In a recent study, BARBRI’s data scientists evaluated pass rates reported by EVERY ABA accredited law school, in every jurisdiction for the past 3 years*. We then looked at results for students at those schools who studied for their first exam with BARBRI Bar Review vs those who studied with some other course or method.
The results were clear: When more students at a school study with BARBRI Bar Review, the overall school pass rate is higher – regardless of the amount of work each student completed.
The diagram below shows that for every 10% of students who enrolled in BARBRI Bar Review over the last three years, the overall school pass rate increased by 2%:
The converse was true as well: For every 10% increase in the number of first-time takers who did NOT choose to study with BARBRI Bar Review, overall school pass rate decreased by 2%:
THAT’S INTERESTING, BUT WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ME?
In the 50+ years we’ve helped students prepare for every U.S. state bar exam, thousands of students have asked, “does it really matter which course I choose?” Now data collected by the American Bar Association answers this question with a resounding, “Yes, BARBRI works better.”
REMEMBER, BAR REVIEW COMPANY PASS RATES DON’T INDICATE HOW YOU WILL DO ON THE BAR EXAM
The reality is that about 9 out of 10 BARBRI students who do the average amount of work in our course pass the bar. That’s impressive … but we don’t care, and neither should you.
Don’t forget, our earlier studies have shown that, for a similar amount of work, students who study with BARBRI score more points. With BARBRI, you’ll study smarter, better utilize your precious, limited study time, and have a greater cushion and more confidence on exam day.
It’s not about bar review company pass rates…it’s about YOU passing YOUR exam. Learn More about how BARBRI will help you do that – the first time.
