Also, the laptop registration is separate right?



I got an email from DCCA saying they received my application and it has been accepted for processing. Admission tickets and further information will be emailed to us two weeks before the exam.

No info on laptop registration though.

Anyone have an idea of what a passing score on each essay would be? Should we be shooting for a 4/6 or 5/6,etc on essays? What about MPTs?

Has anyone received information on their admission ticket? I submitted my application on the last day possible and my application status is still pending for review.

And they could have been a little nicer when they sent us the wrong laptop registration date! Like ... "We apologize for the confusion" or something?!

I submitted 12/20. At least I finally got confirmation I can take the damn thing and this is all not actually for nothing.

I haven't received any final confirmation beyond "your application was accepted for processing" and when I called today, they were rather snippy cutting me off and telling me to call back in a few days to get an update.

Just received admission ticket today. The ticket contains the caveat "not valid unless all documents have been received by Feb. 23"

I have this terrible anxiety that I'm going to show up on test day and not be admitted to sit for the exam. And it seems to me the application website is down now. How do we check if they have all the requisite documents?

When I log on to my application and check the progress, everything is checked green except the character & fitness. I also have a message below the progress bar that says "Congratulations! Your application has been reviewed and accepted. You are now approved to sit for the upcoming UBE Exam."

If you are seeing something different or don't see the message, I would call the committee and make sure that they received all the documents you need (MPRE score report, law school certification & certificate of good standing if applicable to you). If you do see it, you are good to go and I would not stress about it! We have enough shit to stress about at this point haha.

Confirming I also have the "Congratulations! Your application has been reviewed and accepted. You are now approved to sit for the upcoming UBE Exam. " banner when I log in. Also got my admission ticket today.

Anyone else experience anxiety... and frustration with barbri!? I'm about to tear my hair out.
