a private message telling me to "go fuck myself" I figured I would defend myself. Look I was half kidding about you, but it is 100% true that you are super neurotic and highly negative. Both of those things are objectively BAD for your bar preparation. Based on everything I have seen you say on this forum over the last month or so leads me to say that if you continue down this current path, you will very likely fail the bar exam. I don't say that to be a dick like you believe, but to tell you that you really do need to lighten up. Bar study sucks for all of us, but you have over a month left. Stop freaking out constantly and stop being negative. Just keep chugging through the work and try to be positive and you will probably pass. But keep going with your current attitude and you most likely won't.

Guys, we're all scared we're going to fail this stupid thing. This negative vibe is not useful.
Here's two puppies getting along for inspiration.

lol, plz bro. If you weren't trying to be a dick, you'd respond in a dm. You wouldn't put her on blast on a public forum. If you wanna talk shit, go ahead. But let's not try to act like you're coming from some higher place of morality.

You lost any credibility or higher ground the moment you said 90% of the bar exam forum is one poster "spewing garbage" and whining about everything. Stop being a horrible person and just focus on your own studying rather than obsessing over Sprout's mental state.

Does anyone need a hotel for the Buffalo venue? I made a non-refundable reservation but now I'm no longer taking it there. Please PM me! It's at the Adam's Mark and it's really close (walking distance) from the venue.

Barbri said the same thing, and it worked!

I'm so nervous.
