I don't think it's 'fairly normal' to take a vacation before writing the bar exams. I don't know anyone who did that. When the materials come out, you typically have ~6 weeks, which for most people is spent studying pretty much full-time. When I wrote, I was a part of a group of classmates who shared the indexing work. Doing that, reading `2000 pages of dense materials, and becoming familiar with my index, didn't leave any time for a vacation!
Hi all! I am looking towards the future here. I would love to take a short vacation prior to studying for the June bar exams but I am wondering how late is too late when it comes to beginning to work through the study materials. Perhaps I have been lucky with exam schedules in past years, but exams seem to end later than usual in April this year (the same week as bar materials are released). I am sure taking a vacation following law school exams/before studying for the bar is fairly normal, however, I don't want to over-estimate/under-estimate how long it takes to prepare for the exams. Looking for perspectives from those who have went through the process. Thank you!
This makes me nervous... I seem to have the earliest movement 11/26 but plenty of others have similar if not better stats than I and my GPA wasn't even up in November for them to use that. 16x LSAT and first gen.
