Yes. There was a thread on it a while back, but I can't seem to find it. Go watch it.

Yeah... i didn't like it that much, they spend way too much time talking to people who have failed the bar and are nervous they will fail it again. They picked california for the setting so that they could have a state with a really crappy/difficult bar passage rate.

On the other hand, there were some interesting spots; the interviews with successful lawyers were interesting, and it was hilarious when the Bar tutor shows up to this guy's house in a Ferrari.

Yeah some of those people were depressing- like the guy that took it 40+ times and the lady who couldn't sit because she didn't have enough hours per unit or w/e. She could have probably just gone to another state though.

I was thinking California might have a low pass rate (less than 40%) because of the large hispanic population who speak english as a second language.
