Why Is The February 2017 Michigan Bar Exam Passage Rate So Low? And What Does It Mean For July’s Exam?

Official statistics for the February 2017 Michigan bar exam have not yet been released. However, doing basic math with the numbers we have available, it appears as though the February 2017 Michigan bar exam passage rate was 46%.

(How did we get this number? It looks like, based on the seat number list, there were approximately 390 bar exam takers without accommodations. There were also approximately 15 bar exam takers with accommodations in the 600’s and 15 attorneys licensed in other jurisdictions in the 700’s. So the total number of bar exam takers appears to be around 420. There are about 194 seat numbers on the list. That makes for a 46 – 47% passage rate.)
