I passed the bar exam on my first try. I was on literally 3 hours of sleep, tops, on the first day of the test. I think it was more like two and a half...
I passed the same bar exam that 48% or so of the students from Harvard Law school failed.
And here I had gone to a so called "unaccredited" (it was accredited but not by the ABA) law school...Imagine that...
It's not about unlocking secret methods or even about wasting your money (or that of your trust fund's) by going to an ivy league school....
It is called hard work, dedication and using your God-given ability.
And, I know those things are not all that popular (and are downright politically incorrect) in these days of bailouts and socialist redistribution.
But, they just plain still work.
