Yes, I haven't posted in quite a while. Oops.
The results (released 4-30-10) from the February 2010 DC exam were pretty brutal:
92 successful out of 224 applicants. 61% pass rate for first-time takers and an overall pass rate of just 41%. Ouch!
As usual, congrats to all those that passed. Special congrats to the repeaters that finally kicked that b*tch in the teeth! For those that took it on the chin, stick with it, redouble your efforts the next attempt and knock it out of the park.
The other day, someone asked me to make another set of predictions for the July DC bar exam. I decline. I don't have the mental energy to do it. Really, my predictions are worthless.
Look at my predictions from last fall for the February 2010 DC bar exam.
Then look at what one of the commenters reported for the Feb 2010 topics:
1. argument section for motion to suppress & motion to dismiss
2. letter to arbitrator setting forth strengths and weaknesses of your case.
1. property (easements)
2. family law (divorce/property distribution)
3. torts (respondeat superior)
4. federal jurisdiction/choice of law
5. corporations (shareholders rights)
6. evidence (character evidence)
Then come up with your own predictions. B@r Bri (or whatever review course you are taking) should be in full swing. Keep at it. Get your schedule in place, buckle down with a good study partner or two and make sure you get enough rest and keep your body hydrated and exercised.
