Disadvantages to late bar application

Post by dex1259 » Sun Jan 19, 2020 2:18 pm

Hi all,

My state (TX) has three deadlines for the bar application: the timely deadline, late filing deadline ($150 penalty fee), and final filing deadline ($300 penalty).

Are there significant disadvantages to applying for one of the later deadlines, aside from the penalty fee? I'm guessing that C&F approval might take longer and I might have fewer choices when it comes to the testing center. Is there anything else?

The "timely deadline" is coming up on February 1 and I'd like more time to triple check some of the details on the C&F portion of my application, if possible.
