A Dayton Daily News analysis of a decade’s worth of bar exam data shows UD’s passage rate has declined by 29 percent among all test takers and first-time test takers since 2008 when the school had an 87 percent passage rate.Hard-hitting analysis getting out a calculator and all. How about you make the bar exam easier so you don't choke out southern Ohio's supply of attorneys?
Ohio Northern University was the only law school in Ohio where the bar passage rate has changed as much as UD’s over the past decade, dropping 9 points.The conspiracy strikes more than one school, eh? Looks like it's not just Dayton's problem. Make the bar exam easier!
UD’s passage rate has prompted its law school to roll out new programs and offerings to remain competitive...Wasted resources if you're just going to admit the suckers anyway. Make the bar exam easier!
Students pay $35,619 in tuition plus additional fees each year to attend UD’s law school. That is the third-highest cost for Ohio law schools; students at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland pay $50,666 a year.Jesus, a $15k discount off book value plus generous scholarships and you're STILL breaking these kids' balls over the bar exam? Say it with me, now...
Around 83 percent of people enrolled at UD’s law school receive some form of financial assistance from the school.
“We work really hard to try to make it affordable to people,” Strauss said. “We understand that (bar passage) is a big issue and we are totally committed to turning this around.”Right...or you could just MAKE THE BAR EXAM EASIER and get rid of making law schools internalize their own students' problems. What's Dayton got to "turn around?" It's been educating Dayton's lawyer's for decades at a low cost. The trajectory is still up. In the zeitgeist of Trump's America, let's stop letting pesky government regulations get in the way.
Let Dayton fly higher. Get it a hit of crack by making the bar exam easier.
