Title: BarBri Rate Lock In
Post by: Ninja1 on September 30, 2008, 09:22:55 AM
Is it worth it to do the rate “lock in” thing with BarBri? Basically, how much should I expect the course fee to go up over the next 3 years? The reason I ask is that I could pay the $100 now to lock in the current rate, but I could really use the money right now and am wondering what kind of a hit I would be looking at down the line, in people's experiences.

Also, right now, the current fee is just a touch under $3k.

Well... if business picks back up in the next 3 years, I suppose it's not a horrible bet.

Something to note though, BriBar holds really helpful review sessions which you can only go to if you're in BriBar.

Between last year and this year, Bar/Bri's tuition rates went up $200 or more across the board. If that holds true for the three years you are in school, yes it will be worth it ($600 v. $100).

I went ahead and signed up the the last day before they stopped promising the rate lock in. Damn them.
