The representative answers on the BOLE site, did those essays receive close to perfect (ie 75-80/80) scores? Or are they average answers (50-55/80)?

It did indeed say "or early November" at one point, but this certainly isn't a new change.

The July 2017 answers say this "The following are sample candidate answers that received scores superior to the average
scale score awarded for the relevant essay." Not sure what "superior to the average scale score" translates to numerically.

Anyone else having trouble with BOLE? Neurotically checking BOLE for shits and giggles. When I just went to check, I kept getting a script error, then redirected to a .gov site. Finally it logged in correctly but I couldn't help but wonder if they're working on the site????

Holy me! All these theories we are propounding just to believe results are going to be released. Do they need to “work on the site” before results are posted? :D

You guys are cracking me up and it’s helping me deal now. :D

I actually had trouble accessing the site too. It may mean nothing, but..

I couldn’t resist and called BOLE and asked if the results will be released today and the woman said “not today”. I then asked if they’ll be released tomorrow and she said “I don’t know, they should be released soon, we will update the website if there are any changes to the schedule”. Doesn’t help much except for the fact that we now know for sure it won’t be today. Might not even be tomorrow. To be safe, I am predicting Wednesday for the release.

This is people who already passed in an exam before J18, right?

Don't even bother checking the website or calling. There are no announcements, you'll just know via email.

For those checking (and are wondering what it looks like), this was my mine last July (identifying info obviously removed):

I doubt it'll change :lol: Good luck everyone! 8)

Well that is just unhelpful of them. There is no "schedule" to update. Unless, of course, "late October" changes to "early November" or "sometime in the foreseeable future".

"Here's the list of applicants to the NY Bar that need to be interviewed on 10/18 to see if they're "fit" to practice law. Good luck!"

It just has to do with Character and Fitness. You can "pass" that and not the bar - provided you did it well before now.

In the first department at least, you are not eligible for C&F review unless you pass so all those people passed. The question is when (i.e. how long did it take for them to get called for C&F after passing and is there any way some of those people took it J18 and already got an email)?

No way. That info would have leaked. At least one person would have posted here, Reddit, or FB

I’m almost certain this is a list of people who passed the bar prior to the J18 administration AND already submitted their bar applications.

But how do we know what she meant by "release"? Did you specifically ask about emails? Otherwise, she could have been speaking about the official press release.

I am pretty sure it said "or early November" until last week....

I checked last week and it only said “late October.” It did say “early November” but not as of last week. A Reddit thread from early October mentions the change back then.
