I have been getting slammed on the MEE. Using the Barbri self-scoring sheets I almost always get below passing if not well below passing, even when doing the essays open book. I am not trying to toot my own horn by saying this, but I did get above a 3.7 at a t14 and essays have always been my strong point, so I am pretty surprised. The problems have run the gamut too - from not identifying the right issue (or even the right body of law in one case - it was one of those essays with two subjects and I was under the assumption each essay only tested one topic) to misapplying the law (just did a Civ Pro essay with perfect rule statements but had the complete opposite analysis from the example answer). I really don't know what's up.....is this normal? Am I not studying right? I am just working through my Barbri personal study plan but to be honest it has been slow going and I have not seen much improvement yet.
