Truly, I do not know where to begin. I guess the very beginning on what I first believed JD Advising to be, and then finding out it was even better than I could of imagined a company to be. Like most recent law students, JD Advising was a site that would pop up frequently when I would google whatever stress / issue law school was providing. Naturally, those changed every week and so I enjoyed the perspective / insight their blogs provided. Fast forward to graduation, I spent my last two years of law school as a Barbri rep on campus ready to attack the bar exam. Welp, after a full 3 months of non-stop obsessive studying completing 100% of Barbri’s materials, I failed. After a month of being down, I knew I had to get back up. A good friend told me about his experience with JD and how it totally changed his outlook and approach to the Bar. That same day I called and it was the last day to enroll in the UBE prep course. My only other option was taking Barbri’s class again for free. However, I knew doing that would not propel me to where I needed to be. I took the leap of faith by signing on with JD and it’s easily been the best decision I could of ever made. Rosie, and the whole JD staff have been incredible. JD is less like a bar prep company and more like a family. The studying materials are far and away better than any company I have ever seen (Barbri, Themis, and Kaplan). Additionally, their approach of quality over quantity made me go from learning for the exam, to learning for my career. Overall, my MBE score jumped 20 points, and my MEE score jumped over 10 points. – Anthony
Preparing for the bar exam can be an extremely stressful, anxious experience.
However, JD Advising’s course changes this narrative. You are prepared so extensively in this course by taking simulated practice essay exams and working through timed multiple choice questions every week, that you feel as if you are taking the bar exam long before you actually do.
When the time comes to sit for the bar exam, the routine takes over as soon as the timer begins and your mind is calm and clear.
JD Advising provides incredible outlines, access to vital study materials, real-time lectures, and enthusiastic support – all playing integral parts in assisting you in preparing for the most important exam of your legal career. – Amelia (first-time taker)
JD Advising’s UBE course is par excellence. I cannot thank their team enough, especially Heather, Meagan, and Rosie. I wish I had known of JD Advising coming out of LL.M., I wouldn’t have chosen any other commercial company.
I failed with Kaplan and Barbri, and after that I knew I needed some handholding throughout this journey. JD Advising met this standard of mine. The study materials are far superior and easy to understand and memorize, the quality of instruction is excellent, and the focus was more on memorization and quality practice rather than quantity. The course was not at all overwhelming unlike Barbri. The weekly quizzes were fun. The essay feedback was fantastic; I got better with my writing each week. The approach to tackling MPTs was amazing, and I got better at them too each week.
Heather and Meagan are by far the best tutors I’ve had for bar prep. They used to take time out to answer our questions in class and would make sure we understood the subject matter before proceeding on.
Rosie guided me to choose the best course option tailored to my needs, she was always prompt in replying to my numerous emails, and she would often check in on me.
Thank you JD Advising for everything you’ve done for me! I’ve received a score that qualifies me to transfer it to other UBE jurisdictions! – FD
I learned about JD Advising my first week of law school and knew it was the right prep course for me. The outlines, class instructions and practice essays are specifically tailored for the Michigan Bar Exam and the practice essay exam simulated the first half of the essay exam perfectly.
Also, the practice multiple choice questions were an excellent help in preparing for that part of the bar exam. The material is easy to follow, the in-class instruction was great and the memorization techniques were extremely helpful.
Not only does JD Advising provide study material, it also helps with day-of preparation and really helped calm my nerves on the day of the exam.
I was able to pass the bar exam on the first attempt and there is no doubt in my mind that JD Advising was on top of the list of reasons why I was able to do that. – Dan (first-time taker)
There is no doubt that the bar exam will be one of the most stressful experiences of your life. I was very pleased with Jd Advising’s products and services while studying for the July 2019 Michigan Bar Exam. The materials were condensed, clear, and concise. The in-class instruction was very helpful in understanding the material and navigating the outlines. If I had any questions, they were answered in a timely fashion. Everyone at JD Advising is friendly, encouraging, and there to support you with your bar exam success. I could not have asked for a better bar studying experience. – Lindsay (first-time taker)
I had taken the bar exam 2 times prior to utilizing JD Advising for bar prep and I honestly came from a place of complete hopelessness as my score had only increased by a few points. Regardless of my diligent preparation with the well known commercial courses that everyone uses, it wasn’t enough to move the needle over the line. I had always referred to JD Advisings’ blogs for advice throughout law school and the bar so I decided to pick up the phone and give them a call after having failed the second time. As discouraged as I was to give the exam another try, I was instantly reassured by their alternative approach. Their materials and outlines were an extremely useful tool, containing everything you need to know in a way that is easily digestible and the furthest from overwhelming. Additionally, If you are someone who learns better one on one, I strongly recommend Meagan’s tutoring services. I struggle with a learning disability and she was extremely patient and helpful. She will give you a step by step breakdown in conquering both portions of the exam in a customized way that works specifically for you. Aside from knowing the law like the back of her hand, she was very helpful when it came to scheduling and time management. I passed by a wide margin and went up 29 points! – Ashley
