Yep, NJ's out. Another pass
It was surprisingly anticlimactic - I guess because I was worried more about NY and I just took NJ to have a few more employment options. But I'm happy - and surprised by how early they came out. Nice to have one jurisdiction where the C&F stuff is already done - got a phone call from the 2nd dept today asking if I filled out the OCA registration yet. I haven't, but I will next week - tonight I'm just going to enjoy the trick or treaters (for the first hour anyway).
And I used two family friends for my moral affidavits. The woman who called today didn't say anything, so I think it was fine.
You've been certified in NJ? Nice! Now I'm worried. Are you a NJ resident?
Thanks! I'm not a NJ resident, but from the results letter it seems like I'm pretty much all set and all I have left is the swearing-in and subsequent registration.
The second paragraph says:
A review of your file indicates that you have successfully completed all of the bar admission requirements established by the Supreme Court. You are now eligible for admission to the Bar of the State of New Jersey.
Then it talks about being sworn in, and once that's done I can register. Does your letter say something different?
And it doesn't list any missing documents, just "If nothing is listed, your standard documentation has been received and your reviewing attorney has either not yet completed the reveiw of your file or requires additional information or documentation specific to your file."
So I assume there are a lot of applicants, and I'm just unlucky since they haven't gotten to mine yet.
I guess it's not *that* important. I'm more worried about New York, but it'll take months to get sworn in. I was hoping I would be certified so I could immediately be sworn in and legally call myself a lawyer.
Urgh, that's annoying. I think I got my forms in pretty early, maybe that's why I'm done? Had those notarized forms and my driving abstracts in by April 11, then got fingerprinted on May 12. But I'm sure they'll finish the review soon! Are you going to immediately get yourself sworn in? I'm still deciding - there's a ceremony in Trenton on December 2 and while I hate all that ceremonial stuff, my parents love it. Maybe it'll fill up quickly and then I can honestly say I can't go, haha.
I'm worried about NY too. I think I got in everything and hopefully the woman from the 2nd dept would have told me if I hadn't, but there is SO MUCH PAPERWORK. I just sent in my OCA registration today and so I think everything's set except for that introduction to the profession course, which is not until December. I'd just like everything to be finished so I can be admitted and move on!
