Is this the full Barbri program - for free? Am I missing something in the fine print here?
No, I don't think that you're missing anything; I believe that it is true that they will pay for the program for free. However, based on this, it is actually not as big of a benefit as most people think. That is to say, after graduating, your future employer will usually cover the cost of bar prep as well as living expenses, so what this school is almost admitting to with this program is that their graduates will not have jobs because the school has to step in and do what employers usually cover. Passing the bar is great and all, but if you don't have a job lined up by that point in time, you are probably not in a good spot.
While I agree with your analysis, wouldn’t it be great if all schools offered this benefit? No matter the school, if you are a 3L somewhere stuck in a bad place, this (a Barbri with a satisfactory living stipend) could certainly be a welcomed lifesaver.
They would just increase tuition to cover this "benefit."
