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.
