What are the biggest things you learned from the final exam? I didn't get a chance to do it and it's making me nervous how much emphasis Kaplan is putting on it.

How did your NCBE scores compare to your Kaplan scores? Mine were very similar, which is a little disappointing because I was hoping Kaplan was harder than the real thing.

21 questions is also a very small sample size compared to 1800 or so.

Mine were a bit higher but I was very slowed down by the answer choices because they are phrased a lot different (a little more nuanced) from the one Kaplan provided. Not to worry though, like you said, it's only 21 questions. Bet you won't get those answers wrong on Wednesday, so that's a plus.

Damn was not prepared for the essays today at all.

Is everyone just relaxing tonight? I haven't done MBE questions in like 3-4 days. Wondering if I should do a quick set or something

Can't do anything tonight, too tired. I'll probably go through the slides from the final if I feel like it later.
I'm just happy that the MEE is over and I was able to write down something. Completely bullshitted the civ pro/conflict and wills.

Maybe like a 10 question set just to refresh your mind on mbe questions, I would not go to hard.

As for the test. Feel good about the MPT and 3-4 of the essays. That mega wills question can fuck right off.

I'll do the sample questions from the NCBE, cause I haven't looked at them yet, but otherwise taking it easy.

I think my MPTs were good enough to balance out my totally made up secured transaction/conflicts MEEs and the other answers I half-assed when that that wills question zapped all my time.
