Basically dropping 10 percentage points a year.


Raising standards is all well and good, but do it in the law school admission process. Don't wait until people go through 3 years of school and debt to cockblock them and leave them in a terrible position financially and personally.

Colorado released their results today. 80% overall passage. 84% for first time takers. :rage:

I loved the Ethics questions in the Northeast State exams...yep...took em a few times. Multiple choice blows...always seemed that two choices were correct!

Happened in October 2011 when our results were released as well. Check the fail list first, everyone in the state who has a rooting interest will be checking the pass list.

I tend to agree as well. Certification exams shouldn't have 90% pass rates either.

The problem with your suggestion to make admissions tougher is wrought with politics. Especially because higher education is a bastion of social engineering.

You start raising standards across the board without "loopholes" you're going to get push back.

I've heard some atrocious passage rate predictions from a couple exam graders. Very interested to see the numbers tomorrow. Glad I smoked all 9 exams when it was my turn.

There is a glut if lawyers and raising standards is nice too, but the bar exam is not the ideal place to do it. Not just bc of the time/money invested in law school but someone who fails will almost always simply retake it. Plus a bar exam has even less to do with the practice of law then law school.

Yea the best thing to do is search the fail list first. Otherwise, you'll wait a long time for it to load when the server gets pounded.

Has the list gotten out yet? It always starts getting circulated by back channels before it goes up on the website.

The list has fallen into the wrong hands.
