New York Bar Passage Rates

Postby dingbat » Wed Dec 12, 2012 9:14 am

Highest pass rates, in order, are:
Stanford: 100% #2
Yale: 97.06% #1
Columbia (96%) #4
NYU (95%) #6
Harvard: 94.6% #3
Chicago: 91.67% #5
Cornell (92%) #14
Fordham (91%) #29
Cardozo (87%) #56
Brooklyn (85.5%) #65
CUNY (83.5%) T3
Buffalo (83%) #82
St. John (83%) #79
Hofstra (82%) #89
Albany (81.5%) T3
Syracuse (80%) #96
Pace (78%) T3
Touro 74% T4
NYLS 70% T4

despite having the largest number of first-time candidates among the 15 law schools—464, compared to 414 last year—Crowell maintains that New York Law has adhered to the same standards for granting admission.
(also known as "no standards")

if anyone has this data for 2012 from any other schools, please let me know and I'll update

85% for first time takers- so NYLS is still not out of compliance with ABA regs even for one year.

FTFY.

HYS and the other C would all be in the top five ten if they were on there. Harvard and Chicago would probably be contesting Columbia for first, if I'm not mistaken.

Edit: You can't have nine schools in the top five.

Thanks for the correction. I'm willing to accept HYSCCN as the top 6, subject to evidence to the contrary

I think Cornell might beat out some of the out-of-state schools, including Yale.

I was misinformed. Here's the current stats from ABA on NY BAR pass rates:

Stanford: 100%
Yale: 97.06%
Harvard: 94.6%
Chicago: 91.67%

I dont know how recent this information is but this looks at a broader range of schools:

again I didn't look very hard but I couldn't find the source for their sources so I couldn't find how recent this information is. Just from comparing it might be from last year.

I found that when I was looking up info for more schools. It's a few years old, though I don't recall the exact year

Its weird that it doesn't have Stanford. Is this because most of Stanford Graduates are sticking in California? Also it doesn't seem like there is much change in percentages when comparing with the original post.

It's from 2010. There's not a big difference in the top few schools, but a much bigger difference lower down.

I'm gonna work on the basis that Stanford doesn't send a lot of students to NY
