UCLA must not be a very good school...

I'm rather surprised by the relatively low passage rates for #13 (tier 2), #15 (tier 1), and #17 (tier 1?), even if they're repeat-takers.

I'm not surprised. Two of them are very small portions of their respective student populations and as for Loyola, they're probably only better than SWLAW in two respects: 1) in the rankings of U.S. News and 2) by reputation that is based largely on the U.S. News rankings. So really it's more like 1.5 respects and not that much of a surprise that they fall below SWLAW.

These numbers don't tell anyone much. Look at the figures for the July Bar and for people taking the February Bar for the second time. These numbers are so small they're not really statistically significant.
