Get This MPRE-Party Started

I have the Bar/Bri outline. I will read 30 pages of it at some point. But I'm starting to see people reading it around the library. SOMEONE brought it with him to the Clever Steamboats 22-0 rout tonight. What gives? I thought you only need like 3 days of studying to pass. Should I miss the Shakedown this week? It is this week isn't it? I'm not going to make an ass of myself again.

Also, good luck to any Boalties retaking the Bar today and tomorrow. And a special good luck to a certain former 3L who's taking it for the first time.

Not studying at all would be a mistake. But 3 days should be enough.

I think it depends on how familiar you were with the rules to begin with (whether you did the take home for ethics so you had to learn them or instead wrote a paper for instance). You should definitely go to the review session that Bar/Bri offers. Other than that, maybe some studying and multiple choice questions. Three days strikes me as excessive unless you haven't read the rules before.

I did two 4-hour days, skipped the review session and felt very rushed having not looked at the rules in over a year. All that being said, I did pass, but I would recommend more than two days. Probably 4 medium study days would be enough. Any more and you're just torturing yourself since the test itself is ridiculous.

More than two days? Are you high? More than two hours, yes. More than two days? Save yourself the hassle. Read the short outline in the BarBri materials, go to the review session. Do a few practice tests. No prior experience with the code necessary. The test will feel arbitrary and maybe you won't be the first person to put the pencil down when finishing the exam, but you'd be shocked at how little preparation it takes to score significantly higher than the required minimum.

I took my BarBri outline to the beach today and even managed to get a very nice tan! God, I love Florida! Good luck, Armen!

The MPRE is easy and if you fail it, you can take it again for $55. It is pretty much the lowest stakes test ever. If you take the BarBri class that should be enough. If you want to practice in Utah (which requires the highest score), perhaps you should put in an additional half day.
