Repeat Bar Takers: Don’t Let the Odds Discourage Your Goal to Pass the Bar Exam

Posted in Uncategorized on November 25, 2010 by barprofs

As a repeat bar taker, you are clearly at a distinct disadvantage for passing your next bar exam.

The pass rate for all repeat takers for the California July 2010 bar was a shocking 22%.  In California, 2,478 applicants were repeat takers for July 2010 and only 545 applicants passed.  In Texas, only 46% of the second time bar takers passed the July 2010 bar and only 45% of repeat takers in Massachusetts passed in July 20010.

It’s time for all repeat bar takers to start studying now for the February 2011 bar exam.  The “key” to passing is obtaining a private tutor.  Do not do what you did before – taking a commercial bar course a second time will not help you.  Make sure you have a plan in place to ensure your success. 

Please note Bar Professors offers private tutorial for the Florida, Texas, New York and California 2011 bar exams.  Send inquires to pass@barprofessors.com.
