On a related note, any estate planning attorneys in Venice, FL area who would be open to sharing a conference room and co-counseling with an experienced estate planning attorney who spends several months a year in Florida?

Did the same thing for the February bar. I studied thurs-sun for 16 weeks or so.. went through the outline for the MEE topics and gave at least 1 week to study every topic. Then gave the last few weeks leading up to the test to review and practice. Good luck!

Did the same thing in February of last year. Probably started in like November or early December and tried to do a 10-15 hours a week. Did more towards the end but was able to pass with that on the first try.
