Taft, ALU, Concord
« on: July 24, 2012, 12:18:44 AM »
I went back to 2007 FYLSE to the present, and it appears that Taft beat out Concord by a tad.  I looked at who had the highest percentage for "1st time takers" and the highest percentage under the column "All".

I did the same with the CA Bar Exam and Concord students clearly our performed Taft and ALU students in having the highest passing percentage rate when considering both columns, First Time Takers and Repeaters.

Yes, many will try and few will succeed.

So you have passed the Baby Bar, how about the CA Bar Exam?

I would recommend Taft, they have a good track record for an online school.   I understand they still offer the correspondence program option which is great for self learners who can memorize mass quantities of material. Concord on the other hand likely has the most elaborate online courses.  The odds are still bad either way unless the student is a paralegal or has some acquaintance with the legal system on a regular basis. I likely squeeked by because I worked in the juvenile court system and social services.

I have instructed in Masters in Diplomacy, Masters in Legal Studies, and Masters in Public Administration programs.
