It was about a month of hard studying and I spent a lot of time focused on the things most likely to be tested instead of taking a shotgun approached. Passed comfortably.

All summer people taking BarBRI bitched about the quality and consistency of the product. In particular, I felt like prepping for the essays via freely available material put me in better shape than the people who let BarBRI take care of them.
C'mon, man. I don't mean to break-a your anonymity stride, but you are someone whose law school performance was extraordinary even as compared to other "top law school" students. I think a "results not typical" or something like that is in order.

10-12 hours per day 7 days per week of "real" learning, studying, and practicing. I have to pass first time or I will not be able to feed my kids.

way too intense-- you will either peak too early or burn out.
