Indiana Tech Law School Had One Damn Student Pass the July 2016 Indiana Bar Exam
Rousing Success: On September 13, 2016, the Indiana Lawyer published a Jennifer Nelson piece that was entitled “Lone Indiana Tech Law student passes July exam.” Enjoy the monumental full text below:
“The inaugural graduating class of Indiana Tech Law School in Fort Wayne set a goal of a 100 percent bar passage rate, but a review of the names of successful July applicants reveals only one Indiana Tech student passed the Indiana Bar Exam.
Twenty students graduated from Indiana Tech in May, the first to do so from the law school that opened in its doors to students 2013. The students wanted to prove to the legal community and doubters that the state needed another law school and that Indiana Tech will be around for many years, according to one student who spoke with Indiana Lawyer shortly after graduation.
An Indiana Lawyer review of the names of successful applicants for the July 2016 Indiana Bar Exam released Monday only includes one student from Indiana Tech. A spokesman for Indiana Tech would not confirm or deny that student was the only one who passed the test, but did clarify that a dozen graduates sat for the exam.
“We had 12 graduates sit for the July bar exam. As is the case everywhere, we had a mixture of passage, failure, and those within appeal range. So we won’t know our pass number until that process is done,” wrote Brian Engelhart, vice president of university relations for Indiana Tech, in an email.
Engelhart did not respond to a follow-up email asking why only 12 graduates sat for the July exam and if some planned on waiting until February to take the test.
Messages left for comment from law school Dean Charles Cercone, Associate Dean andré douglas pond cummings, and members of the board of trustees, were not returned by IL deadline.
Under Indiana Admission and Discipline Rule 14, those who want to appeal must make a written request to the Board of Law Examiners within 14 days of the issuance by the board of the eligible examinee’s results.” [Emphasis mine]
How presTTTTigious, huh?!?! Hell, you would be better off trying to land a career, with a degree from DeVry “University” or ITT Technical Institute. This is beyond pathetic!
Other Coverage: On September 14, 2016 at 2:59 pm, JDU denizen “abazungu” started a thread that was labeled “Indiana Tech Law has student pass bar exam.” Take a look at his original post:
"We had 12 graduates sit for the July bar exam. As is the case everywhere, we had a mixture of passage, failure, and those within appeal range. So we won’t know our pass number until that process is done,” wrote Brian Engelhart, vice president of university relations for Indiana Tech, in an email.
If all goes well, they might have another student pass the bar in February. Sky's the limit for this academic citadel.” [Emphasis mine]

“Sounds like each of these 12 proud alumni have a cool million in additional life time earnings awaiting them! Just think of how much dough that one guy who actually passed the bar is going to make.”
Accountholder “3lol” blasts this toilet with this zinger, on September 14, 2016 5:06 pm:
“This makes Infilaw schools look positively elite, what with their *multiple* bar passers. Fancy stuff.”
If you have a functioning brain stem, then you will not even consider this rancid trash pit. Sadly, this school proudly enrolls waterheads.
On September 14, 2016, Staci Zaretsky posted an ATL entry headlined “Worst Bar Exam Results Ever? Only ONE Person From This Law School Passed The Bar Exam.” From that source:
“According to the Indiana Board of Law Examiners, of the 508 people who sat for the Indiana exam, 414 of them were first-time takers, with a pass rate of 68 percent. The overall pass rate for the Indiana exam was 61 percent. The overall pass rate for Indiana Tech School of Law graduates was 8.33 percent (12 graduates sat for the state exam).” [Emphasis mine]
Conclusion: It’s impressive that this cesspool’s bar passage rate was within 60 percent of the state’s overall success rate for first-time takers. Then again, this was a rather small sample size from Indiana Tech Law Sewer. From the excrement pile’s “About Us” page, “Indiana Tech Law School is a new kind of law school dedicated to preparing students for success in law, leadership, and life.” Yeah, how’s that working out for your students and graduates, cockroaches?!?!
