MPRE…the Pre-Bar Exam…Sort Of
ORIGINALLY POSTED 9/21/11 (Additional comments added 11/12/11) Alright, I can finally talk about it: MPRE scores came out. Praise God, I passed with flying colors! To pass in Texas you need a score of 85–I got 101. I wonder if the State Bar would consider banking those extra points for me to use on the bar exam. You think? Hmmm, me neither, but it doesn’t hurt to ask!
I would have been surprised to fail, but you never know. In my mind this was “the state of TEXAS” standing between me and a passing score and I really wanted to pass the first time. I’m so glad this is done. I’m starting to see signs around school about prep classes for the November exam and I just smile.
My 3L bar card arrived, so I’m official! I promptly filed my first law suit a few days later. Then I called the client, introduced myself, and discussed the status of her case. She was very happy to hear from me and I was amazed at how easily “I’m the lawyer working on your case,” just rolled off my tongue. Next I’ll prepare the medical billing affidavits and begin reviewing another case set for trial in October.
A heartfelt thank you to: Emily, Doug, Julie, Gloria and Ruth. These folks in Admissions, Financial Aid, and Student Services made it possible for me to timely complete a complicated scholarship application. I needed so much documentation that I doubted I’d make the deadline, but when I asked for help I was received warmly and with a smile. I don’t know that they realize how much their efforts are appreciated, especially when one of us students comes running in needing something done fast. This, my friends, is when it pays off to be in a small school where people know and care about you. It’s not just a job, it’s a family.
