California BAR passage rates

All in all, we're not doing so bad in terms of BAR passage rates. What's even more surprising, if not illustrative of times to come, is how California State CALBAR (non-ABA-Accredited) law school have a passage rate that is growing by the year. Here's the averages:
California Pass Rates by School for all candidates, ABA-Accredited Schools:

Stanford 90.5% (86/95)
Boalt 85.5% (213/249)

First-timer takers, CA Correspondence Schools (Not ABA-Accredited):

Oak Brook 73% (8/11)
Concord 43% (6/14)

I've been putting a lot of faith into Concord Law School for close to a year now. Not only are they a part of Kaplan University, but owned by Kaplan Inc., a company that provides standardized test materials and one of the best LSAT study courses in the world. This article by MSNBC tells a lot about Corcord and how online law school isn't, and has never been, a bad idea. In fact, Corcord graduates seem to be passing the BAR exam as well as many of their traditional counterparts.
