I passed. I logged into my online portal in early November and it asked me to reset my password and when i did all i could see was the "Apply" button to start a new application. I was no longer able to view my progress and see if my character app had changed from "Pending..." or whatever.
I've been trying to call the office of admissions since that happened with a perhaps irrational fear that my application was lost or there's some catasophy brewing with my application for no particular reason. No one has picked up, i call like every day a couple times at least.
Today someone picked up! She told me that i wouldn't be able to see any progress in my character app because of the rule that requires them to post our names and await any input from the public as to our fitness to practice law and when any changes to the character app are made in their online system it shows up on our end, so that's why it was taken offline until the 27th. I think. The rule requires them to allow comments until the 24th, that's why our notices start going out on the 27th -- also i wasn't clear if notices were going out or if our portals would be updated from our conversation and i forgot to ask for clarification. I also asked her that if there were further questions as to our character and fitness, would those questions have already gone out to us, and she said probably not until the 27th.
She let me know that my application did NOT magically evaporate for no apparent reason, but that my NCBE character report, which was sent to them from NCBE in late september, had not been updated at all. So, no real change in my status. It seems like they haven't gotten to me yet but she said that doesn't mean I will not get the 12/4 swearing-in date.
She was VERY patient with me in explaining this and it sounds like their electronic system is bulky and burdensome which sucks for them and also for us.
Not sure if this is helpful or adds more confusion
