Yea, but if you're faced with June 19th or January 2018 you'd get your stuff in too, lol.


In 1st Dept we can't get our stuff in yet. They won't let us.


This is why NYS is great...."unified court system"....but everyone does it differently.

Its kind of like the UBE, but every state has a different passing score.

I do think we are lucky, I have no doubt in about 4-5 years they'll up the passing score in NYS.

2nd Dep't accepts applications and keeps them on file. You are moved to the front of the line if you get your application in early. They hold it, awaiting your bar passage letter.

yes, they usually have them twice a month, but sometimes that gets extended to once every 3 weeks in the summer when it is slower

I felt bad reading other states, where the applicant failed with a 266. I'm over hear like I'll take your score. All I need/ want is a 266. I'd obviously take higher.

Yeah I don't think I'm open to moving to any of those states haha. I'm originally from Ohio but it'll be about 10 years before they adopt the UBE.

Lol I'm okay with it, I think it would be Santa Fe, NM.
I like the warmth! It's not too far from vegas or LA. I can deal with cactuses. *continues making list of the pros in new mexico*

Same here, I could care less how that 266 happens. Give me a 110 MBE and a 156 written score, I'll take it.

If I pass, I'll call everyone who is important to me before public look-up. But I may get a call from a trolling classmate. As I said earlier, I was supposed to graduate this May but I took summer classes and got out in Dec.

Well my fiance will probably be sleeping in bed next to me, if its an email that comes at night, so I will wake him up like I do for all important things (David Bowie's death, Muhammad Ali's death, etc.) and scream. Then I will sleep, and the next day I will call my parents. My brother passed this summer and didn't tell anyone, and I had to look it up at inform my whole family for him.

My ex-bf told me I was being too dramatic about results coming out. Maybe this is why he's an ex.
