Monday Morning Message 4.1.24 The Secret to Getting Ahead

“The secret to getting ahead is getting started.”  - Mark Twain

This is a message to our students who will graduate in less than 60 days. The Ohio Bar Exam is not until July 2024, so it may be surprising to some that this morning’s message is about preparing for that exam. But the 2-day exam is probably the most difficult test you’ll ever take, the stakes are high, and there isn’t much time between graduation in May and the bar exam in July.

It’s not too early to prepare. Studying for the bar exam is a marathon, not a sprint. There are no shortcuts.
