All required documentation has been reviewed and approved. You are now eligible to sit for the July 2014 bar examination. Approximately two weeks before the examination, you will be sent an email with a link where you will be able to view and print your seat ticket. A copy of your seat ticket is necessary to gain entrance into the examination room.


When did you submit your materials? Or when did you give them to your school?

I haven't gotten this yet, but I'm not expecting to so quickly since my final grades aren't due until June 12th and then my school will send out the handwriting sample and law school certification.

I gave my materials to my school early last week (the week of 5/19) and the school probably sent out the materials shortly thereafter..

Does this concern you? They need to be there June 15th right? I'm stressed and my grades finalized today.

I know my school is sending them this week. I am just stressed that something will go wrong in the mail or something. If they werent sending them until the 12th that would freak me out.

Do they mail them or something else? Not mailing them would make me feel better.

my school sent them overnight mail, return request requested, with tracking information done ( and would print out a copy of the tracking information every 6 hours) and also requested to be notified when the documents were signed, sealed and delivered.

They did one complete batch and if you submitted them after their due date- which was 10 days after graduation, you would be required to either sign a waiver or pay for those items yourself.

Just got my assignment email. No surprise that I got the Javits Center in NYC. I'm going to try to switch to Albany I think. Looks like hotels won't be a problem. Anyone have an opinion on whether I should try to switch into Albany, Saratoga, or Buffalo?

Just confirmed my seat location.

And I don't think we can provide you with a link. The link provided in the email is personal to the recipient. I am sure you will get one soon enough.

Thanks! And phooey! If I include the B, I get redirected to the BOLE home page. If I remove the B, I see a message at the bottom of the page that says, "The BOLE ID submitted is invalid." Anyone else have this problem?

It seemed like you had the option to pick whichever you want since they were all still available. I stuck with Javits because I would rather not attempt to travel out of NYC, but I can definitely see the benefit in leaving NYC.

The B should be included, I guess you should wait for your email.

Yeah. It seems the link isn't live yet for out-of-state applicants.

I haven't even gotten the email yet that was supposed to let us select a preference between Albany or Buffalo.

I have not either, and I'm not sure they have been sent out. The other out of state people I know have received nothing regarding seat locations.

Just got my email link to select my location, and they were all listed even though I'm out-of-state. While NYC would be most convenient for me, I picked Albany because I'm not dealing with the hellhole I've heard the Javits Center will be.

The same; they let me choose NYC, even though I'm out-of-state.

I was REALLY tempted to pick Albany. I know people bitch about Jarvis, but in the end I figured itw two days and everyone there will be under the same conditions. I just want to get it over with, close to home.

Did anyone use last year's link to choose a location before they received the email - and then later get the email? I chose one location before I received the email, but then when I clicked on the email they sent my location was no longer available. Should I be worried?
