Every February and July test takers sit in various venues for a 1.5 to 3 day period to take the Bar Exam. As someone who has taken the Bar, I’ll have to admit that it was one of the most physically and mentally demanding time periods of my life. You are essentially asked to cram loads of legal information (including various nuances in certain state laws) and commit that information to memory over a three month period. Many of my associates can attest to the fact that you are cut off from family, friends, social activities, and life generally for a period of three months studying for whatever state bar you are taking. Each state has its own level of difficulty. California Bar passage rates last year were at 54%. On the other end of the spectrum 91% of Montana test takers passed the bar in 2008.[featured-image]
I say all of that to tell you that I’m crazy. Why am I crazy?
