Some states have unique requirements regarding the timing of the MPRE in relation to the bar exam. Four states— Rhode Island , Iowa , Kentucky , and Massachusetts—currently require that all candidates for the bar exam achieve a passing MPRE score before sitting for the exam. Iowa requires the passing score to be on file several months before the exam, with a petition process for candidates who pass the March MPRE and the July bar exam in the same year. Other states have a "window" either preceding or surrounding the bar exam outside of which MPRE scores are not recognized.
Some of these I recognize from actual cases I read in Crim Law!! Love it! ~ Jessica Stone-Erdman, NC
