Used Themis for July 2017. Pro: you have the same essay grader for all essays submitted. Con: you have the same essay grader for all essays submitted.
Mine was very thorough, but definitely low balled. His comments were sometimes substantive, other times, more style- based (i.e. use IRAC v. CRAC, etc). At times, this was helpful, other times less so. Themis is known for getting the essays back to you very quickly which is a plus. I had a private tutor as well so I tried to bounce the comments I was receiving from Themis off my tutor to see whether the grades were accurate (they were lower than what I received on exam day)
