My goal in life,
After the bar exam next week and a quick trip to Toronto, is to re-read every book on my shelves and watch every DVD I've purchased and not watched yet. How I look forward to it!!!

2. Bueno suerte.
Which one you taking? Since you said "Quick Trip" to Toronta, I'm guessing NY?

3. Nope, Texas
Flying there from Dallas just for the weekend to visit my husband's niece and her mother, his sister-in-law, who's visiting from Pakistan.

4. Few questions for you.
Did you take Bar Bri?
How long is the test, how many days?
Essays?

I only ask because I took mine last year and am curious about other states' exams.

5. Yes, I did Barbri. Didn't do PMBR, although I have the books and CDs.
Texas exam is 3 days (how lovely). Tuesday I have a 90-minute Texas Crim Pro/Civ Pro/Evidence exam (45 minutes for each section; 20 questions each with 5 lines for short answers). Wednesday is the MBE. Thursday I have (the joy is unimaginable) TWELVE Texas essays.

Where'd you take yours?

7. Holy Hell, 12 essays huh?
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 04:35 PM by WeRQ4U
I went to a law school in Oregon, but took the North Dakota bar (that's where my judicial clerkship is, don't ask)

I had a two day test. First day MBE. Second day was 6 essay questions. Each day took about 8 hours including luches and stuff.

I studied on my own, however, through a PLI study course.

Glad that's over.

10. Oh shit, I forgot about that part.
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO utterly worthless.

We had that on the same day as our essay tests.

My father has corrected bar exams for going on 20 years now and he said that correcting those is just a shitstorm. You can't really answer them in a specific manner.
