Re: 2 weeks in - barely billing anything

Yeah dude, enjoy chill stub life while you can. If it gives you comfort, I billed like maybe 50 hours total during my first 3 months. I wouldn't worry about hours until February at the earliest. okay cool — a mid-level did tell us he doesn’t even think anyone checks stub year hours so I mostly assu...

Totally normal. Don’t sweat it until your at least a few weeks or so into the billable year.
this would be January, right?

thanks all!

2 weeks in - barely billing anything

been at the firm for almost 2 weeks (stub year) and have only done about 6 or 7 hours of client billable work. pretty much just sat at my desk all day today. I've been asking around for work. normal?

Re: Notes During Bar Prep

I keep seeing people on reddit struggle with Barbri and studying 8 hours a day, but I’m studying about 4-5 hours a day and doing well above average. How much did you study and how well did you do on your practice questions? Should the studying process feel easier for those who were also naturals whe...

Re: Notes During Bar Prep

don't want to keep making new threads so I'll ask here: how much extra work did you do beyond the Themis/Barbri schedule? Thanks.

Re: Notes During Bar Prep

Are you doing a UBE? I went way over board but made my own outlines for all the possible essay topics and made flow charts of pretty much everything that you could make a chart out of. It was overkill, but the only way I learned to write the essays. I had Kaplan and just didn't find the material to...

Re: Notes During Bar Prep

I took notes during the lectures, which I found more helpful than just filling in the lecture outlines. But that’s just what worked for me, and was what I did throughout law school (I don’t learn very well from premade outlines). And I gave up reading the outlines they provided pretty quickly, exce...

Notes During Bar Prep

I am using Barbri for Bar study. did you take notes while prepping? I'm not sure if it'd be a waste of time since there are outlines (which seem way too detailed). Thanks!
