Are you behind on your bar/bri paced schedule for your bar exam prep? Welcome to the club! Give bar exam students a few weeks, and there won’t be a single person who is completely on track. It’s as close to possible as scoring a perfect answer.
The good news? You don’t have to be completely on pace. Bar/bri sets the bar high, both in their scoring and homework assignments. If you can complete all their assignments on time, you are rocking it and probably should be teaching people how to pass the bar exam, rather than taking it.
This doesn’t mean you can fall too far behind. My first few weeks, I mostly stayed on schedule, missing conviser readings and not doing the amount of essays and MBE’s suggested.
In the second phase, I really started to slip and was almost doing things at my own pace, skipping around to what I felt was most important, while trying to keep on track with barbri.
By the end of my bar exam prep, I hadn’t even looked at the second MBE book and not got past MBE exam #5 for each topic. On my essays, I was lucky to have looked at five or six essays per topic. I completed about four or five performance tests.
So, if you’re behind don’t worry. Just keep moving. Focus on improving your weak spots. Everyone else is behind too.
