By now, you are delving into your studies at full steam and have realized that yes, studying for the bar exam is both time consuming and stressful. But it is doable, and the time and energy you put into studying for the exam now will pay off enormously when you pass the bar and become the licensed attorney you set out to become when you began law school just a few years ago.
I spent my summer shifting between the 24 hour Starbucks, my law school’s library and my apartment to cram over 20 subjects worth of material into my brain for a two day test that was tantamount to 50% of my becoming a lawyer – the other half being the three years of my life spent in law school. I spent my days memorizing, memorizing, and memorizing more material than I had at any point previously in my life, and every mnemonic, tip or other helpful hint to help me along the way was most appreciated.
