BarBri classes

Hi,

I could not find this anywhere, but how long is class each day for Barbri? I somehow can't figure that out easily on their site. Thanks!

There are morning and afternoon sessions. You can attend either. Sessions are typically 3-4 hours long.

just started the MBE preview today. i spend an hour or so in transit to the barbri location every morning (and its early and I'm not a morning person so I know I won't really get much work done on the train in). Where I'm at there's one room with a lecturer and 3 rooms or so of live feed. Is there any advantage to coming in to go to this as opposed to just watching the lectures on the computer on the BarBri website?

i think it guarantees that you can sit thru the 3hr lectures. if you can focus that long at home, then there's no difference.

No. Just sleep in and get the rest you need to function at your best, watch the lectures online and study when you know you are at your best (me, its usually afternoon / evening before I'm truly productive), and save yourself the hour commute each day you could be sleeping, eating, studying, whatever.

I'd wake up at noon, watch the lecture / study until midnight, XBOX until 4am (my daily reward!), repeat the next day. Ahhhh, that was fun....

From what I've heard, 12 hours a day (noon to midnight) is almost certainly too much time to spend on the bar, particularly in June.
