Your grades matter more than the major.

There are firms that specialize in aviation law. If that's a way you want to go, start looking for those and make contacts.

When you get to the bar you'll know the difference.

Thanks for the answer, but it's a bit late for me.

Actually, after the graded essays in BarBri, I did Essay Advantage. For me, I think it was helpful. If nothing else, having someone look over additional essays was a good thing. Then again, because they're both affiliated, the BarBri folks probably scare most people to try to get them to take the EA course.

You forgot the main rule for bar essays...state a rule of law. If you don't know the rule, make one up.

Bar Exam Preparation / Re: MBE prep courses - recommendations?

I liked the PMBR classes, but then again, I do better w/a lecture than self-study. The 6-day PMBR mixes questions with lecture. The 3-day goes over one MBE and more hits the high points.

For myself, I thought PMBR was a lot better than BarBri on the MBE stuff, but ymmv.

I wouldn't worry. Just admit whatever and, if they write asking for more info, give them more info. You may have the "you have to go before the committee" experience, but I'm not sure at what level that happens. I know of people with arrest records, another with a DUI during law school, and all passed char & fitness.

For Con Law - Chemerinsky's treatise.

As for the rest, depends on what kind of help you might need.

Hey, if it works for him, all the best. Maybe he can get someone to study for him, too.

Doesn't seem like it's working for him, though.

I've heard of a source of information but it's sort of a secret -- only a couple people know of it. It's called the Internet.

Watch "Thank You For Smoking." It's got a good example about directing discussions and refocusing arguments. And it's funny.

Watch "Legally Blonde" because it's funny and it's got Reese.

Otherwise, enjoy yourself.

UCC require perfect tender which would cover quality/quantity (although the former is a subjective measure to some extend).
