Last time I'm taking this stupid test & I switched to Themis

Postby VSCPGH » Tue Nov 29, 2016 9:32 am

Taking the PA bar for the 3rd time in February and just began the Themis program yesterday.. I enrolled in Barbri the first time, freaked myself out, never completed the program, and missed the bar by roughly 25 points. The 2nd time, I did Barbri to about 90%, and missed by 4 points. So god willing, I'm going to do Themis to completion, and this is the last G-D time I plan on taking this exam.

Side note, I was an evening student, and have always worked full time while in law school and while prepping for the bar. I'm starting much earlier this time so I am not overwhelmed / don't have to drain all my vacation days AGAIN for this exam.

Anyone have similar stories / feedback / recommendations? I am really loving Themis so far. It's much less daunting than Barbri, and obviously way less expensive.

Repeater. Failed and passed with Themis. You are on the right track, as your score is correlated with the work you put in the course. I believe the amount of work and time I put in, is what propelled me over the bar, so that is my advice to you. Also, I only used one supplement for the MBE which was Critical Pass.
