Barbri Midterm: 125
Barbri completion: <60%
Did not take essay practice exam or refresher

Actual MBE: 158.9
Total UBE score: 324

Only posting because I feel very strongly about Barbri. If your firm is paying for your bar prep course, you can do barbri because their outlines are *decent* (not amazing because they are super long and have a few mistakes). Otherwise, DO NOT BOTHER. Barbri is infuriatingly inefficient. They overwhelm you from mid-may for NO REASON. 90% of the ultra-complicated BS they had us study and lose sleep over didn't show up. The Barbri questions are way too long and complicated compared to the real thing. I fell behind early on and never caught up because the amount of work they had us do every day was completely unrealistic. I felt like I wasn't learning anything until I just quit barbri and went rogue. The only thing that worked for me was condensing my barbri class notes into 15-20 page outlines then studying those + doing 25-50 practice questions every day. I basically had those outlines on rotation where each day I studied 2-3. I didn't even crack open the CMR for some of the subjects, and definitely didn't open the long outline for anything.

If you can find someone who is willing to send you their barbri class notes, don't even bother watching the lectures. Just study the class notes and do practice questions. I'm happy to share my outlines if you PM me (I don't have property and torts because my computer crashed and I lost some docs)

Not sure if this is still helpful.

Barbari Midterm: 139
No refresher or any real additional prep.
MBE scaled score: 162


I completed maybe 65-70% of the program and I was positive I was going to fail. But I passed.

Themis Midterm: 118/200
Themis Final: 62/100
Actual MBE: 142.2
Total UBE: 282

Rough start with Themis, but ultimately scored on average between 65-70% on timed mixed sets later in the course. I practiced on a couple of sets released by NCBE, but other than that, it was only Themis the entire summer, virtually completing 100% of the course.

Congrats to everyone who passed!!!

"If you can find someone who is willing to send you their barbri class notes, don't even bother watching the lectures. Just study the class notes and do practice questions."

Exactly my thoughts. Watching the lectures to fill in blank spaces is just waste of time.

Passed

Barbri Midterm: 105
Barbri Refresher: 66/100
MBE:150

The barbri midterm really says nothing about how well you'll do imo, i didn't have time by the midterm to do 1/2 of the memorization needed to actually take the bar.

Kaplan raw midterm: 144
Kaplan raw final: 150

Actual MBE: 158

Total GA bar score: 290

I knew my essay writing is generally not great so focused a lot on the MBE, and it helps that GA is a 50/50 state so any MBE over 150 would pretty much autopass me.

I think there are two big takeaways from everything that I've seen posted on the site about practice exams and the real MBE. 1) You probably will score much better on the real thing than the practice exams. 2) You probably will leave the test thinking you did worse than on the practice exams.

So people who read this thread in the future, take comfort on both ends.

Themis Final: 127/200

I also was averaging about 74% at the end on the mixed-subject tests.


Real MBE: 155

Felt like I COMPLETELY botched it after walking out.
