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.thesealocust wrote:I didn't take BarBRI, I studied using materials available on my bar's website and a condensed $99 course from baroutlines.com. 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.
