We work so hard at law school. The last thing we want to do is come in on a day when we don’t have class, right? For a mandatory Bar Prep? Ugh…..
But what a presentation. For those of you not in the know yet, the school had a mandatory MBE boot camp for students graduating in May. It was actually a great experience. The speaker was high energy and gave us lots of clues that we may not get in whatever prep course we take.
Over the next few months, we’ll also have MPT and Essay practice. And we won’t pay an extra penny for it. It seems that GSU doesn’t have that amazing pass rate just because we are the most amazing law students ever. The COL is investing in our future! They are giving us extra tools to help us be successful. Yes, we’ve paid tuition, but I haven’t heard about those big expensive schools going out of their way to try to ensure that students pass. Have you? Oh, and what do their pass rates tell you?
If the bar exam is still a few years away, you can rest easy knowing that the COL has a vested interest in you passing and will help you do it. If you are graduating in May, things probably got very real for you at the bootcamp. If you’re like most of us, you’ve stopped grumbling about mandatory boot camp, are a little more comfortable about getting started on studying soon, and have a healthy respect for the subtle difference in multiple choice answers that can be the difference between you passing and trying again.
If you haven’t purchased a prep program, talk to your friends, talk to reps around the school, talk to the Deans and your professors. It seems like we work so hard in class that we’ve forgotten that it will eventually all come down to this: THE BAR EXAM!
Thank you COL for helping to get us ready!
