Hey, also a foreign Feb 2018 passer here. Just wondering when you first heard back from them? Also how long did it take them to get back to you once you’d submitted all the finals docs?

Hi! First heard from them second week of July. I sent the additional docs the same week and got the receipt confirmation about 5 days later. So it took them about 1 week to get back to me. Hope that helps

Hi! Mines on the same day and time. Would also like to know what time the ceremony starts/ends. How are you getting to Albany? I’m coming in from overseas so was looking at taking the bus from NYC to Albany (greyhound and megabus comes up a lot) but not sure if that’s the best way to go. Flights from NY are oddly expensive.

Thanks so much for updating. Did you post it on the 22nd April and the Third Department received it in May or did you post it early April and they acknowledged receipt on the 22 April?

Hi all. Are we able to request for a later interview/ swear in date once assigned?

I’m currently working overseas and won’t be able to take off unless I give my employer couple of months notice.

Any advice is much appreciated

Hi all - any insight into admission application review / ultimate admission date in the following circumstances:

1. When did you pass the bar exam?
Feb 2019

2. When did you submit your application?
Sept 27, 2019 (receipt date) - delay between Feb and Sept was because I could only do MPRE in Aug

Received confirmation of receipt but still waiting to hear back substantively.

Any other recent applicants who have had an answer already?

Give it some time, I submitted my application on July 27, 2019 (received confirmation of receipt that day). I checked in with the admissions office by phone last week, and they said they'd likely be reviewing my application this week, so they're basically running 3 months out from date of receipt. If you want more detail, give them a call directly and just inquire politely - they've been nothing but helpful on the phone both times I've called, and provided information (the first time was to ensure receipt of my application, I was being paranoid and called right after receiving confirmation of delivery from the courier, before receiving the email confirmation).

Thanks for the info. That's longer than I was hoping for but I guess there's not a lot that can be done.

Let me know when you do get a response (and how far out they schedule your interview/ceremony)

I received an email with two follow-up questions on Nov. 6, and sent responses that day. On Nov. 7 I received the email notifying me I was set to schedule my character and fitness interview and the swearing in ceremony I wished to attend.

1. When did you pass the bar exam?
July 2019

2. When did you submit your application?
Tracking info shows that my admission packet reached the court on October 28, 2019. Received email confirmation of receipt on October 29, 2019 and provided notice of certification via email on the same date.

3. Did you have to amend or supplement your application?
No.

4. When did the bar set your interview date?
Received email on November 14, 2019 saying my papers have been received and are complete. That email contained a link to a scheduling website where I could pick between two ceremony dates: January 23 or April 8, 2020. Next, there were three options for the interview date (January 22 AM/ PM, January 23 AM). Options will not be available once the quota is filled up.

5. When will the interview/swearing in ceremony be?
Both January 23, 2020.

I was worried they would take longer to review my application because of my foreign credentials and some traffic infractions, but it turned out to be just fine. This forum has been very helpful! Best of luck to everyone going through the admissions process.
