Sample question*: A young man suggested to his friend that they steal a large- screen TV from a neighbors house. The friend was angry with the young man and decided to use the opportunity to get even with him by having him arrested. The friend said he would help, and that night, he drove the young man to the neighbors house. The young man broke in while the friend remained outside. The friend

called the police on his cell phone and then drove away. Police officers arrived at the scene just as the young man was carrying the TV out the back door. The jurisdiction defines crimes as at common law. Of what crime, if any, can the friend properly be convicted? (A) No crime. (B) Conspiracy. (C) Burglary. (D) Conspiracy and larceny. *copyright NCBE So what is my summer actually going to be like?* Typical bar course format

Simulated MBE: DO IT How long should I study? Peak day is typically 8.5 hours Less than 2-3 hours per day is the difference between passers and those unsuccessful Weekends you take off. Still be you. *Statistics from BarBri Remember, you paid to do this. What to do NOW. Participate in the Bar Exam Skills and Training workshop. Three week course on bar essay writing skills

Tuesday or Thursday at noon; no work outside of each 1 hour session. Buy your prep class Funding available through employers, private loans. Public interest focused students should ask for a discount. Scholarships. Prepare your friends and family. Get everything in place for summer so you dont have to worry about anything else. Arrange for child care (if needed) Decide where you will live/study You should change it up in study spaces! Think carefully about toxic habits and/or people in your life.

Try to clean it up now. Find your Fight Song. During Summer Prep Bar class will likely start after exams but before the Sunflower Ceremony (Themis and Kaplan do; BarBri likely). Everything your bar prep company tells you to. SERIOUSLY. Start memorizing early. Give yourself work hours; be flexible. Typical day includes lecture, review, practice essays, practice MBE

Do questions under time restrictions; bar takers are often surprised by how quickly the time goes. Be a person. Stop by the law school for our bar study pizza lunches! Pass v.
