For those who are swearing in this Friday - is this at your school or something? I'm in LA but did not attend school here, trying to see if I can get it done on Friday. Looks like not all notaries offer oath services.

Anyone else have an "administrative issue" on their admission status? I asked and it has to do with DOJ fingerprinting clearance... Wondering if anyone has received any updates.

Some law schools are doing their own swearing in ceremonies, and normally they are closed to the public. You could try contacting a few and see if they could allow you to attend, as one extra person wouldn't likely be a big issue. I think you would be responsible for sending your own materials to the Bar.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat. When did you submit your moral character app? I'm hoping they'll finish up quickly since I passed, but who knows.

Didn't you know how to check your application status? If you are not on motion, you won't receive the oath card, but you should still get a letter to inform you of passing the bar exam.

Moral character app has nothing to do whether you passed or not. It is on a different track handled by a different team.

Sorry I will be more specific as my comment was confusing. I received my letter congratulating me on the bar pass. However, i haven’t received this “packet” that everyone is talking about. My moral app is still pending and was told that i won’t be receiving it until it is cleared.

If there is still something to be completed (like C&F or MPRE) then you won't get the "packet". You just get a letter saying you passed. That's the letter I got. I still need to get my C&F.

I'm in Riverside and still have not received my pass letter or packet ... everything on the ca bar website looks good and it says I'm on motion and address is fine.

I am in the same boat as you- in LA, and everything on my admissions page is completed, and on motion 11/14/17. No packet or pass letter in the mail yet. Looks like I'm headed to the Bar office to get the oath card myself before swearing in!

What's the procedure after you take the oath and mail in the registration card? Does it take a while for them to issue you a bar number?

I took the Feb '17 bar and was sworn in on June 6. My understanding is once you're sworn in, you are good to go to practice, even without a bar number (thought it could be confusing if you are filing motions). I sent my card in that day via 1st class mail to SF and a week later I had a bar number in the system. I understand it's sequential in order received, and there's many more new attorneys from the July bar than the Feb bar, but I would expect you'd have a number in a couple weeks.

The packet states they will do their best to give you an active number within 1-2 weeks of receiving the card.

Also, from the bar's website FAQ section:
What happens if I don’t I get a bar number immediately?

After submitting your completed membership enrollment card, allow one to two weeks for delivery, then check Attorney Search to confirm your enrollment and find your bar number. If you do not see your name on the State Bar website after two weeks from the date you submitted the card, call 888-800-3400 or email msc@calbar.ca.gov.
