    With my wife having sat for the BAR a few years ago, I don’t think whatever article that might have been included the cost of prep for the exams.

    Then again, she got to take the test all in one go and had almost a guarantee of passing, whereas for us… it’s often years in the making and a moving target to boot.

    The article parallels closely with my experiences and it is too bad they do not also relate it back to the earning potential, starting salary and typical maximums of different professions. I am amazed that people still enter the profession let alone go into that major.
