Kaplan versus Themis

Consensus online is that all bar prep classes suck. Many people say Themis is best because it's the cheapest. For me, Kaplan is the cheapest option because my law school has a deal with them. I'm paying out of pocket. States will be RI + Mass, probably sitting in Mass. I find sitting through online classes for hours to be excruciating and a waste of time. Rather have short vids.

Thoughts?

Yeah go with whatever's cheapest of the big 3 (BarBri, Kaplan, Themis) if you're paying out of pocket.

I think the materials themselves are probably interchangeable. I used Themis and it worked just fine, especially for self-study. Isn't the benefit to something like BarBri supposedly the fact they have like "in-person" classes to keep you focused on studying or some shit?

if you're not a video guy, don't watch videos. just read the outlines and drill problems. Mass is UBE, so just focus on autopass.

Went with Themis. I've heard consistently good things about Themis, but Kaplan is consistently "meh." $1245 versus $999 + $299.

The general consensus is that Barbri, Kaplan and Themis are all very similar so I would agree to go with the one that will give you the best deal price wise
