Crack Open a Window: Florida Coastal School of Law Grads Had a 25% Passage Rate on February 2017 Florida Bar Exam
Booyah: On April 11, 2017, Staci Zaretsky posted an ATL entry labeled “Most Law Schools Did Horrendously On This State’s Bar Exam.” Take a look at the following portion:
“As we mentioned earlier today, the results from Florida’s administration of the February 2017 bar exam are out, and they are not pretty. In fact, the passage rate on Florida’s winter bar is now at its lowest point since the February 2009 exam (and possibly even earlier, but that is the final date for which scores are listed on the Florida Board of Bar Examiners website). The state’s overall passage rate was 57.7 percent, and some law schools posted passage rates that barely hovered around the 50 percent mark. One law school’s passage rate was far, far lower than that.
Which schools performed the best on the test, and which schools performed the worst?
Here are the results for all Florida law schools for the February 2017 exam:
As you can see, Miami and Florida International blew away the competition, with passage rates of 80.6 percent and 78.9 percent, respectively. Congratulations to graduates of both law schools. On the flip side of the coin, hovering around or below a 50 percent passage rate are law schools like Barry (51.5 percent), Florida A&M (46.2 percent), Nova Southeastern (55 percent), St. Thomas (44.7 percent), and Stetson (51.3 percent). The school with the worst performance of all was Florida Coastal, which posted a 25 percent passage rate. Recall that its sister school, Charlotte Law, posted a 25 percent passage rate on the February 2017 administration of the North Carolina bar exam. Who knew two Infilaw schools could produce terrible twin passage rates?” [Emphasis mine]
Still want to take the plunge, waterhead?!?! The fact that this commode and DOZENS OF OTHERS are allowed to operate and take public money shows beyond any doubt that the “higher education” scam is alive and well in the U.S. Who wouldn’t want to take on mortgage-sized sums of NON-DISCHARGABLE debt – for a 25 percent chance of becoming a licensed attorney?
Other Coverage: On April 10, 2017, the Orlando Sentinel published a piece from reporter Gabrielle Russon, under the headline “Which law schools had the highest bar passage rates?” Read this opening:
“The bar passage rates at Barry University improved significantly from a year ago while Florida A&M University’s dipped 11 percentage points, according to test results released Monday.
However, law students at the two Orlando law schools were both less likely to pass the bar exam than test-takers statewide, according to a news release from the Florida Board of Bar Examiners.
The state agency released the passage rates for the 1,881 students who took the test for the first time in Tampa in February.
About 58 percent passed statewide, the results showed.” [Emphasis mine]
Yes, that is highly impressive! Spending three years of your life – and accumulating outrageous, idiotic sums of student debt in the process – for this garbage outcome is beyond pathetic. Only an imbecile or a “law professor” could defend this sick $y$tem.
Now, scroll down to the penultimate paragraph:
“The worst was Florida Coastal School of Law where only three out of every four failed the test. Of the 48 who took the bar, 12 passed.” [Emphasis mine]
For $ome rea$on, the pigs at Florida Coa$TTTTal have yet to feature this anemic bar passage rate prominently on their website. That must be a mere oversight on their part, right?!?! Then again, anyone applying to this dung heap should be able to find these exam results – in under five minutes of searching online.
Atrocious Admissions “Standards”: Let’s take a look at the Law School Transparency report for this ABA-accredited toilet’s admi$$ion$ information. Seeing that these 48 idiots took the exam this past February, we will look at the figure for the class entering in Fall 2013. Take a peak:
25th percentile LSAT: 141
50th percentile LSAT: 144
75th percentile LSAT: 148
25th percentile UGPA: 2.69
50th percentile UGPA: 2.97
75th percentile UGPA: 3.26 [Emphasis mine]
Does anyone with an IQ above room temperature want to defend these TTTT practices?! Hell, halfway intelligent people could take the LSAT without sleeping the prior 48 hours, and score higher than these cretins at the 25th percentile.
Conclusion: Do you see a correlation, Lemming?!?! By the way, when you are this damn dumb and get into a law school, it doesn’t matter how many hours you study, read case briefs, work on outlines, or prepare for the bar exam. Since your starting point is so low, you will need to make monstrous strides to pass the test. Lastly, even if you manage to get licensed as an attorney, now all you have to do is get hired by a decent law firm – or hustle your ass off to get paying clients. Good luck with that, Bitch! Meanwhile, the “professors” and deans are laughing their way to the bank – while you are consigned to a lifetime of crushing debt and piss poor wages.
