USF has a 20% attrition GGU has a 24% attrition rate. For first year roughly equal in my opinion.
They did just update the LSAC info and GGU's bar passage rate went from 77% to 68% and USF is at 82% so that is a significant 68% compared to 82% and they both had approximately the same people reporting. How much does the bar passage rate reflect the quality of the school? It is hard to say because it is a standardized test, but I think a school does fail a student if they grant them a J.D. and they don't pass the bar.
That is an objective report though and if U.S. News put more than 2% consideration into their rankings for bar passage I would take them a lot more seriously. At the end of the day if I go to Harvard or Cooley and don't pass the bar I would be kind of po'ed, because neither school should have let me graduate if I couldn't pass the bar.
ROFL I didn't even know USF had a law school. Why did I say UF and you go find some school that's not even part of the conversation (and apparently for good reason) and start using that to make your point?
Law schools aren't here to make people pass bars. Their job is to award JD's to those who have learned the curriculum satisfactorily.
BarBri's job is to get people to pass the bar. :-)
