Financing the test was just part of it. I live in Florida. I didn't have another 600 for the flight and hotel to California for the test after June 2009.
I found the multiple choice questions the most difficult. However, I simply wasn't as prepared as I should have been. For example, in all the essays, it was easy to spot the issues. But, I hadn't remembered any of the legal rules. I knew what a contract was. But, I would say something like: "A contract is an agreement between two or more people who bargain for mutual promises." I should have written: "A contract is an agreement between two or more parties creating obligations that are enforceable or otherwise recognizable at law." I knew what battery, assault, theft, larceny, burglary, rape, murder, etc were in plain English; not in the terms that judges use in court opinions. This is what the examiners were looking for. I realized too late that my essay needed to read like a court opinion, not like a college essay (even if the structure of the essay was in the IRAC format).
That is probably why the multiple choice questions were so difficult for me. I really needed to have the black letter law memorized; not just know something about each rule of law.
The test administrators are probably a little more lenient now. Anyway, more Concord students pass than students from any other online law school. I looked it up.
I will think about enrolling in Concord.
