PR Practice Opportunity (Extra Feedback)

Posted by mcgeorgebarprep on July 6, 2014

2014 Extra Feedback Program schedule (see earlier posts for more information):  2014 EFP Schedule

Note that exam #3 is due tomorrow, Monday.  It’s PR, which is practically guaranteed to be on your bar exam! You need to know it cold, so don’t miss this opportunity.

Professional Responsibility Summer 2010 Question 2

And keep writing plenty of practice exams on your own and comparing them to the model answers! Realistic, timed exam simulation (no cheating!) and thoughtful answer comparison is the key to success, NOT just studying the law.  Even if you feel like you don’t know it well enough, put your outlines away and practice like you will play the game.  You will learn more by doing this than you may think!  If you plan to wait to write practice exams until you “feel ready,” you never will write a practice exam. (You can mess up; that’s why it’s called “practice!”  In fact, making mistakes now means it is less likely you’ll make them when it counts.)

Remember, “I didn’t write enough practice exams” is the #1 repeater comment!

Accident

Posted by mcgeorgebarprep on May 24, 2014

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to check in personally and apologize for any radio silence.  We all are pulling for you during your bar prep, but unfortunately recently I was in a severe bicycle accident in which I lost the use of part of my brain and the use of one of my eyes.  I’m beyond grateful that my doctors predict a full recovery with patience, but suffice to say that focus in general and using a computer right now is very difficult (thank goodness for voice recognition software!).  Although I am not on campus as I recover and not as quickly available online as usual, rest assured that there are plenty of faculty and staff at McGeorge during the summer if you have any immediate questions, and we all wish you the absolute best.

I must say before signing off that my helmet saved my life.  I almost died anyway, and I certainly would have been gone without it.  That means two things:  (1) You always should wear a helmet!!; and (2) There is nothing like a near-death experience to put things into perspective.  Although I hope none of you ever will be in this position, please try to maintain perspective during bar prep.  It is a test — that’s it.  It’s a very important, expensive test that I hope you pass on the first attempt, but your life and the lives of your loved ones will not end based on the outcome of this exam.  Keep working hard, but please keep that in mind as you do.

Wishing you all the best,

Courtney Lee
