it helped that the NJ bar is not too difficult.  the girl next to me in the NJ exam had just taken the Delaware exam (a three-day exam from Mon-Wed), so it could have been worse.

I took both PA and NJ and I have to say- NJ was much more straightforward than PA. That freakin' UCC/sale of defective bulldozer question I know I screwed up on.

 :)  i hear you.  i totally made up an answer to the last part (about the effect of the merger on the buyer's claim).

NJ was definitely more straightforward, although the NJ contracts question was not much better..."discuss and analyze all possible issues."  blech.

I am planning on taking both, Mass and NY. Where did you stay in Albany? Was it convenient to the exam location? Thank you so much!

i'm pretty sure the CA bar is Tues-Thurs, so the travel logistics aside, you won't be able to do it.  why would you do that anyway?

I am thinking of taking the Mass. and VA bars.  Is there a good place to get the Mass. distinctions to study?  I am taking BarBri and PMBR in VA.

I'm taking both NY and NJ also.  From what I hear, the NJ portion of the NJ Bar Exam is only on NJ civil procedure, with the rest being exclusively MBE topics.  This is good, cause NY is gonna be a female dog.
check the footnotes ya'll

Louisiana's civil thang is interesting, but quite frankly, it's a brutal exam...  And it's completely different from any other state's exam.  It's the longest in the country, not given on consecutive days (it's a M-W-F), doesn't have an MBE portion, and it's possible to conditionally fail (actually, that is a nice feature of the LA exam).

I guess the question is why you'd want to take Louisiana and another state, and why you think it would be useful.  If it's not going to be useful, it's probably not worth it.
