I received a swear in date for Nov. 13th, yesterday. Also, I'm in need of an extra ticket if anyone is being admitted that day and doesn't need it! Thanks!

A. Took July Bar
B. Results October 23rd
C. Submitted October 24th
D. Notified next day of error in application. Fixed same day.
E. Notified via email November 20th of interview on November 25th.
F. Results and swear in TBD.

Tips: have your application ready to go before bar results come out and hand deliver your application.

How long does one have to apply for character and fitness after passing the New York bar? Seems like most people do it in November after the July bar.

Wondering if I could wait until January (I’m already barred elsewhere).

IIRC, you have up to 3 years from the date you sat for the UBE to submit a complete application before your UBE score expires. (Note, your MPRE and NYLE scores also expire. MPRE scores last 4 years, and I forget how long NYLE scores last.)

Obviously, don't procrastinate. Applying in November/December/January after passing the July bar is typical. Many take even longer to finish getting all the required affirmations. I'd say applying the day after results come out is relatively uncommon (though obviously, good for Miscuser for being so on top of things).
