Mike Mancini: On Law Preview: It Rocks

by Guest Contributor

If you're anything like me, you were probably a little nervous - and really curious - before you got to law school. If, like me, you're currently waiting for your 1L orientation, you surely know the feeling I'm talking about.

Allow me to allay your fears. Enroll in Law Preview (if you can afford it). The program wrapped up yesterday, and after six straight days of instruction and study I'm overwhelmingly excited, instead of worried, about law school.

I'm also happy to be moving. Traffic in Los Angeles is atrocious. So atrocious, in fact, that I was able to read Palsgraf on the 110. In my car. In park. But I digress.

Little I can imagine would be more comforting than studying the law with students enrolled in Columbia, Chicago, Georgetown, UCLA, Loyola of Los Angeles, Denver, Pepperdine, USC, and Hastings. Learning law is about effort, not brilliance. The idiom is true. But it has to be learned through experience, and for a reasonable price of admission, Law Preview allows you to do exactly that.

I should also mention, I suppose, that the ladies taking the BarBri course on campus were totally hot.

I'm just saying.

Awesome, I'm planning on taking the course in July at Hastings. Thanks for the info!

I've made a bad career decision. I should have started one of these law prep programs to de-mystify the exceedingly uncomplicated process of law school at $2,000 a head.

Meh--I'm signed up for Law Preview at BU the first week in August, but I remain slightly skeptical as to its value. I'm already preparing myself for law school with the primers Atticus Falcoln suggests in his book, "Planet Law School II," and I also have a fair amount of experience reading cases and the like already. I figure it's worth it if it makes me feel more comfortable this Fall, but I fear I may have wasted a not insignificant amount of money.
