``I cannot believe what a difference using BarMD has made. The faculty made the process enjoyable, which I did not think was possible! The second time I took the bar, all I wanted was to go in feeling more confident, believe in myself, and to understand more of the law. I got all three of those things from BarMD. I'm so thankful!``- Monique R.
``Maureen gave great essay feedback (how to be concise, how to use ``because,`` how to connect the elements of a claim to the facts). Also she is very positive and reinforcing. She knows we all have burn-out days every now and then, and she reminds you that is normal!``- Caroline E.
``After completing the BarMD course with Kate, I reread my July 2017 essays, and they are garbage compared to the essays I was writing during the BarMD course. Kate made me a better legal writer, not just for writing essays for the bar, but in general.``- Brendan R.

BarMD’s Bar Exam Guarantee

We want all of our students to pass. But things happen. That’s why we offer the bar exam guarantee: If you don’t pass, you’ll get to take the classroom course again for free and get discounted rates on graded essays and one-on-one tutoring. That way, next time, you’ll go in even stronger than before.
