Yea, cause they are a 3 year bar review course. Tulane, which consistenly ranks higher academically and is much harder to get into, has a slightly lower pass rate, most of the time, because they have two curriculums, civil and common law. Many common law students get job offers in Louisiana and decide to take the bar without the benefits of 3 years of training the test.
I went to LSU undergrad and Tulane Law, took only the civil law curriculum, and passed the bar the first time, like 100% of my classmates who took only the civil law curriculum. Only about 1/2 of the students who took the common law curriculum passed the first time, because they were completely unfamiliar with the terminology and a 4 week bar review course was not enough to get them up to speed.
The statistics are misleading.
