Not sure what BCIT is, but you might want to explore They are the main body that govern law school admissions materials and they'll give you a good list of what is required.

Current Law Students / Re: How bad of trouble am I in?

Bankruptcy isn't the end of the world these days as it was a few years back. I've always been of the school that you should disclose because non-disclosure is pretty brutal. I know 1 person who disclosed his foreclosure and passed C&F fine. I know someone else, in a similar situation, who did not because he failed to disclose. It really DOES matter. They care more about you lying to the bar than the actual issue. I don't know why people are telling you to drop out, but I'd consider getting a hold of an ethics professor/lawyer to ask advice of.

Bar Exam Preparation / Silent Timers for the Bar
« on: July 04, 2011, 11:44:19 AM »
Anyone know of a good silent timer for the bar? A search on Amazon just gave me a bunch of timers and nothing tells you whether they are silent. Any help would be appreciated. Also, I don't think I have time to go and disable one so a timer that is silent out of the box would be best. Thanks!

I'm doing barbri right now and a lot of the stuff they're making  me do seems like a waste of time. What would you guys have done differently other than skipping lecture? Also, how much time did you guys devote to each aspect of the study?

Would you suggest going to preview week or just going to the regular classes?

Bar Exam Preparation / Bar Bri Exam Schedule Help?
« on: May 16, 2011, 09:24:25 PM »
Okay, so I'm signed up for the Barbri prep for the July bar. They've given me a schedule and it hasn't been all that helpful in charting out a specific schedule for me to follow. e.g. stuff to learn by X, topics to cover when not in class, and when to do what. Do you guys have any good sources for where to find a more specific study schedule I can then mod?

in addition to reading the exams, I would highly suggest reading the answers to those exams. Just knowing HOW an exam answer is crafted was huge for me. If you can't get a hold of one from your professor, I suggest reading the Acing series. It gives a pretty good breakdown of how you analyze an exam thoroughly. In the end though, it is just chugging along and learning how to test. Meet with your professors as often as they will let you, and bring them practice exams you've written. You'd be amazed at how much it helps.
