That was fun, wasn't it?
The only thing that didn't surprise me was the full PR essay. But it was a little tougher than I expected. The first call was clear enough but the second one had me wondering how much they thought we could get out of that narrow area. Then again, maybe it just looked narrow to me!
I sure wasn't expecting that third essay. The first one either, for that matter. I don't know why I thought that though. There's no reason to think they have any sort of plan or schedule for these things.
I'm being vague regarding the subjects on purpose. Some people thought I might have jumped the gun in July because when I posted my recap there apparently were some people who had yet to take the first day's test. I don't think the same situation exists this time, but I'm not in a big hurry to rehash those things yet anyway. At least, no more than I already have with my study buddy.
I didn't think the PT was that much more difficult than most. Those things are never easy. I did think the task memo was funny though. It was very specific about what they didn't want you to do.
Odd, that was.
Overall, because I worked on PTs this time around, I think I'm marginally better off than I was in July. But having said that, I'm sure I've now pissed off the bar exam gods and tomorrow is going be a disaster.
Golf is like that too. When you birdie the first hole you just know that the rest of your day is going to be bad. Those golf gods don't like to be shown up on the very first hole. A par is okay, bogie is better, but if you get a birdie right out of the gate you're just asking for it. (;-)>
My own personal predictions for Thursday?
Civ Pro for sure; smj, ipj, rj & ce, maybe joinder & sj.
Corps, 10b & 16b, w/agency.
ConLaw, ep, dp, dormant commerce.
If it's not one of those, look for CA evidence.
Again, those are my own personal guesses and are based on nothing more than fear. (;-)>
Good luck tomorrow!
