They said no release today but could that mean we get emails tonight with a press release tomorrow???

As others have mentioned, I doubt they have any clue.

They mostly say that so people stop calling.

I really doubt the people answering the phones have any idea about when the emails will go out. Given that they refuse to narrow the release down to even a specific week, there's no way they're telling everyone at the BOLE when the results will be released.

I think the people answering the phones are not the ones responsible for the late night emails - although they may well be the ones working on the public release. I wouldn't be surprised if the way it works is, the people making the public release get their sign-off once the emails are sent out. Seems like they are pretty particular about keeping it in this order. So it could be that they are certain that there is no public release today because they know the emails haven't yet been sent out. That also works with their prior statements that we'll be the first to know

Stupid question: How do we know which department we're allowed to apply for admission to if we do pass the bar? I see that the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th departments allow you to apply at any time and the 1st requires passing the bar first. But I don't know how you would know to apply to the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th department.

Thanks!

I thought we’re already told which one to apply to. I’m pretty sure I got an email saying the 3rd department is where I should apply.

On another note, “hhhuhhh-huuuuh-hhhhhuh-hhhhhuh....”

It is based on where you live or have your office. If you live or work in one of the departments then that is the department you get certified to. If you live/work outside of New York State then you get certified to the third department (Albany). As someone else mentioned, the department that you would apply to has been notified that you sat for the bar and you would apply to that department (unless you have moved between sitting and now).

It’s only Oct. 22, so I don’t think it’s guaranteed that they’ll be out tonight. I’m telling myself there’s a 50% chance.

I just do not understand how there were much less people taking the 2018 exam...... yet release date would be later than last year?
