Could you imagine if every ABA graduate were assessed on the same level as Mitchell was in Mass? How many would not be allowed to take the bar in their state? Either say the education is good or not, but to say it really depends on your grades, your participation in extracurricular, how quickly passed the bar, shows a complete discord.

3. How does this compare with other schools?
Answer: Pretty well. On the last Cal Bar exam, 3 of 5 Stanford students passed the exam. Only 38% of USC law school grads passed the same exam. UCLA was the only California school that posted an exceptional pass rate on the Cal Bar at 79%. Cooley, an ABA school in Michigan ,recorded a 0 out of 22 on the same test; no Cooley grad passed the Cal Bar. What does that say about Concord? They are doing pretty well at this point. The Cal Bar seems to be a particularly tough exam.

HOW could your data be so wrong?! In 2004, the bar passage rate in California for first time takers for the following schools was as follows: Stanford - 90%; USC - 79%; UCLA - 89%.

You will NEVER see Stanford, USC, UCLA or any other upper-tier law schools with passage rates as low as you claim.

As far as your claim that California has a difficult bar exam, let's be real: the low passage rate in California is in large part attributable to types of students taking the exam...you have a lot of sub-par students going to sub-par law schools in California, which skews the bar results downward.
Watch your facts before you offer an online informercial again. (And you may want to mention the gaudy 41% passage rate for first time takers of the CA bar for Concord through July '06.)
Actually he was correct for the February 2004 exam.  Go to http://admissions.calbar.ca.gov/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=0T9sI2mkkqo%3d&tabid=2269 and you will see 3 of 5 for first time takers for Stanford, 3 of 8 for first time takers from USC and UCLA as 11 of 14.
