question regarding NJ bar exam

Postby yung » Fri Nov 29, 2013 7:57 pm

Hey guys I am currently signing up for the NJ bar exam and I am having some questions. It seems much more elaborate than the NY one and requires a notary public for some documents. Do you guys know if its possible to turn in the documents in without the notary public and then make up for it later? Only asking this because the last day to sign up is tomorrow. Thanks in advance for any input.

Hi, I am wondering if you guys can answer another question for me. It says that I need to sign, notarize, and upload the application and release form but the site doesn't seem to have an option for uploading documents?
Also, I got a message saying that "my application is now complete and I may submit it now" even though I have not uploaded any of the forms, anyone knows whats going on?

I mailed the application and release form. But the option to upload documents should be to the right of the home page; it says "upload supplemental documents," or something. But it seems odd to upload a notarized document. What point is the seal in that case? I'll take your word that that's allowed though.

It's not really more complicated than the NY application, it's just different timing. You have a whole long application, which does need to be notarized, and a bunch of affidavits after you take the NY bar. NJ just gets it out of the way in advance of the exam.
