One Month CAL bar plan

Postby DodgerBlues1991 » Mon Jan 28, 2019 4:55 pm

We have just about one month left here until the bar. Was wondering if any former bar passers has a very solid 1-month plan or day-by-day calendar they can share. Wanting to know what is the best plan of attack for the last month to cover/memorize/practice as much as possible. Specifically what many people did the last 2 weeks and how many hours were put in. Thank you in advance!

I generally stuck to a strict 8-9 hour a day schedule and no more than that, b/c I knew that I (unlike a lot of law students) had my limits and any more studying than that wouldn't do me much good.

Start the morning w/ a 25-50 set of MBE, outline/write 2 essays and if there was time left, memorization. Break for lunch. Afternoons would be memorization (rotating through all the different subjects), end w/ a set of 25-50 MBE.

Would adjust the schedule based on where I assessed my weaknesses were.

I think the most important thing w/ 1 month out is you need to be self-aware of where you need to put the work in. I knew my biggest weakness were the MBEs, so I drilled hard on that to improve and it paid off in the long run. Use your time wisely, and study smart!

Good luck! You can do it!

The last two weeks I did 20-30 MBEs every day, memorized by heart my checklists of issues, and repeated over and over every subject (1-2 a day with major focus on what you never remember). I don’t think I did any PT the last two weeks but before that I used to do/outline at least one every two weeks. Good luck! It’s almost over guys!
