I was going to just do printer paper because I'm cheap and lazy

How will they know how professionally responsible you are from that? I went with full-on glamour shots. They gave me grief for the 2x2 format, but it was worth it. I appear both exceedingly professional and unquestionably responsible. I think they might let me skip the exam part.

Lol Jesus christ what a clusterfuck that was. Here's to hoping the random guessing was partially accurate.

They did not let me skip it due to my classy, professional, and responsible headshot. If 40 of the questions were unscored and experimental, I think I have a chance.

Y'all did fine. I'm pretty sure the MPRE is structured with the purpose of making 99% passing testers convinced that they failed miserably. It's like A Christmas Carol: make you feel career-endingly unethical so that when you end up passing you're so relieved that you promise keep the spirit of the MPRE in your heart forever, and to live a long and ethical life from that day forward.

My PR class was the only time I've felt even mildly ethical.

Kinda makes me feel the opposite. The exam is structured to make it seem like you just need to jump through these hoops and you can do whatever you want.

I've never walked out of a test not knowing whether I feel good or bad until Saturday.

Anybody else feel like 3LOL is kind of a flame? Drowning in graduation requirements over here.


I should have taken care of my major writing requirement last year.

Eh. At NU the writing classes that fulfill graduation reqs are also the 3LOL classes without curves so...can't sympathize with you there.

For each essay it's 7000 words. Not sure if that's long or short but there it is.
