Barring some kind of unexpected emergency (knock on my wooden head) I believe I've gotten the last medical appointment out of the way until after the exam. Unfortunately, it took up most of my day.
I did manage to get my assigned BarBri Torts essay in to be graded. Then I checked out the score sheet they use, and it looks like the term "graded" is not quite an accurate description of what's going to happen to it. They assign different rankings to the different elements of the answer. The rankings are "Above Average", "Pass" and "Fail" for each of the four elements, which include "Issue Spotting", "Rule Statements", "Analysis", and "Organizational Format".
Fair enough, I suppose. As long as the "rankings" are realistic. One of my main complaints during school was that I could never get a feel for whether the scores we received on our essays were even remotely in line with what we might expect to receive if it were graded by a Bar examiner. I suppose that was a good thing too. Now that I'm here, I don't even want to look at some of the stuff I turned in during my first and second year.
Anyway, I'm kind of anxious to see what they say about this effort.
