withdrawing from bar exam

Postby caitlin1016 » Thu Jun 20, 2019 3:24 am

It actually kills me to say this but I have to withdraw from the July 2019 California bar exam because of family issues...
I'm assuming my California character and fitness app will still be processed? But if I'm wrong lemme know
What do I need to do to go about this and still be able to take February? I know I won't get a refund at this point.
Thanks.

Unless your family issues prevent you from physically taking the exam on those two days, consider taking it as a practice exam. The exam costs are already “sunk” so you Can maximize the return on those cost by sitting for it. You will learn the logistics of the exam, experience how you react to the pressure, practice 5 essays, 1 PT, and 200 real MBE questions, all under timed conditions for less than a bar prep program. Taking it as a practice exam will free your mind of the fear of failing, releasing the knowledge you gained in law school, and you just might pass. In addition, July takers get a bump on their written scores from the usually higher mean MBE score.

Wishing you well...

+1 Nothing is better than real experience. Only you will know to react to bar conditions.

Take the test. You can't get the money back at this point.
