Georgia MPRE Score Requirement

Georgia requires bar exam applicants to pass the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (“MPRE”). You must score 75 or higher on the MPRE in order to pass in Georgia.

Scoring/Grading and Results

In order to pass the Georgia bar exam, you must score at least 270. This equates to 135, based on the MBE’s 200-point scale. To obtain this score, raw scores are converted to scaled scores, and then combined. The results of the Georgia bar exam results are generally released in late May for the February bar exam, or late October for the July bar exam.

Reciprocity

Reciprocity may be available to any attorney licensed in a United States jurisdiction other than Georgia if the Georgia Board of Bar Examiners finds that the attorney satisfies the admission eligibility requirements. Admission may be made on motion without examination if the attorney is certified for fitness and satisfies other eligibility requirements.

Heidi was unsuccessful twice with Barbri before enrolling in tutoring.

“Well, the one thing I did do differently was not use Barbri… I used the AmeriBar materials and had the one-on-one tutorial for the essays. I do think it probably made a large difference in how I handled and approached my essays.”
