I live abroad and have been travelling alot, and now I'm trying to rush to get things notarized (for nearly $100 per signature >.<) and I'm wondering if it's worth waiting until getting results or if this app can carry over to the Feb 2018 test, if necessary?
Also what is the "letter or notice of certification from the State Board of Law Examiners". Is this proof of us passing or what? Apparently we have to file this with our app but I can't figure out what it is?
Thanks in advance!
1) yep you'll get a letter in the mail saying you passed
2) I'm not in the 3rd department, but it's not like there's really a deadline for submitting your app (besides the fact that bar scores are only good for so long). I've heard tales of people not sending them for quite a while after they found out they passed. I personally would not be spending hundreds of dollars to do this, unless your employer insists that you submit ASAP.
eta: i know literally nothing about anything so take that with a big ol' grain of skepticism.
I haven’t done anything as far as my application. I still have to take the MPRE (mine expired, I haven’t signed up to take it yet) and NYLE, and I don’t have a lot of money to spend so I’m just waiting for now. I read somewhere on the BOLE website that you have three years after taking the bar you pass to file all that info, so I figured no big deal. I didn’t read into how long that info is valid for either and who knows if I passed.
I also have a bunch of money I owe to keep another state bar membership and to do CLEs I have due this year, and my credit cards have higher balances than I’d like so for me no point in rushing until I have my ducks in a row.
I wish my original state of licensure had implemented the UBE when I’d taken it. It is a state with a high score requirement, would have surpassed the NY score, ugh. But alas... fingers crossed.
