How do you know which essay graders to trust and which scores to rely on? This is not to say everyone feels this way. Do they actually want to to write the word "issue" before discussing the issue, and rule before discussing the rule?
We have superior materials and instruction that dramatically increases your chances of passing the bar exam! There is a lack of accountability. BarBri told us in all seriousness, if you blank on an exam question, just makeup a rule and analyze according to your rule.
It is hard to memorize outlines that are super-lengthy e. The amount of essays and MPTs Barbri grades, we believe, varies by state. Further, there are ways to combat these disadvantages which many students are also not aware of and which we explain above.
Memorize the outline and move on. While some students are not bothered by this, for others it can be fatal to a passing bar exam score. Even if your lecture is live, the professors do not, to our knowledge, allow students to ask questions during lecture.
If you got over a on the MBE, keep that score and spend all your studying for the essays, especially the ones that you are most certain to see family law, civil procedure, etc. I advise all of my students grade their own essays during bar exam preparation because of the enormous benefits it has.
Barbri does not grade a lot of essays and MPTs. Get into the habit of evaluating how your studying is going early. Instead of focusing on the number and instead of taking the feedback as a statement of how you write or how well you know the information, look at it as data that you really may be able to use.
Looking to take something other than Barbri? When you compare your answer to the model answer, do not just read the model answer and then move on.The practice essay questions found in the Barbri essay book were comparable to the actual questions on test day.
In fact, one of my essay questions on test day was almost identical to. BarBri intentionally grades your essays lower so as to put the fear of God in you, which in turn motivates you to study that much harder.
Which in turn causes BarBri customers' bar passage rates to go up. Work hard, but be aware of this business practice. I wrote a fairly cogent Civ Pro essay but missed one or two subsidiary issues. Note that this is not to say that you should not give essays to Barbri or Kaplan to grade.
Nor is it to say that you should completely ignore feedback from Babri or Kaplan graders (See Approach #2 below, where we advise just the opposite!). Barbri tell them to grade harder than the bar, where 65 in barbri is probably a 70/75 on actual bar.
You need a 65 average to pass. I've noticed in my graded essays. The other number is your Written Scale Score, which is the combination of your essays and your MPT. The essays make up two-thirds of this score and the MPT makes up one-third.
This score is scaled according to the MBE distribution. And, if after all of that, you want additional essays graded, you can simply work with a BARBRI Director, like me, to get personal, help, all free of charge! FACT 2: You can do % of the BARBRI course online but we won’t force you.
