Feebacks/comments on BarGraders.com (for CA bar exam)

Postby Angel66 » Tue May 22, 2018 5:15 pm

Has anyone used the services on BarGraders.com? They claim that their tutors are former graders. I'm wondering if anyone has actually purchased their grading services and how do you think about it?

Also, has anyone tried their $250 online course? Is it helpful?

Any comments are highly appreciated!

I had my July '17 essays reviewed with one of their tutors and, quite honestly, it's probably why I passed Feb '18. I was IRAC'ing very incorrectly, and my tutor through bargraders.com fixed me. I didn't use their grading service or lectures very much, though. I did use their general lecture for approaching essays for further reinforcement of IRAC structure.

Thank you! I'm a little confused. Did you mean you did or did NOT use their grading services?

Can you please also advise at what stage during the bar prep (e.g. 2 months or 2 weeks before the bar exam) you submitted the essays for grading? How essays did you submit?

I didn't use the grading service where you submit practice essays. Sorry, should've worded that better the first time, haha!

I had the review of my essays mid-January, so a little over a month before the exam. I believe I submitted them shortly after I got them in the mail. I submitted all of them. What they did was they added my assigned BarGrader and myself to an email chain to connect us. Then my Grader had me email her PDFs of my essays and scores, and we set up a time to chat about them on the phone.

Thank you for your patient reply! So is this the same as their grading service? What package did you buy?

Sorry for the confusion... Just wanted to make sure I didn't waste $$$$ on the wrong service. :lol:
