How does Concord Law School stay in business with such a low bar pass rate?...................................https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concord_Law_School

Once, Concord was a decent alternative to traditional law schools.....but since it can no longer recruit students from outside of California, and since it therefore laid off 4/5ths of its faculty and staff, it is nothing more than a shell of its former self. Only a total fool would go to Concord Law School now...it will surely close sometime in the near future, if, for no other reason than the Purdue purchase of Kaplan (which owns Concord), will require it to be closed down. But whatever Purdue does or doesn't do, Concord is, simply put, worthless.
I am a former student of Concord Law School. It is pretty good law school. I decided to go online after trying a local law school. The local law school was terrible with professors that did not prepare for classes and were not interested in teaching. The bar pass rate is lower than ABA law schools but significantly higher than non-ABA law schools. The majority of students attending this law school are working adults with full day-time jobs. Some of them had to travel constantly. I even had one classmate who was fighting in Iraq against insurgents. This law school provides opportunities for a lot of us who can never dream off.
The bar pass rate is not low but is decent. If you can take into consideration that a lot of the students have to work during the day and study at night for the bar exam, you will appreciate the pass rate of students from this law school is actually pretty high. I passed my bar in the second attempt but a lot of my classmates passed the bar the first time.
Can't believe this school stays in business. It doesn't make sense.
