Bar Prep started today. BAR/BRI four hours a day in class and ??? hours outside of class until July 11, and then two weeks of hell before the big days July 26 and 27! As most of law school went, some people are freaking out, some people are acting cool but freaking out internally, and others are just not really paying attention. Turning on the hard core studying a little over a week after we graduated is a real challenge, but I am up to it.

Sorry the posts have been sparse. After graduation, I was working tons of hours, and now it looks like I am going to try to keep working some and study for this bar. I will try to post some in the coming months about the process and the change of stress level. One publication that I read suggested 600 hours of studying over the summer, so no matter what plans you have this summer (even if that includes getting or giving a kidney) I am sure that they will be better than my fun!

Right now I feel okay. We started with Criminal Law and generally it was like a review of 1L crim law–no big deal, but tomorrow we are starting Criminal procedure, a class that I have not taken. It should be fun. I will probably be freaking out tomorrow night.
