Good. What does the notice say? Any idea what the process entails?


I’ve got to wait 10 days for my application to be official certified by the admission board.

Then I’ve just got to fill out and have a notary sign a pdf of my oath of admission. Way more simple than I was expecting.

Thanks. That's interesting. So....they have a pre-certification prior to the final certification....which takes place 10 days later.

If they have a pre-certification, why don't they just send out the pre-certifications all at once....or just do away with the pre-certification and only send out final certifications. Better yet, only send notices to people who have to meet with Character and Fitness (there are VERY few in any group of examinees) and let everyone else swear in without the serial contingencies and waiting on the Bar office.

Poor guy. I feel your anguish. I'm sorry for your situation.

What does certification entail? Is it a simple or time consuming task? I can't find anything on the process.

So if memory serves the Committee on Admissions is not accepting calls til Tuesday. Of course the gov't may well be shut down again by then.

That's nice. Certifications should have been completed before the shutdown.
