Thank you.  I didn't have to read the contents of the package from the CA state bar in 2009 because the first thing I saw upon opening the envelope was a yellow notice that included the words: "unsuccessful candidates."

Don't be so hard on yourself.  Magazine article writing is very, very different from law school essays.  The two different formats are on opposite poles. Legal memorandums and law school essays are not composed in intro, body, conclusion structures.

Thank you for the information.  By the way, what color was the paper on which your passing score was printed?

Distance Education Law Schools / Re: Colored Pencils and the Baby Bar

I didn't see anyone using colored pencils when I took the test.  And, I didn't think to bring any myself.  In any case, get so familiar with the multiple choice questions and the essay format that you won't need to use colored pencils.  This means doing at least 2400 multiple choice questions and studying over 100 sample essays.  If you can study all of that material in 30 days, that's great.  But, you might think about taking the test next June.

Knowledge wise, you might be better off studying online first.  You will be ahead of everyone else.  But being gone every Saturday is temporary.  On the other hand, put your kids first.  You won't get that year back.  We are pulling for you.

It appears that you, lawyer in training,  have not had the brick and mortar law school and online law school experiences.  Otherwise, you would not be asking such theoretical questions.  If you read and brief 3000+ contract, criminal law, and tort court opinions, write and re-write 150 contract, criminal law, and tort essays, while studying, at least, 1200 multiple choice questions, it will take you more than one year to remember everything you have read.

Most online law schools are not using Barbri.  They are taking the brick and mortar law school model of case briefing and discussion and are applying it to teaching contract, criminal law, and tort theory.  The average beginning online law school student assumes that by following the online law school method, he or she will pass the FYLSE.  Notice that the person who passed the FYLSE did not depend heavily on Concord law school's model.  He focused primarily on the test itself. 

The FYLSE system is unfair because you cannot pass it the first time by following the brick and mortar law school model.  If online law schools focused only on multiple choice questions and writing essays, 80 percent of all test takers would pass the FYLSE.

I apologize in advance, InterAlia, if you are a  guy.

I didn't get the impression that InterAlia was trying to prove her online training was equal to anything.  She doesn't have anything to prove to anybody.  Online training is more vigorous than brick and mortar training because you have a shorter period of time within which  a lot of material needs to be  absorbed.  And, most law school exams are  open book.  Online law school exams are  not.

Reading this question has reminded me how far I still have to go before I am ready to tackle any law exam.  It is concepts like this post, in Torts, Criminal Law, and Contracts, that take more than a year to absorb; more specifically, all the nuances and details that are embedded in tort, criminal law, and contract theory.  Those of you who have studied law school multiple choice questions know what I am talking about.
