    well, today was my initiation. it felt big while i was going - "this is the path that i will be taking ALL summer. this is the building i'll be walking in ALL summer. this is the elevator i will be riding ALL summer."

    the review course was surprisingly painless. it was mostly 5 hours and the dude on the t.v. was pretty entertaining. whatever sound system they use is pretty realistic, b/c there were times that I was tempted to raise my hand as jotting down notes to ask for clarification. i thought i was a freak until a few others said the same during the break.

    i got to see a couple of people from summer firm, which was nice, and there were a good # of people from my school (which is unusual, in a town with, uh, at least 6 law schools).

    i am taking professional responsibility right now, and my professor spends a lot of time on which Rule says what. i've been making an outline of the Rules that do involve the Rule #.

    Waste of time. I don't need to know that Rule 1.13 says (who the hell knows). i just need to know that i can't do (who the hell knows). That made it seem MUCH EASIER than i thought it would. pfft. it will be a piece of cake.

      The MPRE was surprisingly harder than I had expected it to be but not overwhelmingly so. I think it's good to approach it like mini-bar review, and you'll kick butt.

      Good luck -- and I hope you feel better soon!

      I'm going to take all the practice exams, and then I have my Professional Responsibility final exam on the 1st, which is 3 days before the MPRE, so hopefully I will be prepared. If I fail, i will just DIE of embarassment.

      Nobody really fails the MPRE unless they're ... well ... illiterate monkeys on hallucinogens.

      The scores range from (I think) 50-150 and most states only require 85-100. In most states you can get half of them wrong and still pass.

      One bit of advise though, don't confuse personal ethics with legal ethics (it can be hard to distinguish between the two).
