Can I take MPRE and NYLE on the same day?

Post by abir.ahmed13 » Sun Feb 09, 2020 2:18 pm

I tried posting this earlier but not sure if it went through.

Is there a certain time frame on the day of the NYLE that you need to get it done? Or is it just before the end of the day?

If so, I'm considering taking both on the same day.

I don't think it is possible to do them both.

There is a given block of time when you can take and submit the NYLE test. My recollection is that it is the middle of the day (e.g., 12:00-2:00 or something along those lines), which is likely to overlap with the MPRE.

Echo the concern about timing, but if it’s logistically possible, it’s probably possible—it wouldn’t present too much of a problem as far as confusion or fatigue.

I don't know, I was pretty tired after the MPRE - I don't usually get up that early in the morning, and the whole elaborate check-in process transforms a test that's actually not that long into a solid half-day ordeal. I recall I didn't want to do anything substantive after - I just wanted to chill and relax. And the NYLE isn't hard, but it's not the joke it used to be either.

Assuming no logistical conflicts, it'd be possible to do both the same day, but that'd be a heckuva exhausting day, and I don't know that I'd recommend it.

I'm not sure if it's possible from a scheduling perspective, but I personally found both tests ridiculously easy. Have two computers handy when you do the NYLE so you can quickly google the answers*
For the MPRE, when in doubt, choose the second most ethical answer - the most ethical is usually too narrow

*I do not advocate cheating. If this is not permitted, don't do it.

I think computer assisted searches we’re prohibited although check the rule. If you’re concerned at all about the NYLE, I’d get to know the table of contents of the outline really well. I looked up literally every question. But I had time to and I found answers I was 100%sure of on all but one or two questions.

For the MPRE I’d actually study. I passed by plenty but was much less confident walking out of that than the bar. Most test companies give out their mpre prep as a free teaser for their bar prep materials, so it’s not hard to get materials for free. Do some of those and be fine; figure out how not to crash and you should be okay for the NYLE. Kinda crazy that they’d schedule them on the same day.

I know this is a late response but for future reference I took both in one day in the spring and found it very manageable. Took the MPRE early morning and the NYLE at noon and had plenty of time even given a half hour commute
