Have You Failed the MPRE Three Times? (Or Four Times, Or Five Times)…

MBE DiagnosticHave You Failed the MPRE Three Times? (Or Four Times, Or Five Times)…

The Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE) is tougher than it may seem at first glance. Many students have to take the MPRE not once, but twice, three times, or more! So if you find you have failed the MPRE three times, you are definitely not alone! The good news is, to our knowledge anyway, it is not on your record and we have never heard of an employer asking if you failed the MPRE! So, while it may be a hassle, and while those application fees can be expensive, and while you may hate wasting more than one Saturday morning on it, at least it is not going to leave any kind of blemish on your record. In this post, we tell you how to move past the MPRE and pass it the next time you take it! (You may also want to check out this post about why failing the MPRE can be a good thing!)

MPRE Difficulty: How Difficult is it to Pass the MPRE?

failed the bar examMPRE Difficulty: How Difficult is it to Pass the MPRE? I think one of the most common “law school myths” I keep hearing is that the MPRE is “super easy.” And that “you don’t have to study for the MPRE.” I often encounter students who have fallen victim to this awful advice (if that is that you want to call it). I am not saying that the MPRE is impossible. Or that it requires months and months of study. However, it does require SOME study and preparation. Continue reading

Looking for an MPRE Outline?

Meagan_Jabbori_1Looking for an MPRE Outline? Note: we do have a lovely MPRE cheat sheet if you are looking for a concise MPRE outline. However, in this post, we want to convince you why you should make your own outline. 

As the MPRE gets closer, many students are looking for a “good” MPRE outline. We hear a lot of the same complaints from students who are studying—some of the outlines are too long, others are too short, and some use different language than the Model Rules.

This brings us to the advice we give everyone—you should make your own MPRE outline. We aren’t saying that you need to spend hours sitting in front of the Model Rules and start from scratch. Rather, you should start with an outline that is already completed. For instance, use a Barbri or Kaplan or our outline. Then, parse it down and put it into your own words. Continue reading

The first step is usually to ask why your MPRE score is low. In other words, why do you miss MPRE questions?

Your MPRE score could be low because you do not know the rules. Or because you read the fact patterns too quickly. Or because you get tricked by the answer choices. Or a number of other reasons. One way to determine why your MPRE score is low — and to improve your MPRE score at the same time — is to learn to approach MPRE questions slowly and methodically. Continue reading
