I didn't even know what an MPRE was until I googled it. Why is this in "pre-law"?Anyway ... seems like part of the same cycle:Undergrad has little to do with LSAT performance. You take a prep course to do better on the LSAT and you do well or poorly on the LSAT regardless of your undergrad performance.Then, LSAT has little to do with law school. You learn how to take law school exams (by reading "Getting to Maybe"?) and your performance on them only has tangential relation to your LSAT performance.Then, law school has little to do with bar passage. You take a BAR-BRI course to make sure you pass the bar, and your performance on it has only tangential relation to your law school performance.Then, bar performance has little to do with lawyerly success. You learn on the job and do well, or you don't, and do poorly, even if you were first in your bar class. Sure, the items are related. But only vaguely, subjectively. By means of soft factors. I think they do a better job in Med school and engineering, of linking testing to skills. Lucky for me, I test well.
What the hell!! Only around 10% of the people in my class actually took and passed the mpre. How the hell did I get a C in my law school's Professional responsibility class??!! With basically the same type of freaking questions!! B/c of the freaking curve?? Are you serious?!! rediculous.... shows how much crap law school grades are....I'm emailing the professor now... hopefully it is a mistake.. but usually isn't... still that just doesn't make sense... I knew the freaking material... crist i passed the mpre in march!! omg!! Seriously... my lowest grade in law school comes from a class where the state bar examinaners said i was within a high percentile??!! Someone explain this to me!! I'm glad that i already passed the mpre.. b/c if I didn't.. i'd be pretty scared of that exam right now... f-ing bull!!
The words I see at the top of my web page right here, are:LAW SCHOOL DISCUSSIONPre-Law DiscussionI dunno, maybe you're accessing it differently? My understanding is, there are sub-sections to the www.lawschooldiscussion.org website. One section is entitled "Pre-Law", another is during-law-schbool and post- (entitled "Students and Graduates"). This discussion is in the former. I don't mind, wuddever ... it would be interesting to know that the same discussion appears in two different boards, though. That would be some fancy programming.
