Total Scaled Score: 1407

PT's sucked. I acknowledge that I didn't get on them like I wanted to before the last exam. It's on the top of my list for the next exam (again).

dude, you are so frieking close. can you smell THE ESQ title?!? keep truckin' and build momentum so that the bar examiners cannot test a single topic/issue/piece of law that you wont know inside out. btw, in 49 states you would already be licensed. a few more points and you will be in CALIFORNIA!

GP, this thread had some advice maybe you will find helpful: http://all4jds.com/tabid/262/aft/13287/Default.aspx

You need a Game Changer moment. Something you do differently that addresses your strengths and weaknesses with regard to this exam. I didn't pass a bar exam until I found my Game Changer, which for me was doing the Barwrite course (in NY). Suddenly things fell into place that simply hadn't been clear to me before. Hopefully you will find your moment soon. It does seem as though you are getting closer.

After taking a couple full bar reviews I self studied for a while and then happened upon the Barwrite course. Since you've been studying for a while, maybe getting a tutor or a finding a program (Flemings, Holz, etc) you havne't tried before might be a possibility?

Just throwing ideas out there. As always, keep persevering. Regards from a friend.

Dooder, you are damn close. What was the breakdown if you don't mind me asking?

COPIED.. So...So..Close!

The three-day General Bar Examination is given twice a year, in February and July. The exam consists of three sections: a multiple-choice Multistate Bar Examination (MBE), six essay questions and two performance tests that are designed to assess an applicant's ability to apply general legal knowledge to practical tasks. The mean scaled MBE score in California was 1413 compared with the national average of 1386.

In addition, the Committee announced that 172 (42.9 percent) of the 401 lawyers who took the Attorneys' Examination passed. Out of the total taking the Attorneys' Examination, 20 were disciplined lawyers who took the examination as a condition of reinstatement; four disciplined lawyers passed.
