Screw U: The Next Bubble May Be Higher Education

The point is that diploma mill law schools lure people in who have no chance to be admitted to an ABA school (probably for good reason) and get them rack up enormous, government-guaranteed loans. Look at http://www.ncbex.org/assets/media_files/Statist..., particularly page 10. California's ABA school pass rate was 61% (third-lowest, ahead of Alaska and D.C.). Average was 74%. Sixteen states (by my count) had pass rates at 80%+, and 10 states had pass rates in the 60s or lower. So I stick by my statement that California's ABA grad pass rate is "about the same" as that for other states. For a list of law schools in California, see http://admissions.calbar.ca.gov/Education/Legal... I can't tell just by looking which of the private schools listed are for-profit and which are non-profit, but I'll bet there are more for-profit schools than just Concord.
