It sounds like you paid a deposit to Themis and now want to instead use a different company? If so, I don't see an issue--you'll just be out a deposit and won't get bar review services from Barbri.
I mean, did you sign some sort of exclusivity contract with Barbri saying you would not use any other company to study for the bar?
Yeah, Barbri makes people sign contracts saying they won't switch bar prep companies. And yeah it is highly highly unlikely that they will sue you for not going through with it, but this whole moral dilemma/meltdown you're having is the reason they do it. So ridiculous.
Huh, never knew. That's odd. I don't think Kaplan has anything like that (that I know of anyways).
Either way, you're right--this is a non-issue.
No, Kaplan doesn't have anything like this.
Barbri flipped shit last fall (probably because it's been losing a lot of its market to competitors) and decided to offer people a substantial discount off regular tuition if those people would put a $500 deposit down and sign a K stating that if you didn't pay the rest of the amount due by X date, you'd be in breach and subject to collection and potential litigation. I've forgotten some of the details of the K now since I haven't looked at it for six(ish) months, but I know some law school deans were not happy.
As to the original question, general consensus among the other bar review companies is that Barbri probably won't try to enforce (though they may be jerks about it if you want to switch).
