Have most people heard back about their c&f?


I'm still waiting. I got a communication a few weeks ago about employment verification. IL Bar seems found of email when some places still love fax. I hate the waiting.

Is Oct 1 usually when scores are released or is that just a optimistic guess we have? The nerves are definitely kicking in this week.

Just anecdotal here - but when I took the IL exam, OCT 1 was a weekend and I had my results shortly after midnight on the 1st. Hoping for the same for everyone waiting.

Great, thanks! Just wanted to make sure I wasn't just getting excited for this nightmare to over soon only to find out I need to wait two more weeks.

Hey test takers. Spoke to my processor who confirmed results will be released tomorrow Sept 30. She said we might experience a delay due to the mass upload but the goal for release is mid to late afternoon.

Happy and anxious waiting!

To clarify, would this mean that EVERYONE finds out by mid to late afternoon? I heard that in previous years the "As" would find out at 12:01AM, then everyone else is released in bunches following that.

If anyone knows that would be great!

I don't think anyone can answer that in the definitive. They decide. However, the way it was expressed dd not sound like it would be released at midnight. My friends took it in 2011 when October 1st fell on a Saturday. The results were pushed at midnight (probably automatic scheduler). One friend got hers at 12:45 am, another 1:30am, some received theirs at 3:00am. I would venture to say they may shoot for 12 noon and results pushed through the rest of the day. I expected the midnight scenario but it did not sound like that is how it would play out. Maybe they finally realized it was torture to really expect that we would go to bed like normal folk instead of spooning our laptops and said "Sept 30, why the hell not."

Anyhoo we find out tomorrow. Praise him.

My C&F interview was supposed to be this Monday... moved to next Wednesday. Either way I am obviously nervous lol.

Side note: would the results say "pass but not cleared" or what happens in a case like mine?

Ended up getting to work at 6am today because I couldn't sleep all night. Now my heart is pounding every time my phone vibrates with a notification...this is going to be a loooooong day.

Good luck everyone!

That was me. It was what my processor said. Mid to late. Late afternoon falls in line with people receiving results around 5pm. If you go to the reddit link I posted earlier in the thread someone posted and email screenshot from one of the processors from today. All reports of Sept 30 have been consistent, it looks like as the date got closer they're nailing down on time.

Thanks for the updates btw and good luck! Maybe I'll try to get some work done now...
