Well, actually, on the July 2004 Texas Bar Exam, UT was number one. Baylor came in second.

Congrats to Tech, but keep in mind that the February bar is an odd bar exam to take for most graduates.  Also, Tech had a large number of retakes per capita and an unfortunate pass rate there.

Serious props to Baylor on their continued great rate.

Texas and Baylor were pretty much a dead heat in 2004 for passage rates.

I think you give credit where credit is due, and Texas Tech had the best pass rate, hands down. Texas Tech was Number One this time around on the statistic that mattered.

Now if A & M could just make a law school this would be like a Big 12 South Matchup!

God Bless Texas!

Oh no! Not Aggie lawyers!!! The law field in Texas (as in the state of Texas) really would turn into a good ol' boys club!!!

But I guess if A&M ever did get a law school it could just be one more thing that UT was better at than them...
