So I finally got around to printing out the application update form from Colorado’s website to register for the July 2007 bar exam. Why do I feel like I’m signing my own death warrant as I fill out this application?
A close friend advised me to drink while doing this form, but I already drank all the alcohol we had last week after the bar results, and I’m not desperate enough to dip into the Windex… yet.
I’ve been reading several blogs about bar re-takers’ MBE strategies, and the most common one seems to be write out the explanations for each incorrect MBE practice question. I think that’s a good idea, so I’ll break out a yellow legal pad and write the rules down on the pad every time I get a wrong answer. Hopefully that helps.
Someone told me about a tutor in Colorado who specializes in re-takers. I told her I didn’t want a tutor for the essay/MPT portion since I’m all set on those, I just need to get my MBE score back to what it was the first time around at the very least! I wish Colorado would let people re-take portions of the bar exam instead of the whole thing. Some states, like Florida let you do that if you passed one part of the bar exam but failed the other part. That would be nice to be able to keep my essay/MPT score and only take the MBE in July. I’ll probably e-mail the tutor and ask about how I can improve my MBE score. I’ve always sucked at multiple choice questions, period.
