If you look at US News, USC's bar passage rate is less than UC davis.

Funny to see USF so low ranked on US News yet much higher on the Bar Passing rate, but they do have  smaller class, maybe that has something to do with it...

sometimes those academic types never leave their ivory tower- and perform poorly when held up to the standards of the private sector.

A little off topic of UCLA being #1, but I thought law schools had to have a bar passage rate above 50% to keep their ABA accreditation. If this is the case, then why hasn't Thomas Jefferson been put on ABA probation?
