Simulations Everywhere!

Posted by mcgeorgebarprep on July 6, 2016

First of all, congratulations and great job to everyone who submitted the PR Extra Feedback essay last week!  If you need the sample answer, you can find it here.

There is only one more Extra Feedback exam left:  Contracts, which is due by 6:00 p.m. on Monday, July 11.  For more information and a copy of the question, click here.

But wait, there’s more!  There will be a full-day writing simulation on campus on Saturday, July 9, at 9:00 a.m. in Room C (it will start promptly on time, so arrive early to get set up).  You will write three essays, break for lunch (not provided), and then write a PT.  The review session for this simulation, conducted by bar tutor Belia Ramos, will take place the following Friday, July 15, at 5:00 p.m. in Room A.  All graduates are welcome at the simulation and review, including those not taking the exam for the first time this summer.  No RSVP is required.  UPDATE:  The review session now will occur on THURSDAY, JULY 14, at 5:30 p.m. in Room A.

As if that’s not enough, most bar review companies also plan to hold simulations this week.  And that’s great!  Every time you simulate the exam, you will be that much more prepared to attack it on the Big Day(s).  It will be exhausting, but it’s still early enough to allow time to recover both physically and mentally.  I compare it to running:  If you decide to wake up early to go for a run, when your alarm goes off, there will be a thousand reasons not to follow through — your clothes aren’t clean, your shoes are broken down, you need to make breakfast for someone, etc., etc. — but you know that if you just lace up those shoes and get out there, you will feel better.  Even if it’s awful, and your knee hurts, and you’re slow, you will be so glad that you did it, and you will that much better next time as a result.  Think of simulations like that:  There are a thousand reasons not to get up and drive to the exam and slog through the questions, but if you do it (and review the sample answers), you will be that much better next time.

So hooray for simulations, and for being one and done!
