yes. also free bar prep course.

How much work is it generally? Would you say it's worth it?

I didn't do it, so I don't know. It never looked like a lot of work - at my school the reps basically sat at a table over lunch (not every single day) and seemed to study a lot - but I don't know what else they had to do.


Being a BARBRI Rep is super easy. I put in 2 hours a month of tabling, plus send out an email once in a blue moon. It may vary by school, however. Saving ~2.5k and/or getting paid ~2.5k if your firm covers the course is definitely worth it.

*EDIT: other than the free course, BARBRI reps don't get paid *at least at my school*

Suit wearers =/= gunners though, at least.

In other news, today someone came up to me and their first words were "You have really nice eyebrows" and I was like this is finally the moment that someone asks me if I'm gray but then they were like "where do you get your eyebrows done?" and my hopes were shattered.

Were you hoping to be identified period, or were you hoping for identification based on your eyebrows?

I mean I have a bunch of TLS IRL friends already but I was kind of expecting lurkers to awkwardly ask. At the open house I got "are you Gray? I recognized you by your eyebrows" a couple of times.

Well you do have a distinctive face, but I wouldn't have gone straight to eyebrows.

Today I finally gave up on the notion of vaguely respectable casual clothes and went to class in shorts and flip flops. #freedom

Favorite is starting to be civpro, followed closely by torts.

Least favorite is actually a tie between lrw and property at the moment

I've seen one person wear the same exact clothes almost every day for three weeks. Literally, no one cared. They're all too busy being baptized by the fires of 1Hell to care.

(Damn did that last part sound creepy haha)
