We took a 100 question simulated MBE (multistate bar exam - which is day 1 of the bar) today. The actual test will consist of 200 questions over 6 hours.
I achieved outstanding marks of 40%! :(
Essentially, my scores revealed that I will not be able to recognize ANY of my constitutional rights if I were to ever, say, engage in sodomy in a tent on a public park. Nor will I be able to explain comparative liability if my client were to build a buck costume to hunt in (don’t do this. bad things will happen).
So, alright, Barbri. Do yo thang. Work yo magic.
MBE Fact of the Day: Your fundamental rights are the right to interstate travel, privacy, voting, and First Amendment rights (religion, speech, press, assembly), and the applicable standard is strict scrutiny. Government action must be necessary to protect a compelling government interest with no less restrictive means to reach this goal.
Friends were in town, parents were in town, lots of food and good times (relatively, but I’ll get into that some other time)
and without further ado… BARBRI.
BarBri is the 6 week bar prep review to make you realize you’ve retained nothing of what you’ve learned in the last 3 years. Today was the 3rd day and we’ve taken 25 practice problems in each of the 6 multi-state bar subjects. The highest I’ve scored is 16 in Criminal Law & Procedure, and I didn’t even take CrimPro! And… the lowest was in Evidence at 9 out of 25, a class I did take. :(
And for the first time since high school, I have a 9-3 Monday through Friday schedule. Whew!
So far the only bright side is that one of the BarBri professors is Bob Saget*.
*OK, so it’s not really Bob Saget. Sorry folks.
Oh, if you’re wondering about the title to this post, it’s referring to one of Bob Saget’s stories, but I couldn’t find a way to spin it to make it less nerdy, so… here’s a picture of a whale with a harpoon in it.
