Yes, no statistics though. Really interested to see how my school (Texas A&M School of Law) fared amongst the others. So far, of the people that I know of in my December 2016 graduating class that took the Texas bar for the first time in Feb 17, I have an unofficial pass rate of 78.78% (26 out of 33).

Here are the National average Bar Passage Rates from 2007 - Current day.

2007 ~ 67%
February ~ 55%
July ~ 73%

2008 ~ 71%
February ~ 58%
July ~ 76%

2009 ~ 68%
February ~ 53%
July ~ 74%

2010 ~ 68%
February ~ 56%
July ~ 73%

​2011 ~ 69%
​February ~ 60%
July ~ 73%

​2012 ~ 67%
February ~ 55%
July ~ 71%

​2013 ~ 68%
​February ~ 58%
July ~ 72%

2014 ~ 64%
​February ~ 57%
July ~ 67%

​​2015 ~ 59%
February ~ 52%
July ~ 63%

​2016 ~ 58%
February ~ 49%
July ~ 62%


I cant be the only person who thinks it was strange that the national average sat on 67-68% for several years. Nor the only person who finds it questionable that in 3 years, it suddenly dropped 10%.

I cannot count a lot of the states (they don't say how many students sat and passed), but for the 19 states I could count for February 2017 the average was 50.01%.

Do you by chance have a cut and paste of the pass rates of all the states that have released statistics so far for Feb 2017? I think your stats have been great so far in helping motivate some of my friends to begin prepping for July as I've been using them on my facebook.

This thread has been my favorite on TLS as I enjoy seeing the stats.

I have a map and list of pass result stats here. I'm getting ready to make a new list for just 2017 in a couple days since almost everyone is out now. Wish we had Illinois since it's such a big one. :( Thanks for the kind words! I wish everyone great luck on July!!

What you've compiled is great!
