But the email I got the other day was from the third department. Does anyone know if they determine the department you're assigned to based on residency or exam location? And does anyone know if I should be preparing my stuff for the First or Third division? It's only relevant because every other division besides the First can start sending their stuff in now. First is supposed to wait until the exam results come out.
It's based on your address, not where you took the bar. If you work or live in the First Department, and want to be in the First Department for your swearing-in, you can submit a form to switch departments (but you need to provide a Manhattan address, either home or work). Otherwise, you're in the Third already and that's where you'll remain.
Same issue. Is it better to submit everything to the third department now and switch to the first later or wait and submit everything to the first department?
