You should contact the board of law examiners asap.

I called the board and was told that not receiving info about the C&F interview "is not uncommon at this time." I also just found out that two of my references received the forms very late - one said she received it on April 1st, with a due date of March 31st.

They should be out by the end of day Friday. Good luck...I've started studying again. Not fun.



How do you know? :shock:


I'm a repeat taker and the proctors gave us a date and that was the date they released it. 2nd time taking the exam I was told that the results would be out on Friday May 5th. It is also on their website.

Was the time also accurate when you received results last time? Should we be expecting results after 4:30pm?

Yes. They are very punctual. You can refresh all you want but it's posted at the end of their work day. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Hi- repeat taker and first time poster on TLS. I passed this time around and unfortunately won't be able to make the June swear in date. Do many people attend the September ceremony? Is there a chance we'd receive more than 2 tickets to the later ceremony? Also, is there another way to be sworn in other than attending the official ceremony?

I've been a long time lurker of these Maryland Bar TLS forums so thank you to the community for the all of the advice and the ability to commiserate in the years its taken me to pass.

Hi! Quick answer here: you only get two tickets and that's it. The court of appeals court room is tiny. You have to attend the swearing in ceremony, no way around it.

I'm in Rockville, if anyone is interested you can email me at vsophir@yahoo.com.

Thanks,

I couldn't go to mine either, my mom was having chemo. They let me do it the following month. It was about a dozen of us. It's less of a scene, no speaker or anything, but the Judges said a few things. And I went alone but you could bring more people because it's 20 minutes in and out and just a few people being sworn in.
