Hey All. I graduated college in 1995 so I am nearly nine years away from having any kind of academic discipline. I worked mostly in computer technical support since then but also did time as a swim instructor and a taste tester for Guinness (seriously! no joke!). I will begin law school in the fall 2004 semester and I'm looking for any help I can get to prepare.
Can anyone who attended BAR/BRI, Law Preview, or any other prep course offer any thoughts on it?
* Did you find that the course helped you know what to expect, how to prepare, etc.?
* Are there other courses like these that might be useful also?
* Can you honestly recommend them to an incoming, non-traditional 1L?
I would prefer thoughts from actual attendees of these courses but all opinions are welcome.
