Real talk though, there's not enough transparent, real, actionable advice on the bar exam BECAUSE most people bounce after the bar is behind them. It's such a waste to me not to share the methods and systems that changed my approach the second time. I (and some other repeaters I see from time to time) am here to fill that gap but also have fun at the same time during this painful process.
I can vouch for your emails and products helping me when I was locked away studying around family who had no idea what I was going through.
I agree about the need for visibility on the issue of the bar. It reminds me of an old physics professor I had. He was a downright horrible teacher. The kind who was using a textbook from the '70s, had checked out mentally, and didn't actually teach you anything but still gave everyone super difficult tests. Everyone freaked out and stressed over their grades because the average was a 40%, but he never mentioned how he curved. So during the semester many students always said they were going to rant and rave to get this guy canned, but when he handed out grades, he never gave anything lower than a C. So when you had a 40% test average and thought you were going to likely fail, getting a C was like manna from heaven so you just happily took that grade and gave up your quest to get the guy sacked because that whole experience was behind you. Then when other people complained later on, you would just say "It's not that bad. You'll be alright" as if that excused the professor from inflicting that level of stress on students. What did you care anymore? It was behind you!
lol I had some professors like this in undergrad too. I hated them for 3 months and, when I passed by the skin of my teeth, I just forgot about them.
