Bar Review Update

It's JULY! As my husband, the person who is NOT taking the bar exam this month, so graciously reminded me, the bar exam is just a few weeks away.

We've covered the big 6 topics that will be on the multiple choice, though my comprehension of all of the material is sketchy at best. I'm hopefully on the Massachusetts distinctions, and I haven't really touched essays, other than to walk out halfway through a mock essay exam this morning, because I simply didn't know the rules. Wow, what the hell have I been doing with my time?

I've spent a great deal of time on multiple choice questions, which are the anchor of the bar exam. Tomorrow I'll go to the actual bar testing site and take a 200 questions mock exam to see how I'm doing. Should be interesting.

I'm taking Saturday and Sunday off of studying. It's a holiday weekend, I've got unpacking to do, and I need to set up my Bar Exam HQ so come Monday, I can put my head down and look up in 4 weeks to find that the test is over.

My friend Andi and I were assuring each other last night that only 10% of first time takers in Massachusetts fail, and we could name 10/100 people we think should fail, which didn't include us. Catty, but hopeful.

So, other than one picnic to go to on Bastille Day, I am OUT for get-togethers for the rest of July. I hope all your events without me go well and that everyone pauses for a moment of silence to mourn my situation.

I feel honored that you are giving up precious study time tomorrow so that Andy and I can see your new house and be in your presence.
