I am very suspicious when the state bar wants our application even before our results. Do they pass fail us based on that? I don't think so, but its possible. I hate everything with possibilities. ahhhhhhhhhh

I have a lecture I'm attending on Thursday so if I don't pass I'll at least get a day (by my April 27 official release prediction) before having to tell all my coworkers I failed.

My boss asked if I could attend a Title IX training the last week of July, so I was like oh shoot, an excuse not to retake! And then I'm getting married in December, so there another excuse not to retake. Basically if I fail I'm never retaking and I'll just hang my MSW degree on the wall only and call it a day.

Haha, that would be so unethical. But ya never know. I just had to get everything in (if I pass) to be sworn in by June 19th. Otherwise they said it wouldn't be until January.

If I were to fail, I'm hoping they keep all that on file, cause it was a pain to get those affidavits signed (5 in total for me, with 2 attorney's changing jobs). But I copied everything twice, just in case. Man, I really hope I pass along with the rest of you.

me too... I scanned a copy for myself as well.
I think they will leave it in file. It doesn't make sense to do the whole thing again.

This Court will admit to practice successful bar candidates on June 19, 2017. In
order to be eligible for admission in June, your completed application and all required
affidavits and certificates must be postmarked on or before April 17, 2017. Please be
advised that if you miss the deadline date, the next scheduled bar admission ceremony is
in January 2018.

That's copied from the 4th department bar admissions website.

Oh and the different departments are notified from BOLE, so sending your application before bar results are released has no bearing on whether or not you pass or fail. I guess the 4th department just wants everything upfront. Except for the "pass" sheet with $375.
