Depends on the state. Typically you fill out admission paperwork both before and after the test. I'm some places (like Illinois) all admission paperwork is before the exam.

In some states (Ohio, for instance), there are preliminary C&F forms to fill out as early as your 2L year: no big deal if you miss them, but you pay a penalty. Check your jurisdiction.

In CA, you can do it before or after.....but you should do it before. Because the C&F paperwork takes forever (mine took nearly 10 months)
