I know most people won't feel this way, but I think BarBri is a major waste of money. I think the market value for the program is more like 500 bucks (not 3000), but most students feel like they have no other choice. There are alternatives out there, but it's a risky gamble to pay someone else.
I think BarBri offers some great things (good books, a great schedule at a good pace, and some valuable tips and feedback), but they just waste so much of your time.
I feel like many people justify it by saying, "if this wasn't the best way to do it then BarBri wouldn't do it this way."
I suppose some people make that same argument about the socratic method.
If I could do it over again, I would buy the barbri books off craigslist and just study myself. Then I would have spent the $3000 on a vacation after I passed the bar.
