Of those slam dunk essays. My buddy skipped feb and is cursing now.
It doesn't work that way. The essays are ranked. This means the highest ranked essay gets the equivalent of the highest MBE score, and so on and so forth until the guy who wrote nothing gets what the lowest MBE score got. In essence, it doesn't matter how insanely hard the essays are, the scores will EXACTLY equal the scores of the MBE because the scoring is tied to the MBE. In other words, your individual fate relies upon how you did on the essays, but the fate of the group depends on how they scored on the MBE. Your group could have written the essays in crayon and it wouldn't matter.
On the other hand, the easier the essays are the more subjective the results are going to be. If the essays really were that easy (I agree they were) your friend who skipped February missed out on a dice toss.
