Re: Full-time working bar studiers (past and present) for Feb Bar

Working for a firm, taking Bar this February in CA.

I officially get 10 days (including the time to actually sit for the exam), but will probably take vacation and take off from February 5-28 (3 full weeks off leading up to test day).

All of the partners and associates I work for have been very supportive of me leaving early to go study and managing my workload to ensure I have plenty of study time.

2 weeks. I could ask for more as I have been extremely fortunate to have found a firm that has been supportive of me studying during slow periods and lunch without raising eyebrows.

State court clerkship taking my second bar (passed my state's bar in July). I’m flying to the state where I am taking the UBE the Thursday before the bar (5 hour flight). That's all the time I get off.

Mainly listening to lectures during my commute (1.5-2 hours each day) and taking practice tests when I can. I scored above 150 on the MBE (my state doesn't release scores, just tells me where I can transfer) and on the pre-MBE I scored about the same as I did on the Practice test a week before the July bar. For me, I am mainly focused on reviewing and rememorizing the rules.

Full time administrative director for the health services unit (psychiatrists and nurses) of a mental health non-profit that operates 50ish in-patient residential care facilities/supportive housing facilities for SPMI medicaid patients, as well as a few large outpatient centers and various other services like rental assistance, veterans affairs supportive housing, intensive case management, blah blah blah. I'm 2 and a half years removed from lawschool and didn't plan on using my degree for very reasons. They asked me to take the bar exam to have me take over various law-related things they handle (negotiating county contracts, internal quality control, union negotiations, HIPAA).

I'm getting 0 days off to study and I have to use vacation time for the 2 days of the bar exam. :D
