It May Be Time for a Private Tutor

Posted in Uncategorized on April 26, 2012 by barprofs

The time has come when you check the bar examiners website, look up your number and see that you have failed the bar. Shock, disappointment, sadness, angry, embarrassment – you run the gaunlet of emotions. What do you do now?

Spend a little time with your emotions. Get them all out – have yourself a cry, throw your books across the room, but then there comes a time when you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and try again.

You must take the bar exam again – do not take too long to get over your emotions. Have your cry and move on. It’s time to refocus again on the bar. I’ve had students tell me that they have studied the hardest they had ever studied for anything in their lives for their first bar exam. That’s probably true, but that’s why it’s time to examine how your study. Taking the exam again will call for a change in approach, strategy, and preparation for you to pass that final hurdle in fulfilling your dream of becoming a lawyer. The bar exam is not an academic exercise. The bar examiners want to know whether you are prepared to practice law.

Let BarProfessors look at your scores in depth. We will be able to tell you what areas you need to work on, without neglecting the stronger areas of your performance. The analysis of your scores will determine how to prepare a strategy for yourself as your prepare for the next exam.

Don’t do the same thing you did for the first bar you took. Employ a private tutor who can work one on one with you to keep you sharp and motivated and you”ll be on the way to passing the bar. Keep working, don’t despair and good luck.

Please note that BarProfessors provides private tutorial for the Florida, California, Texas and New York July 2012 bar exams. Please go to barprofessors.com or send an e-mail to pass@barprofessors.com
