Taking off 2 extended weekends during bar prep?

Postby nimhnimh » Tue Feb 19, 2013 11:20 am

Considering taking two extended weekends (Thurs-Sun) at the beginning of June and around the third week of June. These would be my only real breaks at all when studying for the bar. How bad of an idea is this?

Probably a great idea. What's your school's bar passage rate? Do you think the eight days you take off during the 2.5 months of studying will but you in that bottom two percent? It will probably help keep you rested and focused when you are studying the rest of the time.

I think taking off time in June is no problem - it's not until July that you lose your mind and can't think about anything besides the bar. (Though I suppose that could have just been me.)

Thanks for the reply, but I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic.
Also, my school has a 95% bar passage rate.
