Eds: APNewsNow.

MIAMI (AP) — Stetson University law school graduates had the highest passage rate on the Florida Bar's February exam for prospective attorneys.

The Daily Business Review reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/1nlLUpX ) that Stetson had an 85 percent passage rate while Ave Maria University had the lowest passage rate with 30 percent.

Florida State had the second-highest passage rate at 83 percent and Florida International was third at 81 percent. University of Miami fell just short of 81 percent.

The University of Florida had a passage rate of 65 percent, a major drop from July's rate of 88. Administrators blamed it on the small number of UF grads who took the most recent test, 17 compared to 321.

Overall, 73 percent of the 805 prospective lawyers passed the exam.
