Bar Exam Success Stories

People from all walks of life take the bar exam. For your inspiration, I’d like to share their stories and regimen for their bar exam success.

Help is all around you. Many have passed the bar exam before you. Following the paths uncovered by your predecessors obviates the need to reinvent the wheel.

If you put in the work, invest in yourself, and work intelligently, you can be part of the passing groupeven if you think…

  • you’re not “the type of person who’ll be a good lawyer” or
  • you’re not “a naturally good test taker” or
  • you “don’t deserve to pass” (see Steph’s jaw-opening story at the end) or
  • anything that hinges on some BS inherent trait.

This is a learnable skill. No one is born to take the bar, nor is it a life skill. If you can graduate law school, you can pass the bar.
