If you take a good prep course, do what the say, study for 2 months straight, there is no reason why you can't pass the bar.
Moreover, Howard attracts an overwhelming amount of minorities. Minorities by and large, statistically, have had a harder time passing the bar exam. To fault Howard in this respect is a bit unfair. Moreover, the NY bar (along with CA), is the hardest bar exam in the country. Its not like Howard grads are out their failing the CT bar en mass..
The NY Bar is one of the hardest, that's very true. The state's average passage rate is about 80%. But even taking that into account, 60% is still horrible.
