Pass rates for first-time test takers from Arizona Summit Law School dipped to 26 percent in July after having improved to nearly 30 percent in February. Results hit a low of 25 percent in July 2016, according to results released Monday by the Arizona Supreme Court.I'm sure the self-appointed critics will see this as validation of what they've been saying about Arizona Summit. They're such mental midgets they would use a term like "mental midget." Lord knows I wouldn't. I'm sophisticated and well-endowed.
Arizona Summit once boasted State Bar exam passage rates as high as 97 percent.
The only variable that matters with bar passage rates is whiners bitching about the law school scam and thereby driving bar examiners to make the test more ludicrously difficult for would-be lawyers. When Phoenix has a shortage of qualified attorneys in a few short years, there's going to be plenty of blame to go around, but squarely, indisputably, it can be directed at the legal media who have driven intelligent, hard-working students towards less-"scammy" professions premised on a presentation of evidence that is unnecessarily and absurdly objective and even-handed.
But-for you assholes, Summit would still be scoring 97 percent on the bar exam. No doubt in my mind, as the test-makers would have no incentive to make the test more difficult.
I heard there's now a math section on the bar examination. That's how bad it's gotten. Did you know that? Like why are they making future criminal law defense attorneys do integral calculus?
What you all don't realize is that the survivors of this ludicrous system are going to the baddest millennial badass attorneys to ever badass. It's called evolution. More resistance makes the trainees who escape the cruel system even stronger. The fascist cretins at the bar association may be unjustifiably shredding tickets to the Express but the ones who can board are going for a long, multi-million dollar ride. Most of us would prefer a more egalitarian approach, but to each his own.
