Calculate Your Odds of Passing the Bar Exam by Entering Your LSAT Score, Class Rank, and Law School Rank

BarRobert Anderson (Pepperdine), What Are My Chances of Passing the Bar?:

This bar examination calculator [is] designed to predict the probability of passing a particular state bar examination based on LSAT, law school class rank, law school ranking, and bar examination state. This is an EXPERIMENTAL version of the calculator because it has not been validated against enough reliable, recent data. As a result, it may not give accurate predictions unless and until law schools provide me with data to calibrate and validate its predictions. I will revise this calculator as more information becomes available to me, but for now this should be considered provisional. I am making the calculator public to solicit help from those who have reliable data, such as law school administrators. 

For example, someone with a 161 LSAT who graduates in the top 1/3 of her class from a Top 50 law school has a 90% chance of passing the California bar exam.
