For those that failed, you can pass the bar if you do the work and put your mind to it. There is no doubt in my mind.
A little background on me, to illustrate. I graduated law school in 2004, took & passed Connecticut then, and have been working in CT ever since.
13 years later I was approached with an opportunity in Florida that intrigued me. The problem is that 95% plus of the bar subjects have nothing to do with my work, so if you asked me to define evidence, let alone tell you rules and answer questions about it, I would have laughed at you.
I started studying in March, while working full time, and did this for 4 months. It was the most ridiculous 4 months of my life, but I did it. Work, dinner, study, gym, study 5 days a week. Marathon study sessions all day and night on the weekends. Rinse and repeat. I passed up a lot of opportunities to hang out with friends and family. Three things allowed me to keep this schedule: absolute desire and commitment to doing it, an extremely understanding girlfriend, and the fact that I don't have any kids.
I only took one week off from my job before the exam, and passed both Parts A & B.
The moral of this post is that if I can do it, working full time, and only taking one week off before the exam, then you can as well. The most important thing I can tell you is to be committed. Really f'n committed. It was the most intense 4 months of my life and I still can't believe that I did it.
