Re: July 2018 California Bar Exam

I want to move to a district with the Consent to Fight rule. Sure enough, there was a consent to fight question. LOL So far, I haven't spoken to anyone who's ever heard of this. I did a quick google search and apparently it is a thing in some states. But my top result yielded a Canadian law on it. ...

I know a guy in that neighborhood. Once his hand got sucked in a ‘98 landmower. You know, the ones without the protective screen. Apparently he is rich now.

Same here. They sent us a reminder email to print our ticket, which we can't print. I really wonder what kind of childhood these people had.

Re: July 2018 California Bar Exam

We have a lot in common lol. I’m actually amazed about the fact that not as many people as I expected express their anger about the CA bar/NCBE sadism. And I was still hoping for a decrease in the cut score. Sigh. I felt much more comfortable pointing out the bullshit of the CBE after it was reveal...

Re: July 2018 California Bar Exam

How nuts would it be to not study future estates? I just haven’t thus far and feel like rolling the dice considering the risk reward of it all. In the last 3 bar exams I don’t recall running into them at all. Not even a single MBE question (maybe just life estates). Now I basically know life estate...

Re: July 2018 California Bar Exam

...They have the February bloodbath and then follow it up with something less awful in July. Then they can say, "See! Scores improved by 22%!", while no longer counting the people who don't finish the exam. The disingenuous of the Committee of Bar Examiners is galling. Bah, whatever. Once we pass, ...

Re: July 2018 California Bar Exam

[...] I do expect more traditional types of essays this time. I can't say why, but I just do. It seems like the July essays get less batshit than the February ones. Probably because they need to bash on those "lazy february low-tier repeaters" to show that the bar exam is not becomign more difficul...

Weird Q but I've never used Examplify before. Does the alarm feature work during the exam? I don't know. I just bring a watch and practice that way.

Re: July 2018 California Bar Exam

Absolutely agree with it! I usually even start the conclusory sentence and leave it at the bottom. That’s the cherry on top for being responsive. Together with the beginning of the PT it’s probably the easiest point-awarding part of the PT.

Re: July 2018 California Bar Exam

Of course, we are all on the same boat! And I seriously doubt that between 50% and 70% of the people who apply for the CA Bar (who will fail) aren't smart. Anyway, I agree with the PT strategy. It's basically an IRAC where the issue is what they ask you in the task memo, rule from the library, analy...

Interesting read. I definitely agree with a lot of what the author wrote. No, seriously.
