Speaking of Cooley, their students CA bar pass rate has been LOWER than Concord Law School and Northwestern California University both of which arenon-aba approved online law schools.
Hmmmm....I don't know much about CA law schools, but I'm wondering if the fact that CA has something like 17 or 18 schools might have something to do with the bar passage rate...Sure, they have USC, Stanford, and the UC's, but I have to imagine that a lot of those other schools are tier 4s with lower passage rates that drag down the average.....
CA is widely considered to be the second hardest bar exam after NY. Apparently, either last year or the year before, the Bar passage rate went up to 51%. The state Bar announced this year that they're going to make the test harder and get the passage rate back under 50%. I was shocked when I read that. Apparently PMBR was hiring people who used to make questions for the Bar exam. In their books, PMBR have questions that were similar to the Bar exam. They are being sued by the Bar Examiners right now for the 3rd or 4th time because of the similar questions. Also apparently, CA thinks PMBR might have contribute to high bar passage rate.

I think the CA bar is the hardest bar. it takes the greatest amount of raw score points to pass while testing similar subject matter.
