Well, I took the MPRE exam today, and it really, really sucked. I mean really. I expected to feel better about the test than this, considering that I aced the ethics class and I have been studying for this for the better part of two weeks.
But, unfortunately, like everything else in law school, I walked out of that exam having no idea whether I passed or failed. Before law school, I could walk out of an exam and at least know that I did well or poorly. That doesn't happen anymore.
There is something really sick about a style of learning and testing that gives you this much anxiety, and then so much uncertainty and ambiguity about scoring. If I did not pass, I not only have to take it again in November, but I have to think about all that wasted time and emotional energy put into this load of crap.
As a friend today said, "If I passed, you'll hear about it; if I didn't, you won't hear from me." Hear hear.
