Not exactly

AS it turns out I wasn't actually that close. My visitor Steve had it absolutely correct, I have to revisit my writing technique. I scored 1350. Not even close.

I did, however, score a 1474 on the mbe, or a raw 137, which is a clear passing score for the mbe. Considering I had an entire half hour extra on the morning and afternoon session of the mbe, I should be able to pull that off again if I don't get cocky.

There are four options here

1. Essay advantage with Jeff Adachi
2. The writing edge with Vivian Dempsey
3. Bar Code with Whitney Roberts.

All concentrate solely on the writing, and that is where I need to pick up the points.

Ouch. I can't wait to see how these jackholes graded me. If there was ever an example of how arbitrary the grading is on this test, this is going to be it. I can almost smell the two points I failed by.

I failed

I thought I would go ahead and get this out there ahead of time so I wouldn't have to write it later. It's actually five days before the results come out, but there won't be much doubt that afterward I will be incommunicado. For those of you who know me, and wish to confirm my defeat, you can check the bar website. For those of you who don't, the awkward silence will speak to you.

I honestly don't know what else I could have done, but after reading the comments from so many people, I've come to realize a lot of it is luck. If one in ten HLS grads can get shot down, the rest of us lowly types are far more vulnerable.

So anyway, if I'm wrong, you will be hearing from me....if not....
