JD Advising/MEE Seminar

Postby rkreymer » Sat Jan 13, 2018 9:47 pm

Is it a good idea? Is it worth it?
It's approximately two weeks prior to the bar exam and it goes over the highly-tested areas of law as well as predictions for which topics will be coming up. TIA

I did this before the February 2017 UBE. I was working full time and taking the UBE for the first time and was anxious about learning all of the new essay topics. While it wasn't cheap by any means, it was very helpful. I had attempted to review all of the topics at least briefly before the seminar so I has a background in them because the seminar doesn't teach you the BLL of every subject. It shows patterns and predictions of essay and sub essay topics. The handout they mail you beforehand is really well done. It's written in plain English and color coded so that you can make strategic decisions on which areas to focus with limited study time left. I emailed follow up questions after the seminar and the instructor got back to me quickly. I found it very helpful overall and the predictions were really strong. Of course you can't solely rely on predictions but if a company is going to analyze decades' worth of material, it's obviously more thorough than any of us can do.

Thanks, I also think it's a good review, if anything else, before the exam.

Did the handout contain more BLL than the One Sheets?

Hi did you take the MBE seminar by any chance? I am a repeater, and would love to know. Thanks!

I didn't buy the company's one sheets, so I'm not sure. I'd assume that it's a bit more thorough within the particular topics and sub topics because they're predicting those as the highly tested areas. It definitely can't be used as a substitute to learn the BLL, but what it did cover was thorough enough to answer a question in full.

I didn't. I self studied and used Emanuel's, Critical Pass, and Adaptibar for MBE practice. That was enough for me.

Bummer that it's full. I used the Rigos MEE book. I highly recommend it. I read it cover to cover and felt I had enough info on each of the subjects to at least get some points on every question posed. The 2018 version is about $90 with Amazon Prime.

Thanks! The JD Advising says that the seminar is full, but I clicked on “purchase” and purchased.

Hey, no I didn't fail the February 2017 UBE. I just keep monitoring these forums sometimes because my boyfriend is taking the February 2018 UBE. I passed with a comfortable margin. The MEE seminer was good for me. I self-studied and it helped me feel a bit more at ease and give me a chance to ask an expert some questions. Good luck!
