Did you get that confirmation page after you first selected your location? It was just plain white with black font confirming your location. I imagine there is an independent site you can log into and verify your location.

The site was moving really slow. I went to confirm my seat and it timed out and will not not reopen.

FYI, there are still rooms available in the Best Western Convention Hotel for like $250 per night. I'm sure the hotel is not the greatest, but being right there should be nice.

For people who have received a confirmation emails stating that the bar has received your handwriting sample and certificate of attendance: how long after your materials were sent in did you receive this email confirmation? Thanks.

I sent mine in to my school's records and registration department who sent them all to Barexaminer land in a single mailing. IF you did the same, then I would not worry

I think someone already answered this, but Im at work and cant really search.

What time of day did you guys get your emails confirming proofs and handwriting samples? My school was supposed to send mine in a week ago, and now I need to go yell at them.

Also, for whoever asked, they did send out seat confirmations yesterday.

Just so I'm clear, what are all the forms that need to be sent into the NY Bar Exam? Is it just handwriting sample and the certificate of attendance? Thanks.

Are there any good audio-style, quick-hit black law stuff out there? Looking for something I can listen to when I'm on the bike in the gym n such to feel like a little less of a slacker

I think the stickers are fine and I can't imagine we need anything more than bole ID.

I think the main reason they force us to bring seat tickets is because it's the only way we will remember our seats and ID numbers.

Softest has a random password that is needed to be inputted together with your Bole ID. Any way we can bring a slip of paper with that login in case we need to login from Javits center?

Is there wifi there?

I just loaded mine up and hit "take an exam." I see the July 29th AM and PM exams in the pulldown. And then there's an exam password, which I assume they will give to us tomorrow. Not sure what you are describing.
