If You Have to Pay for Bar Prep On Your Own, This Could Be A Great Deal

Some few 3Ls are lucky enough to have their firms pay for all of their bar fees - not just the hefty 400+ dollars it costs to take the exam, but also for their entire BarBri bar review course, which can cost well over $ 3,000. Of course, as we have noted, there are other options out there now besides BarBri - but BarBri is the most expensive, and therefore (probably) the best.

For those who will be footing the bill on their own and are "freaked out" about it, this email from PILA might be of interest:

This would be a terrible bet.

I won this one year and it was a hassle to get BarBri to pay up.
