*Retention rate refers to the number of students retained at the end of the first year who advance to the second year of study.

**The number of graduates is fewer than the number of students who advance from first to the second year. This is due to transfers, attrition, and voluntary withdrawals during the second, third, and fourth years of study.

***Graduation rate advanced reflects the percentage of students that go on to graduate after their first successful year of law school.
