After the 2019-20 academic year

24.7% academic dismissal
3.9% dropped out
5.7% transferred out
Non-transfer attrition
28.6% all 1Ls
26.9% white students
26.7% non-white students

These percentages reflect attrition only after the first year (1L). Under the ABA Standards, a law school with non-transfer attrition above 20%, measured over multiple years for an entering cohort, is presumptively out of compliance with the standards. These schools must rebutt the presumption that their admissions and retention policies meet Standard 501, which requires law schools to only enroll students who appear capable of completing school and gaining admission to the bar (which includes passing the bar exam).
