Ind. Courts - Indiana Bar passage results over the past three years

On April 11th the ILB linked to the names of those who successfully passed the February 2016 Indiana bar exam. Now here are some statistics, derived from those compiled by the Board of Law Examiners.

[Updated at 3:23 PM] I just noticed that recurring "104" figure in the "Repeaters" column, and rechecked against the court stats to make sure - yes, it is correct.
