On Friday night at 1AM, I ran into one of my classmates a Wicker Park hookah lounge. I’m pretty sure this guy was at the very top of our graduating class.
Here’s the story he recounted to me:
“My cousin took the bar last year. He said he did barely any studying in June. He constantly left the BarBri review lectures early, and got wasted every night. A week before the exam, reality hit; he got serious and spent every single hour studying. And guess what? He passed. He told me this: “If you just study for one hour every day, you’ll be fine.”
And now, a somewhat related statistic: Last year, of all the students in the upper-half of DePaul’s graduating class (of 220 or so), all but six passed the bar.
So what the hell am I supposed to do with this anecdote and statistic? Using them as an excuse to study less?
