This week, nearly 50,000 law graduates across the country sat down en masse to take the test that will help determine if years of schooling and thousands in tuition were worth it.

Graduates on Wednesday sharpened their No. 2 pencils for the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE), the multiple-choice portion of the bar exam composed of 200 bedeviling questions covering everything from botched widget designs to bumbling bank robbers.
