    But he was taking it for other people and he needed to be able to get them a score that would match their grade point average.

    LSAT and the bar are two different things. LSAT is an acceptance test to get you into law school after you've completed your undergraduate work.

    I don't remember them discussing him passing the bar at all (but it may have happened). I also have no idea if he has an undergraduate degree of any kind.

    Not to mention bar exams vary from state to state and LSAT is more standardized (correct?)

    I just re-watched the first episode. Well, at least the section where Mike is explaining to Harvey how he's so smart. Mike says early on in the conversation that he passed the bar and later in the conversation says he took the bar because a friend bet him he couldn't pass it without going through law school first.

    I remember Mike saying he passed the bar on a bet. What I do not remember is if he said whether he passed in his own name, and what state's bar exam he took. If they did not say, I guess it was a false name and probably NY state bar since it seems he has been living in NY for a while now.

    I didn't remember the details, but the time Mike actually appeared in court suggested to me that he was a "real" lawyer as far as NY state was concerned. Bucking the firm's rule about Harvard grads is one thing, sending a non-lawyer into court would be another.

    The firm could fire him for lying on his application, but since the guy who hired him knew the the truth the "firm" knows the truth. If he's valuable enough before they find out then the fact he didn't graduate from Harvard might not be an issue at all.

    The riskier secret is taking tests for others. You might be able to get away with that at Crane, Poole and Schmidt, but this firm wouldn't like the ethical black eye.

    Suits has an awful lot of cussing for a USA show. Is this the only USA show where words like a-hole and p*ssy are frequently used?

    I don't consider that cussing.

    They say sh*t a lot, too.

    And Mike did pass the bar.

    Although, she wasn't happy with Mike and his performance in the mock trial.

    I have enjoyed this show from the get-go and it never disappointed me for entertainment! It's Number One for me. I'm disappointed the season was so short and can't wait for another "season" ASAP please.

    I think White Collar and In Plain Sight are done for the season.

    My mistake. I thought some other USA show had finished for the summer already. Maybe I've just been confused about all the promos about the upcoming summer finales. I time shift everything, so promos can be a bit confusing, because they seldom mention the date, just the day and time. I should put that in the Things That Annoy Me thread.

    White Collar was really confusing. My wife and I would both swear the episode before last advertised last week's episode as the finale. If that wasn't it the wording must have been really ambiguous.

    The guide data has been screwed up, I think, like a week ahead. It seems to be fixed now though.
