top schools for bar passage...if you use a flawed methodology

I have to say that using LSAT scores as a predictor for bar passage is also complete bunk.

This forces lower tier schools to the top of the list by their LSAT numbers alone. It also make the t14 schools look incompetent by equating high admission standards to high bar exam results so under the methodology given in this article every t14-20 school should have 100% passage on the bar and anything short would give them a negative score...Whereas lower tier schools have their results grossly inflated by having the predicted score lowered due to their lower admissions standards.

Buyer beware.

Georgia State has a predicted bar passage rate over 6.5% higher than Berkeley...

Lets do what ever we can, as an industry, to prop up low performing law schools...if you don't like the results (US News) just change the methodology (Bloomberg)...if that doesn't work change the goal from employment to bar passage (National Jurist).

in case you do not know about the article from bloomberg
