Congratulations to those who passed! I’ve still only received one email, but probably won’t check my results till I’m home. Got a bottle of champagne that I want to drink. No matter the results.

Not that nice, I’m still under law clerk pay, but something is something. Finally opened up my results and passed!

Congrats! That's a huge amount of self-control to have waited that long to open the email.

Congrats, that’s awesome!

Did they give any indication of how the MBE was scaled?

They don’t tell us our scores, but they did release the percentiles: https://www.ilbaradmissions.org/percent ... ruary-2019

Unfortunately, Illinois doesn't release passing scores, so no one is going to know their actual mbe score.

I used Themis and Critical Pass (barely used them though) and my simulated MBE was a 127. My two friends who also used Themis got a 104 and 125 on the simulated. We all passed our first time. The only person I know who didn't pass this round used Barbri, Emanuel Strategies & Tactics, and Critical Pass. I have no idea what his practice scores were though.

I have the same mbe practice score with barbri. Waiting for the NY results. Do you mind sharing your percentile? Thanks
