Is anyone planning to attend a law preview course? I've gotten mail from Law Preview and Bar-Bri so far, but am unsure if this is worthwhile. They both cost around $1200 for five days.

I know people who took them and wished they hadn't.Some argue that the courses are useful for teaching you to think like a law student, take notes, etc. I can't speak to other schools, but at Columbia they taught us all that before classes started! And we didn't even have to pay extra! Of course, there are also plenty of free/cheap resources that can give you the kind of advice a course like that would give you.I really don't think it would help!That said, I don't think it would hurt much other than the waste of time and money. so... if you are rich and sitting around on your arse bored all day, then by all means do the prep course. But if $1200 or a week of your time actually means something to you, I'd suggest you steer clear.
Thanks all. I'm really looking forward to taking LEEWS and thought this might be something similar. From the vehement support I've seen on this board for LEEWS, I guess not.
