fwiw, i think bar passage rate is a bad way to gauge quality of LS, although it may help indicate the intelligence and work ethic of students. that's all.

LS doesn't prep you for the bar, you prep yourself with bar/bri etc-- stanford kids and cal western kids prepare the same way, just like yale kids and quinnipiac kids. if you study your butt off and you're smart, you'll pass. if you fail you really can't blame your profs. it isn't their job.

sorry for the rant, i just think that statistic gets too much attention.

here here

and besides, a % of yale students dont pass the bar, and a % of ghetto-ass univerity law school (G-AU) students DO pass, so passage doesnt really quantify quality of school.

in 2004 a higher % of hastings grads passed the bar than usc grads, but i think most people would pick usc over hastings...

Bump.

It is important also to look at how many students took the bar, etc.  Loyola had twice as many students taking the bar in July 2004 than did Pepperdine.  It is all relative. ;)

bump just means the poster wants this thread back at the top for people to see so they are "bumping" it to the front of the "latest posts" line

I thought it was so that it would be saved to your unread post section so you can comeback to it later on.

Maybe you are right and they write tag when they just want it on their list.

"bump" is to bump the thread to the top of the list for more responses
"tag" is to mark the thread so it'll show up in unread posts
"hth" is "hope this helps"

hth! :)
