California is not that hard? Look at the data. I'm not saying other places like DC and Nevada don't have difficult bar exams as well, but California's must be much harder than average. (Even the format is very different)
. Keeping in mind that CA has the toughest bar exam in the nation...
Why? Because so many people fail? You don't think the fact that so many people fail has something to do with the fact that virtually every other state requires ABA accreditation?
Seems like the bar passage rates for most of the schools in CA is 80% or higher.
This red herring that California has the hardest bar exam simply because so many people fail it doesn't really bear scrutiny.
The reality is that California lets a whole lot of people sit for the bar exam who are grossly unqualified in most other states.
A few of them pass, and that's great. But let's not delude ourselves into thinking that so many fail because the bar exam is so much harder. It's far more likely that so many fail because they shouldn't be sitting for the bar exam in the first place and in most other states, they wouldn't be allowed to.
