Withdrawing C&F Application

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Sep 25, 2013 4:14 pm

I submitted my character and fitness application for the Illinois Bar, but will now be taking the bar in a different state. My application was submitted well over a year ago but my file/evaluation is still in progress. Any there any negative consequences for withdrawing my application to the Illinois bar?

You'll have to disclose that you applied and withdraw in Illinois on future bar applications in other states, but other than them ordering a copy of your Illinois app to make sure you aren't hiding anything from them, there shouldn't be consequences.

I would call and ask if you can be waived in with your other state's results. If so, I doubt they'll refund any money, so you may as well just take admittance to the Illinois bar. Can't hurt.
