I have finished 11.7% of Themis so far, seeing if anyone else is in a similar position or has been.

I started with Themis too.
This is my second bar. I studied full time for the first. Trying to study over evenings and weekends is like having a second job!

Second bar as in passed the first and sitting for another jurisdiction?

I am currently clerking for a Judge, then May 14th I start my job with the firm that hired me as an associate. Salaried position so I am sure they will work me to the bone. Only giving me one week off. My bosses both went to UVA law and literally think of me passing the bar as not even a question haha I went to a low tier state school. This is my first bar. I am very nervous. Trying to get to 25% completion before May 14th when everyone else starts. Hopefully then I will have enough time to finish up the course. How far are you along? Currently only scoring 50-55% on MBE practice in contracts :?

Yes passed the first (UBE):)
I am a little over 25% on Themis--switched to flex after finishing 5 contracts MBE session, doing all the lectures (and assessment questions) first.

Wow, you are far along. You will for sure finish the course. What are you getting on the MBE contracts?
