Vivian came to me after having failed the NY Bar Exam four times.
Vivian is a badass. She followed my program and did the work.
After the bar exam I asked her how she felt. She told me "I am feeling ok after the exam, not sure I passed but I definitely felt prepared for the exam in general. I am just hoping to get enough points to pass in any state at this point lol."
Vivian did one better.
She passed in the state she wanted - NY - with "lots of points to spare."
I am so fucking proud of Vivian.
My name is Jessica.
If I've written this page properly, you ought to be able to feel my energy by the time you're done reading it.
You're probably thinking....energy?... wtf is this chick even talking about!? Let's skip the airy fairy shit - I need to pass THE BAR EXAM!
That is exactly what I'm talking about. YOU passing the bar exam, and ME being completely unlike the other guys while I show you how to do it. I'm not a copycat. I'm not another stuffed shirt. I'm not here because the bar exam space needs one more person full of hot air sucking the life out of the room.
Strategies & Tactics for the MBE by Emanuel is the bomb-diggity, so I am going to mail this book to you, too!
I would be a selfish cow if I didn't include this book in my course.
You need it. Everyone who takes the MBE needs it.
You'll thank me.
Hell, if you're reading this right now and have no intention of purchasing my course, do yourself a BIG FUCKING FAVOR and go buy this book for yourself anyway.
(If the fact that I didn't even try to sell you on my own book but I'm pushing this one down your throat doesn't give you a clue, then I don't know what else I can do to convince you how good it is.)
Zig Ziglar said it best when he said "Motivation doesn't last. Well neither does bathing. That's why we recommend it daily."
The bar exam is the quintessential marathon. It's impossible to feel motivated every day. Let me do that for you. I will text you inspiration every. single. day.
Side note: Zig is amazeballs. If you've never heard a recording of this powerful communicator, you are missing out.
"This is a very doable method, and it is very comprehensive. I have spoken with a number of people who have spent thousands of dollars for the "big" bar review program, and many of them did not pass the bar despite the money and time they invested. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to pass the bar exam the first time around." - Lynda Hartsell
I felt very prepared for both the MBE and the essay portions. I wasn’t hoping for a certain subject like a few people around me, I wasn’t nervous and most of all I wasn’t tired because I had the stamina to sit there essay after essay. I even through I had a headache during the MBE, both days were just like another practice day, just with more people than usual.
There are many things that I liked about your program.
I loved your PT video the way you have it: in real time and unrehearsed. It has the experience that I go through doing a PT. It really helped me to demystify this part of the test. The highlighting really helped to make the law easier to see and understand within a short time, and see what facts I needed to plug in to the right places.
I liked your inspirational quotes and meditation: I think it’s important to keep a positive attitude and it helped to reaffirm that copying is a good method of studying.
I used your meditation from time to time to go to sleep, to wake up inspired, and Monday and Tuesday night during the bar. You have a very calming voice.
I liked that your study program was very broad and deep and active. Copying was important to really see a bar essay elements and time pressure, and the other stages of gradually taking off the training wheels were important to switch up and become more ready for the bar. It helped to cover all the subjects rather than hoping that some subjects weren’t going to be tested. In fact, the first essay was a community property/wills/trusts combo and another was an evidence/civil procedure combo, but I was too busy spotting the issues and writing to notice that there were 3 subjects in one essay. I only appreciated what I had done after lunch.
I liked that my whole practice with the MBE was with official questions. I saw a few look alike questions on the bar that made them easier to answer. I talked to another applicant who used AdaptiBar, which doesn’t have the ability to practice with just OPE questions. You can test with OPE 1 – 4, but when you practice, you can either mix in OPE questions with the fake questions or eliminate the OPE questions altogether, but you can’t just do 20 OPE questions and add them to a running HIT list like your program. I liked that I used paper and pencil just like they do on the bar and that I only had OPE questions.
I learned so much by learning your way of studying for the bar. I learned how much effort it took to study, I learned what goes into a good essay, and I learned how to conquer the PT.
I think that I actually learned to get a feel for whether I was on track or not for the essays. It really showed when I was in stage 4 and compared my answer to the model answer.
But there is something more valuable that I learned that I would not have learned if I had the private tutor: I really learned how to study for the bar, any bar. In this anxious time before knowing whether my good effort was good enough to pass, I am contemplating either studying for the CA bar or whether I should just take the bar in Chicago or New York. I would not have even have thought being able to do any of these options if I had not gone through your program.
Jessica, I can’t begin to thank you enough for your help. You were very supportive, and very helpful. I wish there were more people like you. You are such a wonderful person and attorney.
I have told my friend [xxxx] to sign up with you, and even on the first evening of the bar exam, I referred a student whose last name is [xxxx] to your website. Thank you."
