New York Bar Exam - Late submission of the documents


Namasthé

Dear all,

I am writing because I am truly stressed out about the NY Bar Exam requirements. Please note that my issue has NOTHING to do with the eligibility because I am sure that I have all the requirements. The only problem is that my application process was substantially slowed down due to bureaucratic issues. I was able to only submit all the documents in January. Has anyone before encountered the same situation? Will I be able to sit for the July exam?

I know that they indicate 6 months for the review of the documentation, but I am desperate at this point because have a job offer that requires me to sit before I start.

PLEASE HELP!

It took them about 8 months to clear my file and that was a long time before the pandemic, when everything just seemed to move faster. The BOLE takes a long time. I know of no tricks to speed this process up, I am afraid.

Thank you. 
Did you get admitted to the session you had applied for or did you get delayed in taking the exam?

Hello! I was wondering if you were able to make it to the July exam, I am submitting my documents late as well, and I wonder if there is any hope for me.
