*ABOUT THIS REPORT: Bar passage rates for ILRG's 2009 Raw Data Law School Rankings Report, which was released in Spring 2008, reflect those rates among first-time test takers for the Summer 2006/Winter 2007 administrations of the bar examinations. The acceptance rates, LSAT scores, undergraduate GPAs, and student-to-faculty ratios reflect those data representative of full-time students in Fall 2007. The employment rates reflect those among 2006 full-time graduates. The state bar passage rate noted for each law school is the statewide bar passage rate for the jurisdiction in which the greatest number of the law school's graduates took the bar exam for the reported period. The data have been compiled from a variety of public sources, including data released by the law schools and from the bar examiner offices in each jurisdiction.ILRG's 2010 report is slated for release in the Spring of 2009.
