    I'm trying to keep my options open as far as practice goes. I may do either Corporate work or maybe civil trial work.

    As to Law School, FKAGobucks877, I went to the University of Virginia.

    I'll be sitting in Maryland. I'm also planning on being admitted in DC without examination, provided I score high enough on the Multistate Bar Examination.

    I think I will take the review course before I do the exam, so hopefully I will be prepared.


    Congrats. Take all of the review courses, especially PMBR. And please, if you pass the bar, don't do PI work.

    Woody, for what it's worth, I thought going to the review courses was a waste of time. I got the BAR/BRI books and did the studying myself. Just figure out what works best for you and you'll have no problem.

    I probably would have decided to just do it myself, but after three years of school and two summers of work, I am a bit frazzled and I think the structure may be beneficial. Thanks for the advice though, I'll let you know how it works out. I take it you practice in Atlanta, rugbybuck?

    Yeah, "practice" is probably the right word for it. As far as the bar prep goes, I'd just suggest being clear about how you learn best and trying not to get caught up in the wave of hysteria with everybody else. If the structure is good for you, great. My point was that the review sessions are just a default setting. Best of luck.

    Woody, do PMBR questions over and over and over and over again until you recognize them when you see them. PMBR's questions are almost verbatum the questions you will get on the multistate. BARBRI's suck. I got a 162 on the multistate and there were probably 120 of the 200 questions that I felt like I recognized and did not even have to think about. I also finished the multistate portion with 40 minutes to spare. I attribute it to doing the questions ad nauseum.
