How strict is New Jersey’s character and fitness??

Does anyone have any experience with them? Are they super strict in any areas?

Do they check references?? How long do they take to process applications?

(Thinking about transferring my UBE score)

Thanks!!

I recall C&F being a breeze and was just a friendly chat. Then again, my background and record is in the vein of Leave it to Beaver, so there wasn't much to discuss in any serious sense. The one thing I'm sure they would be sticklers about is any kind of lying or misrepresentation in your application. You would be amazed how much can be overlooked in someone's background when approving someone's C&F to be a lawyer. But lying is not something that will be overlooked. So make sure you are as honest and forthcoming as possible.
