"I passed the February exam, and today I received my score break out in the mail (from the admissions committee). My score was broken out by MBE score and the written component score. The envelope was postmarked yesterday (5/17/17). I live in the District, only a few blocks from the Court of Appeals. The mailing also included an attachment indicating that I haven't been approved for swearing in because they are either currently reviewing my responses to questions on my application or they are awaiting completion of my character and fitness report."


Does anyone know, if there are these kind of delays, how regularly they hold other swearing in dates? Provided everything gets sorted with C&F, do you then have to wait for the swearing in for those who take the Feb. bar? Or would there be some date in the middle for people who passed July but had C&F or other delays?

According to this ATL post: https://abovethelaw.com/2017/06/when-oh ... earing-in/
For the Feb. DC bar, only 80 people out of 230 who passed were cleared immediately for admission!? Hopefully that isn't the case here...I really hope to see something today. Fingers crossed!

"In other words, the July swearing-in applies to the 80 candidates certified for admission, not to all 230 bar exam passers. Congratulations to all 230 on passing the bar, and congrats to the 80 on your upcoming admission!""

Got an email confirming swear in date!

"Congratulations! The Committee on Admissions has certified your admission to the Bar of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals.

You must appear in person to be administered the oath of admission on 12/4/2017 at 12PM. If it is impossible for you to appear on this date, your alternate date is 2/5/2018 at 12PM. You do not need to confirm your appointment or to advise the Committee of your choice of the alternate court date."

What was the status of your C&F tab before today? "Receipt of C&F Report" or something else?

Mine was "receipt." Anyone else not receive this email? I guess I'm hoping it's being sent in waves or something at this point.

Mine was "in receipt" and I haven't gotten the email. I'm trying to figure out if people who got the email had already had their C&F fully processed.

I haven't gotten an email yet.

C & F status was "pending report" or whatever last time it was visible even though NCBE had already sent report. Uggghhhh.

They may be sending the emails in waves. My C&F report was only received by the DCCA 2 weeks ago, and if mine was already approved, I'm sure yours have been. They sent bar scores in waves as well, so just wait and see. I'm sure it'll come later today or tomorrow.

I'm assuming it was receipt without the little yellow hourglass beside it?

FYI, the results of my constant badgering:

"We are continuing to send out notifications. So far 500 applicants have been certified. If you do not receive a notice today for the December swear in you will be certified for the January 5th ceremony.

Committee on Admissions"

You can bring family, as there is usually a small overflow room.

Does anyone know where I can find the Application ID No. is for our Supplemental Questionnaire form?
I found 2 separate "ID #s" - one from the exam and one from an email from DCCA.

Are you required to attend the "Mandatory Course on the D.C. Rules of Professional Conduct" if you've already completed the mandatory course on professionalism in another jurisdiction (e.g. Florida)?

I asked and was told the number to put in that box is the Exam ID number, which I think is five digits or may be four digits for some people.

Hmm I asked and was told to leave it blank ...
