Passed Texas! :D

Used Barbri all the way! Nothing else. Completed around 83%...honestly don't feel 100% is humanly possible if you follow it to the tees..

Barbri Simulated Exam - 120/200 - BUT Blew away in timing (first session blew time by 20 mins and second session by 5 or 8 mins).
Barbri Final - only did 50 questions the night before...don't do that! it's very misleading...I think I only got like 23 correct and almost puked.
Actual MBE Scaled - 147.6

PS. I am a foreign trained attorney and this was my second attempt (first was Feb2016). Left the MBE without any clues as to how I did and used ALL the time allowed to the seconds.

Is it safe to say that everyone who took barbri is getting like a 18-20 point bump?

Themis Final: 147/200 (73.5%)
MBE: 158.1

I took the two halves of the Themis final on different days, so that's probably a bit inflated. I also focused on essays for the last 10-12 days and hardly did any MBE stuff, so my MBE score is probably a bit lower than it could have been due to rust.

unfortunately, missed it by 3 points :( .. the good thing I know I can do it next time.. My issue was the MPT Texas bar taker .. did Kaplan 113/200 final score and got 134 on real MBE ..
so Kaplan score was very accurate, Chris said expect 20 point and I got 21 extra points. my essays were 138 but I got Zero/6 on the MPT ..

CA results come out in 16 hours. I'm praying to all the deities that things go my way. The fact that CA has the lowest pass rate in the country is not very reassuring. I know everyone on here gets a 20 point bump but I hope that happens to me too.

Midterm PT: 134/200 (67%)
Final PT: 81/100

I was very calm and collected during the final PT, but pretty jittery during the PM session of the real MBE. I genuinely think I guessed/freaked out on 60 of the 100 questions.

I thought I'd share that I passed in CA. Thank you to everyone who shared information in this thread, it eased some of my anxiety waiting for results to come out. Joe Seperac's prediction calculator had me failing by hundreds of points on the bar due to my 89 MPRE score (which I barely studied for) and 2.7 law school GPA. I wanted to share that law school grades have NO BEARING on your ability to pass the bar exam. Don't let things like that bring you down. Once you graduate, it's a clean slate. Work your ass off, study effectively, and things will likely go your way.

A 150+ MBE score is something to be proud of. That's significantly higher than the national average, and would have made you eligible to waive into DC, N. Dakota, and Minnesota. It's something you can build on if you need to re-take your state's exam.
