No call for me, just heard it from a friend.

Hoping we don't have to wait until mid-November for results... that's the estimate they gave when I called :roll:

Definitely an overshoot. If they tell you a realistic date and that date comes and goes, people will be super pissed that results aren’t out yet.

Checking in...patiently waiting... according to past years release dates it seems it be the third week of October which would be the week of the 16th-20th for us so your probably right. I'll be pissed if its beyond those dates.

So does anyone know if all their information like law school certificate or proof of PR class/MPRE was received or do you message your processor to confirm?

Wanna find out so scores aren't withheld when they actually do release.

I'm hoping maybe one of you knows the answer to this question. For NJ C & F, do we request the driving abstracts and upload them to the website, or do we need to send them to NJ through the mail?

Has anyone received an email from an attorney saying they were assigned to review your C&F application? As a retaker, I've had missing info, issues with the app that an "inside" staffer with the Board has reached out, never an outsider....anyone out there have this?

A friend of mine just called them... they said the results will be coming out "in the next few days." I'm thinking it will be Tuesday because last year, results came out on Tuesday 10/18.

I can't name my source, but I can confirm that I was told the possibility of of results being released tomorrow. If not tomorrow no doubt by next Tuesday.

How states like NY, with over 10,000 test takers, can get scores back by the end of this month, while NJ, with only 1,000 test takers, typically gets scores back merely 1 week earlier, I'll never understand...

Does anyone know the time of day we can expect to receive our results? I don't know anyone who sat for the Feb exam, but a prior July test taker (albeit, prior to the UBE) said she got it at 11:45 PM. I'm hoping it's around midnight so that I'll be home... :?

I don't think this is right. On the NJ BOE website, it says: "Applications for the February 2018 New Jersey Bar Examination are open. Timely deadline is October 31st." Would it really be fair to release scores AFTER 10/31 and penalize us (via paying a higher fee for signing up later), when we wouldn't have any idea beforehand as to whether or not we even need to sign up again?

I'm a NY re-taker and what they did for us was just extend the deadline to apply for the exam. Unsure if Jersey is the same but maybe?
