Online Law Schools / Re: Baby bar test scores
« on: May 25, 2015, 11:12:23 PM »
Does anyone have a nice compact chart of bar (and/or baby bar) pass rates for the DL schools?

I know that I can open the exam results one at a time and copy/paste all of them into a text file, but I'd rather not recreate the wheel if someone can point me to one.

I keep wondering if there is a, sort of, backwards way to go about this.

Why is California the only state that will allow a non-traditional student take the bar exam?  Oregon is right up the road. Nevada is next door.  Why shouldn't they (or any other state) simply reconfigure their rules, conforming them to Cali?  Seems like it would bring money and tourism and renewed interest to any state that would try it.

Does anyone know of a movement afoot in any other state to make this a reality?

Hi, I've heard something about this NOVUS law school joke (I don't remember which website), but I don't get it.

Can somebody fill me in, please?

Don't keep us in suspense too long.

Online education is in its infancy, and the success stories keep the rest of us motivated.

Hello.  Thus begins $0.02 worth of info from a newbie

I've been looking over these various issues just lately, focusing almost entirely on California schools as they allow you to sit for the bar (and baby bar, of course) exam.  There are the seven currently "registered, unaccredited, correspondence schools" on the  California Bar website: [There is additional information on "registered, unaccredited, distance" schools, but I've not researched the distinction.]  Here is what I found regarding the prices, but take it with a grain of salt, please; I'm not sure if they include fees or books or whatever.

American International School of Law: $2900 for the first year, $2000 / yr thereafter
California Southern University: approx $25,000 in monthly pmts., but with "a remaining balance" at the end
International Pacific School of Law: approx. $29,000 total
Northwestern California University School of Law: $2850 / yr
Oak Brook College of Law: $5000 / yr
Taft Law School: $330.00 per unit, $7920 / yr (?)
University of Honolulu School of Law: $3000 / yr

For what it's worth, some of the latest bar Pass Rates that I found indicated that 30% - 50% pass rates for Northwestern and Oak Brook, slightly lower for Concord and Taft.  The rest have fairly low rates, but to be fair the numbers are fairly small, like say 1 (one) test taker, so the percentage may be 0 or 100.

Hope this helps.  Next up for me: finish the undergrad work first, then take this step.
