Prayers for the Bar Exam
« on: July 23, 2008, 11:39:28 PM »
I pray that I do not see a commercial paper question. I never had it during LS, didn't even cover it until a few days ago. I don't understand it and won't even be able to BS it.

I pray that if there is a tax question, it is a simple "is this income" or "can this be deducted" question. If God loves me, he will not allow them to make me do a hotchpot analysis.

I pray that I don't get diarehhea tues and Wed next week. That would suck.

I pray that the MPT is a "draft a letter" scenario.

I pray that the Supreme Court overturns the entire hearsay doctrine and all its f-in exceptions in the next few days.

I pray that the US Air force mistakingly drops a Daisy Cutter bomb on Blackacre, Greenacre, and any other piece of land with 'acre" in it.

But most of all, I pray that the MBE asks about 170 criminal law questions, because that is the only subject I am still scoring over 70% on.

Can we pray for criminal procedure questions, to be specific?  Bar/Bri thinks it's helpful to test on reasonableness in crim law, and because the answers often contradict themselves from one question to the next, I'm just all confused.  :-[

Oh dear lord, anything BUT a criminal procedure question... I still can't figure out the difference between 5th and 6th amendment rights to counsel, no matter how hard I try.  I just know I'll butcher it on the day of the exam.

I pray for no suretyship, commercial paper or secured transaction questions.

I pray the entire essay portion is nothing but criminal law, adverse possession, and federal jurisdiction. 

I pray that contracts and property magically disappears on the MBE.

I pray that I will know what the exam questions are asking, particularly the short answer section. 

I pray I pass, because I don't want to be only clerk the court house that failed.

You know if you were to swap out creditor's rights and put in Equity or Tax, I would be with you.
