2011 New York Bar Exam Results

The New York bar exam results came out about an hour ago.

There were 3,881 candidates took the New York bar in February all eager and ready to become lawyers. (The fact that there are no attorney jobs available and payments on their student loans start in 20 minutes did not damper their enthusiasm. Or maybe it did.) The pass rate was 48%. So if you passed, you are better than average. Graduates of American Bar Association approved law schools taking the bar for the first time passed at the rate of 76%.

Did your law school girlfriend pass the bar? You won’t find out here. But I doubt this will deter your search.
