Well, Whittier is actually making strides to change their numbers. They let in lots of students that can't get in anywhere else and give them a chance, but you still have to weed out the ones who just aren't cut out for it. If someone knows they barely got into law school then they need to bust their ass to stay in or know that they might be wasting their money on a year of school and won't be back the next year.
Like I said though, Whittier has decided to attack this problem with a new Academic Success Program that runs all of first year, as well as offering a third year bar review course to increase their bar passage rate. I think last year was the first year all these programs were in place, so we'll see how their numbers change over the next couple of years. I think they're definitely making the effort by offering all of the programs the ASP now offers, but the people have to go take advantage of it. The school is NEVER going to just hold your hand and walk you through everything, the student still has to make an effort. I do applaud their new efforts though, I think it'll make a difference in their numbers. This summer's bar scores will hopefully show improvement, as this is the first year 3Ls have had the long bar review course to take at the school.
