I can't do it before the CBX, but I will send you mine from the July 2017 next week when I get back. Do you want my PT also? I received a 75/80 on first and second review.[/quote]
Mmmmmmmm Okay so now I'm in panic mode. You said you scored high on all essays and even a 75/80 on PT and still failed because of MBE. WHIch yes I understand is now worth 50% but FU>> ! I was hoping that if I got even 70s on essays that would somewhat help me make up for the fact that I can't get my mbe score up...but seriously if you dont mind me asking how bad you did on mbs? Like was it well below 50%? I was seriously PRAYING that If I passed all essays with 65s and praying for a 70/75 on PT that would help my mediocre mbe score and get me into pass range. BUT now I feel sick . . .[/quote]
Don't feel sick. I was looking through a lot of the close calls people have posted, and it looks like many have been in this boat. Your method is what I was hoping for also, and had I scored just a tad higher... I may have made it. After having several Bar Prep people review what I received it was the MBE that shot me in the foot. They were actually all surprised that I scored as high as I did on the essays, because the bar graders already have your MBE scores when they read your essays, and said that it was likely my essays weren't even given much thought because they knew I had failed due to the low MBE. My essay coach after reading my answers when I got them back echoed this response and felt that I should have had at least 5+ points on each from what I received. My MBE was 1280 and my written was 1580 which totaled 1430.35 -- There is a decimal behind one of the #'s but I don't remember which one, hence missing by 9.65 points.
I am sending you good vibes, and I hope you have great success on the test. I am actually not expecting to pass this time. Since getting my results back, I had life kick me in the ass on multiple occasions, and I think I may have studied 25 hours, since December 1, but I already paid for everything, and I even paid for an MBE bar prep class this time (which I hardly used) to boot. That being said, I figure I might as well go hard, since I'm not going home, and see where I land on the scale this time, so I know where to start to practice for the July, and hopefully my life will settle down by then and I will have a better opportunity to focus on the CBX.
Deep breath, don't freak out, it's a waste of energy that could be better spent doing something enjoyable.
