I have this sick obsession with having a blog post up everyday, so even though I am super busy it has been bugging me all day that I didn’t pre-schedule a post for today. But because of how busy I have been I don’t have time to write a review or do a proper discussion post because I like to edit and digest those before I post them.
So I figured I would just do a quick update to check in and let you all know what is going on in my life.
Tomorrow I take the MPRE, which is the multi-state professional responsibility exam and it is part of the bar exam. Basically it is about ethics- the things that lawyers can do, must do, and can’t do. I am so nervous!
Graduation is coming up wait too quickly and finals are coming up even quicker. Plus this is the bar exam. It is kind of a big deal and what if I don’t pass? All my friends and family are very supportive but they all expect that it is an automatic thing that I will pass.
Whenever I express concern to one of them, they say something like “You will do fine” or “You are so smart, I am sure you will do great!” This is one of my biggest pet peeves! It is very nice, and I am happy that they think that, but they don’t really know that I will do fine or great. Yes, I did very well in undergrad and I have been doing fine in law school, but none of that mean that I will for sure pass the bar exam.
And another thing that makes me nervous is that the professional responsibility section is often times regarded as the easiest section of the bar. So if I don’t do well, what does that mean for the rest of the bar exam- which is much harder?
Ok this turned into a rant, which I did not intend. I have been studying a lot for this test and I am more than a little nervous.
How do you guys handle test stress? Does it annoy you when people tell you not to worry and you will do fine on something?
Let me know in the comments below 🙂
