Working 3 Hrs/Day Before Bar: Need Advice
« on: February 05, 2010, 09:11:29 PM »
I plan on taking the July Bar.  

I really want to accept this part-time
summer job (3-4 hrs/day).  

This job will not allow any days off
before the Exam. :(

Because I'll have ~ 4 months to study,
I think my substantive preparation will be okay.

However, I am wondering if there is a "mental" or
"zone" preparation in the final week that I will
be missing out on by working 3 hours/day?

3 hours a day? You probally spend that much time watching TV, on the internet(here and email) and mabey even a few "unmentionable" activities ::)  Just cut back on those and you'll be able to do that plus some. I didn't even know shifts came that small, who's it with?

Lol, it's with a summer camp.
So you think I'm overreacting right? (PLEASE SAY YES)

depends, how much commute time and would you have to stay overnight if its a camp?

If not and a short drive, then yeah it should be ok. Especially if you have fun at the job anyways. I take it you'd be a counsler for kids? If so think of it as a "part time parent" that you can walkaway from. I have a 2 year old at home and trust me, sometimes I wish it was only a 3 hour shift.  :P :
