Bar Exam Cram Session
About two weeks prior to the bar, I knew the law pretty well and was having encouraging MCQ results.
Every time I sat down to write an essay, however, I was frozen. I felt completely abandoned by my bar review course.
It was absolutely terrifying. One afternoon, I was working on evidence (my nemesis)
and ended up in tears. I can't remember what I googled, but I found the Bar Exam Guru's website cram session page.
It read something to the effect of "Don't know how to start an essay? Don't know what to write?"
YES! Exactly! It was as though I had never written one, and I just could not write. I signed up that very
minute and, without a doubt, am sure that the cram session was the turning point for me. It gave
me much needed emotional strength, but also structure and a plan of how to spend the final week
(with the goal being "resolving issues in my favor"). When the proctor said, "go" on Tuesday morning, I dove in and put the
method to work. It worked, I passed! I'll just add this: I went to school on line. Everyone always counts us out,
but I don't care where you went to school. Do yourself a favor and spend some time with the Bar Exam Guru.
