NYLE and MPRE at same time?

Postby supersplittysplitter » Thu Jan 11, 2018 4:17 pm

Obviously this is a matter of personal preference, but has anybody attempted (successfully) to take the MPRE and NYLE in the same month? This March the NYLE is 2 days before the MPRE, so I am debating whether I should try to knock them both out at once, or if it is better to take the NYLE on June 14. I obviously don't want the NYLE to interfere with bar prep (which I guess turns on how much study time is required for the NYLE).

The NYLE doesn't need any prep time - it will only interfere with your schedule for the 2 or 3 hours on the day of the test. It's probably best to get it out of the way earlier. Also, if something untoward happens (software malfunction, etc) then you'll have another shot in the summer.

Have you completed all of the video lectures for the NYLE? I had to do those during bar prep and for that reason would suggest you get it out of the way while you can.

The MPRE requires studying, but it's nowhere near as hard as the bar. As far as the NYLE, simply print out the PDF, skim it for about an hour on the day before the exam, and have it ready when you take the exam.
