To everyone taking the bar tomorrow…
« on: July 27, 2009, 04:42:07 PM »
Your ready for this, you really are. You know enough to pass at this point.

The only thing that can defeat you now is yourself. This is not law school, this is not the time to get fancy with your legal reasoning, you’re not trying to beat anyone out for that A. State your rules, apply your facts, go for your points, address the stuff you know and bypass the stuff you have forgotten. Don’t get bogged down, plow forward even if you seem stuck. BS if you have to, you won’t get any points deducted and may just get lucky and say something the grader thinks counts as a point. Your all smart enough to pass this. All you need to do is pass by one point, it’s a measure of competency, not highest grade in the class, to the bar you’re as competent if you pass by one point as you are if you pass by 100 points. Focus on the exam, not the "what ifs," don't project bad things, you will make it through this.

Believe in yourself, shake it off when you start to get discouraged and don’t second guess yourself. YOU KNOW ENOUGH TO PASS - ALL OF YOU DO. Don’t let it psyche you out, remember no matter how tough it seems for you there is someone out there who has it tougher (even compared to me!) So do the best you can and that’s the best you can do.

Good luck everyone and I'll see all you guys/gals on the other side.

Take note: This is a class act.

Yes, Matthies is definitely a class act, even if he does hate Admin Law.  ;)

Good luck to all, especially to all the Cleveland-Marshall grads taking the bar in Columbus, Ohio this year.

I'm still a little shell-shocked from essays today.  Not what I expected.  I'm just thanking my lucky stars that my job gives me another try or two before they boot me, LOL.

Everyone remember to always mark "B" tomorrow ;)
