Can anyone confirm how many separate in-person appearances are required? My letter confirming receipt of my application lists tentative dates for the Personal Interview and for the Admission Ceremony. But it also says "You will also receive a Notice indicating the Date, Place and Time for your Oath Ceremony." Is that different from the Admission Ceremony? Also, the website (but not my letter) refers to a "mandatory orientation program." I was under the impression that only two in-person appearances (interview; ceremony) were required, but now I'm doubting that.

For those following the thread for dates, I submitted at end of December and am tentatively scheduled for May 10 interview and May 14 ceremony.

Question:

I got my tentative dates about a month ago- still haven't gotten finalized date (tentative dates in March) which is making me a little nervous. What was the turn around time from tentative letter dates to finalized email dates for those that have finalized dates?

There used to be three, but now the orientation program is online so there are just two: interview and admission/oath ceremony.

Question, do we get the certificates of good standing at the oath ceremony? I need to submit that so that I can finally stop being a "law clerk"

I don't know how 1st Dept. works but in 2nd, you could pay $5 on day of swearing-in (or any day thereafter) for a certificate of good standing (which was valid for 30 days).

Any feb. 22 interview people out there? Waiting for our feb. 8 deadline to receive the time for the swearing in on the 26th.

Anyone who had the Jan. date, what time was your swearing in scheduled for? And does anyone know how long it actually takes?

hey guys question-

for anyone that had to use the MV-15 form to request your drivers history- do you know if I can request an electronic version and submit that? Seems faster and I really don't want to miss my 3/1 deadline to get stuff in and have my date pushed back. Just unsure if they want the hard copy version forwarded or if it would be okay to print out the electronic version and no ones returning my calls lol

They want a hard copy mailed from the DMV.
