Possible to port MBE from CA to NY?

Postby yespasscbx » Fri Aug 09, 2019 2:15 am

Hi NY takers, as I know MBE score transfer is allowed among UBE states, but CA is not a UBE state ... so, does anyone know if I can transfer my MBE score from CA to NY (I passed the CA bar) and sit for MEE and MPT only in NY?
Thanks!

NY does not accept transferred MBE scores. http://help.ncbex.org/score-services#mbe-2674

Note that even for UBE jurisdictions that accept transferred MBE scores (e.g., D.C.), you will need to take the MPT and MEE and will then end up with a non-portable UBE score. So there's no way to work around NY not taking transferred MBE scores.

It says that you can transfer a score from up to 3 previous administrations on this page: https://www.nybarexam.org/Docs/MBE%20Sc ... 0II%20.pdf

"PRIOR SCORE. You may transfer an MBE score to New York that was earned in another jurisdiction as part of a complete passing examination in that jurisdiction during any of the three administrations of the bar examination immediately preceding the examination for which you are applying. The Conditions of Use detailed above apply to the use of prior MBE scores. "

is this information out of date?

EDIT: it seems that you cannot transfer an MBE score only based on this: https://www.nybarexam.org/TheBar/NYBarE ... nGuide.pdf

"NEW YORK DOES NOT ACCEPT THE TRANSFER OF AN MBE SCORE FROM ANOTHER JURISDICTION TO NEW YORK"
