The format is as follows: 2 90-minute sessions on day 1 the firs,t of which is an MPT, and the second, three separate MEE essay exams. Day 2 will feature 2 90-minute sessions, each with 50 MBE multiple choice questions.
So, as it stands, we've got about a month and a half until exam day, and I am curious as to how best to spend my remaining time, given that I am already somewhat behind and don't yet have a solid grasp of many of the concepts in the seven MBE subjects.
I welcome any input/ prediction as to how many of the three MEE essays are likely to be on topics that fall outside of the MBE subjects (i.e. Agency, Trusts & Estates, etc.) In the event that at least two out of three of the essays are on MBE subjects, it seems like an increase in time spent memorizing MBE material would be beneficial, since this makes up the bulk of the graded exam. However, I wonder whether the fact that we now only have three MEE essays bears significantly on the likelihood of 2/3 or 3/3 being on topics outside of the MBE...
Perhaps this is kind of an impossible query, since this is a totally novel exam. But if there are any bar exam aficionados or strong prognosticators here, please feel free to weigh in!
I wish nothing but the best to all who are studying for upcoming bar exams. Keep grinding, you got this!!

I'm curious about hybrid MEE questions - I read that sometimes the essays combine issues related to MBE subjects with the other MEE subjects. So for instance, you might have a Con law essay that has an agency issue, for example.
Anyone have any insight on this?

Employee works as a delivery driver for Employer. Employee is driving on their delivery route one day and sees a friend sitting at a coffee stop. Employee stops their delivery truck in the middle of the street and gets out to have a friendly chat with friend. Driver runs into the delivery truck and suffers injuries. Driver sues Employer.Anonymous User wrote: ↑Tue Aug 25, 2020 11:33 amI'm curious about hybrid MEE questions - I read that sometimes the essays combine issues related to MBE subjects with the other MEE subjects.

Q: Will Driver succeed in their tort claim against Employer?
The rule is that employers are liable for the torts of their employees while acting within the scope of duty. The rules for what constitutes acts within the scope of duty is under the law of agency. In order to fully analyze whether the employer is liable for the negligence of the employee, you'd have to apply some agency law.
That's a simple example. I know that you asked about Con. and agency, but that's a somewhat unusual combination and harder to think of a hypothetical for.
