3L, Question about UBE Transferring, and Gaining Multi-State Admission

Post by unknown94 » Thu Jan 14, 2021 10:43 am

I am wondering if I take the UBE, (which I plan to), can I gain admission to multiple states right away. Looking to gain admission in two states on the East Coast and one other UBE jurisdiction.

Do I have to go through the bar application process for each state. Or do I just go through the bar application in the state I plan on working in right away, and then transfer the UBE score later to gain admission?

I'm wondering this because some bar application deadlines are coming for my non-primary states, and wondering if I should be worried about that.

Thanks.

Every state will require that you go through the application process, and they all do C&F. It's a pain every time.

Take the UBE in the state where you'll be practicing. After you get the results, apply for admission in as many states as you want - no deadlines to worry about

Are you paying your own way for admission, or is an employer picking up the tab? This would get expensive fast if you're getting admitted to a bunch of states for no particular reason. Also keep in mind the different CLE requirements of each state. Your UBE score is good for a few years, so I don't see a ton of upside in this strategy... maybe I'm missing something here.
