Panic in the streets of Brooklyn

Last night I realized that I am really, really nervous about the bar exam. I manifest my nervousness in a number of unconventional ways, and absolutely none of them are productive. Rather than do the normal thing and up my studying, cut the procrastination, and maybe take a yoga class, I am instead lying awake all night, falling asleep during class, and spending long, beautiful hours researching things I've never before cared about on the Internet. To wit: a transcript of Anderson Cooper's Angelina Jolie interview last night. I don't care about Angelina Jolie. Maybe the only thing I care less about than her stupid illegitimate family is the plight of African orphans with flies on their faces (sorry, orphans; sorry, Sally Struthers). But I am too nervous about the bar . . . to study for the bar.


Although yesterday I did make myself feel better by calling BarBri to complain about Erica Fine, that dumb idiot who "taught" wills and Adrienne Davis, who hemmed and hawed her way through a disorganized trusts outline, as previously bitched about. The hapless phone attendant who took down my complaints had obviously heard from several other stressed-out, borderline psychotic students that day, and breathed deeply through my rant. She summed up, "So basically you feel ripped off."

I thought about it and replied, "Well, yes, honestly, I do. I mean, that's not why I'm calling, I just serously think you should consider, well, I mean, I know it's not your decision, but your bosses should consider never letting either of these two people lecture important, or even not important, subjects again. And yes, I do feel ripped off."

"Mmm-hmm. Well, BarBri values your comments and we hope that you will put them in writing on the course evaluation form. We do take those very seriously. We regret any inconvenience we may have caused you."

"Yeah. Sure thing."

"And by the way," she whispered, "a lot of people have already called to complain about them."

Oh, now I feel better. Thanks. That's great, but they're not going to re-teach me trusts, now are they? ARE THEY?

Well, I guess it's time to hit up some celeb gossip sites.

I applaud you for calling. We need to stand up for ourselves (and our family members' money). Interestingly enough, Erica Fine is "high up" on the BarBri totem pole. She is the Eastern Region Associate Director:

"I try to watch your faces, and I wasn't sure what you were confused about here. When we were talking about adopted children and some people pointed this out to me at the break, we said with the exception that where the child is adopted by the spouse of a natural per-parent -- mom remarries and the new husband adopt the child -- the child and its issue can inherit from the adoptive parent and EITHER natural parent, they don't have to choose. OK? Either meaning BOTH, they can inherit from both natural parents. They don't have to choose between the parents. And a couple of you expressed a question about that at the break, so either meaning both there, arright, they don't make the kids choose".

"If [the spouse is disqualified under DISMAL], Assume the surviving spouse predeceased the dead spouse. Assume that the surviving spouse has predeceased the dead spouse.

Anon: There are 2 candidates standing for election in this district, one Democrat and one Republican. You can vote for either candidate.

Erica: Great! That means I get two votes. I'll vote for the Republicans twice.

Anon: No, I said you can vote for EITHER candidate - don't you understand the word "either"?

Erica: Yes, it means "both". If I can vote for both of them, that means I vote twice. Better to put both votes on the same candidate.


Wife: I think I'm entitled to a share of my husband's estate.

Judge: Ah, you would be, but you're dead.

Wife: How am I dead when I'm standing in front of you, talking?

Judge: Well you abandoned your late husband, so my assumption is that you are dead, and nothing you can say or do will convince me otherwise. You are either a ghost, a hologram, or a figment of my imagination.

It's been two years and I hope you passed with flying colors. I just want to say I hate Erica Fine with the same passion - although differently because I am a law student at a school repping for a competitor bar review program that is WAY superior to Barbri (meaning - taught by competent, experienced attorneys who make a living working for the bar review, not peripherally). She literally is crazy at my school - tears down flyers, breaks the rules by stuffing mailboxes, AND secretly injects money into the school (thinking no one will overhear her talking about it) and ALL of that with the dean's consent - in fact, they work together to kill the competition - yes I go to a corrupt school. For shame.

Here it is February and I am watching a rerun of the same shitty lecture. Erica Fine is not good at all at teaching the material. I wish I had done my research beforehand and went with Pieper or Kaplan as I don't think the canned lectures and horrible customer service I have received are worth the money I paid in. Also, kinda funny how when you criticize Barbri your comments section gets mysteriously spammed as if they are trying to keep people away from the substantive comments.

I passed in one go, so maybe she's not the problem, but an understanding of the topic might be the issue...and i never even took wills in law school PLUS im a foreign attorney...i thought she did a great job teaching us the basics.
