Why enroll in BARBRI Bar Review during 2L year (or even earlier)

Share This Article:

“Why would I enroll in a bar review course months, or years, before I plan on actually studying for the bar exam?”

This is an individual decision, but there are plenty of very good reasons to consider enrolling in a bar prep course as a 2L student (or even in first year). While you’ll utilize the majority of your BARBRI Bar Review course later, there are components you can use earlier… some even right away.

Instant access to BARBRI 2L/3L Mastery

We often hear from students who tell us they wish they would have known about the online, on-demand BARBRI 2L/3L Mastery expert lectures, detailed outlines, and multiple-choice practice and essay practice questions much sooner. BARBRI 2L/3L Mastery covers subjects that many students find challenging during 2L and 3L year, like Evidence, Taxation, Corporations, Wills & Trusts, Secured Transactions, Criminal Procedure, Constitutional Law and Family Law. By utilizing 2L/3L Mastery, you can make your transition from 2L to 3L year much easier. You get extra help where and when you need it to boost your confidence in the subject matter.

The 2L/3L Mastery Personal Study Plan is organized and segmented by subject and sub-topic. For each subject, watch on-demand lectures by renowned experts who focus on efficiently teaching you critical rules and elements. Lectures are divided into easily accessible topics so it’s easy to watch and review the sections that supplement what you’re learning in class. Efficient outlines are also included for each subject as well as multiple-choice practice questions that track back to each lecture topic so you can apply and assess what you have learned.

In addition to 2L/3L Mastery, when you enroll in BARBRI Bar Review earlier, you get first access to BARBRI Early Start and Bar Review Baseline when they become available for your course administration (typically September prior to your exam). You’ll also get first notifications on book availability, typically in March prior to the July exam and September prior to the February exam.

Save a lot of money, pay over time

Some people still think that the longer they wait, the better bar review deal they’ll get. Over the past several years, this has not proven to be true. In fact, the people who enroll early secure the best price and promotions and protect themselves against future price adjustments. There are no enrollment contracts or commitments, so it’s risk-free to secure a current BARBRI Bar Review tuition and begin using the resources available to you.

Plus, the earlier you enroll, the more time you have to spread out a custom installment payment plan or to finance your tuition. With a BARBRI custom installment plan, you simply pay the minimum required down payment at enrollment then split up the remainder of your tuition into custom payments. No credit check is required and no interest is applied. You can select the months you pay and how much you pay each month. Your total tuition just needs to be paid in full per the payment deadlines prior to the beginning of your BARBRI Bar Review course.

If you have a social security number and want to consider course financing, many BARBRI Bar Review tuition types allow you to “Finance with Affirm” during or after enrollment. You will begin making payments immediately to Affirm, but the entire balance of your tuition does not need to be paid prior to your course starting or ending. Learn more about Financing with Affirm.

With both the BARBRI Custom Installment Plan and the Finance with Affirm options, you get access to all of the bar review resources mentioned above as soon as they are available.

If you plan to bill your employer

What if I plan to bill my employer in the future but I’m not sure yet. Should I still enroll?

Unless you know for sure that a firm is paying directly for your course, securing the lowest rate tuition and just paying the minimum balance due is the best way to ensure you pay the lowest price for BARBRI Bar Review.

If your firm ends up paying BARBRI directly, we’ll help you get that set up and transferred. Best of all, you’ll get access to all of the resources mentioned above.

If you’re going into public interest

What if I want a chance to apply for the BARBRI Public Interest scholarship in the future. Should I still enroll?

If you plan on going into Public Interest, check first to see if a BARBRI Public Interest Scholarship is open for your class. Even if a scholarship is not yet open for your bar exam administration, you should definitely secure the lowest rate tuition as soon as possible. This will ensure, at a minimum, that your tuition doesn’t increase and guarantee that you receive priority consideration when a BARBRI Public Interest Scholarship does open for your class.

If you are selected, the scholarship award will simply be applied to your existing account. In the event you are not selected for a scholarship, you will be able to cancel your enrollment and have no further obligation.
