Graduation is finally over! The feeling is wonderful, but bittersweet as well for me because of what is yet to come. Lots of people start calling you a lawyer, even though technically you are not. That itself adds a lot of pressure.
Many of my fellow JDs made the best of this event, but everyone also kept in mind that they had to start bar review the next morning. I am taking an online course, Themis. And so, my focus is to concentrate on the MEE topics first and then get to the MBE topics. Also, it is important to note that both sections have an overlap, so maybe that might be a good idea (to go over the topics just on the MEE).
The biggest piece of advice I was given is to focus on the MBE more. And this is where the Critical Pass flashcards come into play. I started some chapters on Contracts on Themis and have been going over the flashcards. These flashcards are a great way to go over what was covered in the lectures (especially what the main points were). Also, I believe that ample amount of time should be given to each MBE topic, instead of rushing through the subjects to complete a certain percentage of the course.
I am looking forward to using these flashcards to go over the important points in each subject and then do practice questions.
