I was planning on doing it in the hopes of improving my chances for a 1L summer job.
I'm leaning towards patbar.com. I know I won't do it on my own, since I haven't yet in the last month. The way I figure, I can get it new, try it out, and if I don't like it, sell it on ebay and upgrade to PLI or Kayton. Plus if I start now and don't feel ready with patbar, I have enough time to get Kayton and study before the fall.
It's just hard to get reliable reviews of the courses. There's this: http://www.intelproplaw.com/Forum/Forum.cgi
, but it's an internet forum, so who knows how legit reviews are. A few of the people in the know that I've talked to have recommended Kayton, but they had a wee bit more disposable income than I do.
