"Catching Up" on Barbri/Bar Studying

Postby newlawgrad » Tue Jun 12, 2012 3:38 pm

So, long story short, I've been traveling since graduation. just got back this week, but am still getting my bearings. Through the first 2-3 days of Barbri, thats it - so essentially 2 weeks behind, minimum (obviously not counting the preview or amp stuff).

Without being scolded or flamed (i know i'm an idiot, and i also know that most everyone isn't studying 12 hours a day minimum or not doing anything until july 4th), just wondering what the advice is on "catching up," or more accurately what not to skip. Really feel kind of lost. Starting to think I've let the whole minimum competency, 90% first time passage rate go to my head enough where I was clearly overly confident. Really don't want to fuck it up, even more so due to bar-study loan, stipend, and my firm won't let me start if I fail (not to mention the further consequences of that).

In case someone thinks this matters: top 25% or so at t14.

Help really appreciated, particularly from anyone who has passed already or has anecdotal advice from similar situations.

The chances that you will fail the bar exam are very low.
