We specialize in providing bar exam essay feedback and review. JD Advising employs bar exam tutors who have read thousands of bar exam essays. We also have a law firm which has an extremely high success rate in appealing failed bar exam essays scores. We know what graders like to see, and what they don’t like to see! Our bar exam tutors and essay graders have passed bar exams in Washington, Michigan, California, New York, New Jersey, and Missouri. We have given bar exam essay feedback for students taking the bar exam in states across the nation. We specialize in assisting students with the Uniform Bar Exam, the Multistate Essay Exam, the Multistate Performance Test, the California Bar Exam, and the Michigan Bar Exam.
Note that when we give you feedback, our goal is not simply to copy and paste the model answer into the feedback. Or to give you merely grammatical tips. While we will correct law and structural/organizational defects, our goal is to find patterns and tell you exactly what you are doing wrong and how to correct that.
For example, we will not just say, “your organization needs work.” We instead say, “organize your answer around the call of the question by looking at A, B, and C.” We will not just say, “use more facts!” We will instead give you tips for using more facts. This approach helps students make substantial progress. If you are looking for an example of our feedback, please see this PDF of some MEE sample feedback.
Not only do we work with students nationwide, we also partner with firms, including Am Law firms, and law schools, including top 10 law schools, to provide premier bar exam preparation. Our advice has been featured in Above the Law, the National Jurist, and even People magazine after Kim Kardashian gave us a shoutout on Instagram for our personalized bar exam questions!

How does bar exam essay feedback work?
There are a few steps:
(1) First, we will assign you a grader who specializes in the type of essay exam you are taking. Generally, the same grader will provide feedback on all of your essays and document your progress.
(2) Next, upon purchasing the Multistate Essay Exam (MEE) feedback or Multistate Performance Test (MPT) feedback, you will receive instructions on which MEEs or which MPT to complete. You will also receive links to the MEEs or MPT. All MEEs and MPTs are assigned from the National Conference of Bar Examiners website. As you can see below, you have the option to pay more and schedule a 30-minute phone call with a member of our staff. If you sign up for California or Michigan essay feedback, we will email you the assigned essays. Note: All essays/MPTs are sent via a link or via email. Hard copies are not sent.
Note: If you have your own set of essay questions in mind to complete, that is fine too! Further, if you would like more or fewer essays, that is fine! We can tailor any program to your needs!
(3) You will answer the questions assigned. If you are typing the bar exam, we will ask you to type your answers to these questions. If you are handwriting the bar exam, we will ask you to handwrite your answers and scan them to us. Email your answers to the email address provided in the instructions which are emailed to you upon purchase.
WE WILL PROVIDE PROMPT EXTENSIVE AND PERSONALIZED BAR EXAM ESSAY FEEDBACK TO YOU INCLUDING:
>If there are areas of substantive law you should learn better (and which areas to examine more thoroughly)
>If your organization is good or if you need to work on it more
>If you need to learn rule statements better or if you seem to know the rules well enough
>If you are using enough key legal vocabulary (we will tell you common terms you should be aware of!)
>If you are analyzing the fact pattern sufficiently or if you are missing important facts or issues
>If you are arriving at accurate (or arguably accurate) conclusions and what signs you should look for in the fact pattern to arrive at the correct conclusion
We provide feedback promptly after receiving your email. Again, as mentioned above we also tell you how to improve. Note that we also offer a thirty-minute phone call, to be scheduled at the convenience of both yourself and the tutor so that we can answer any questions and reiterate advice and tips for improvement.
