Via one of my favorite new reads, the Sophistic Miltonian Serbonian Blog, mouthful that, comes Retentionally yours, noting the following attrition rates among Texas law schools:

University of Houston Law Center: 1.79%
SMU Dedman School of Law: 1.81%
University of Texas School of Law: 2.13%
Texas Tech University School of Law: 2.99%
South Texas College of Law: 4.45%
Texas Southern University Thurgood Marshall School of Law: 6.99%
Baylor University School of Law: 7.23%
Texas Wesleyan University School of Law: 10.15%

It’s nice to see the University of Houston come out on top in this one, confirming my own opinion that it’s a great place to go to law school. See also Above the Law, Should I Stay Or Should I Go? Law School Attrition, Tex Parte Blog

    I was excited to see your post stating TMSL’s 1st year attrition rate was 6.99%. The LSAC website shows it at 22%, which is up from 18% last year. Where did you get 6.99%

    According to Texas Lawyer it’s from American Bar Association’s Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar – though I couldn’t find find any school-specific attrition info just now in a cursory look at the website. At second thought I tend to be a little skeptical of these numbers given difficulty in measuring this kind of stat.
