Has anyone here done something similar and will it affect my admission? I have enough hours from other pro bono gigs.

That's what I did for an employer affidavit. I'm still waiting to hear if that's sufficient or if they want me to try harder to get it.

Yes, that's it!

Just got an email saying my "Orientation Affirmation Completion" is missing. Assuming that's the 2 hour online video?

Ugh -- could it be the player you're using? Like it's cropping it out somehow?

It’s possible. Chrome wouldn’t even load, but on safari i have it on full screen and I’m really looking in the last video. Maybe it’s on the left! Wait, maybe right!

okay so I walked my application in on November 28, 2017 and received a tentative ceremony date enclosed with an attorney registration form and instructions re: the check on Friday.

Anyone know how long it takes to get the emailed official notice?

I received a general information email the other day with an attachment providing info for the interview and the swearing in ceremony. The page on the swearing in ceremony says that everyone is limited to two guests. I had previously asked at my firm and was told there was no limit.

Can anyone from previous ceremonies speak to whether they actually check number of guests or if you're cool as long as you're not rolling in with like 10 people?

I'm very late to the party here, but I've finished 3/4 of the videos and the codes have been very easy to spot so far. They're all there, you might just need to scroll down or adjust your screen to make sure the video isn't cutting off for you.

No, I received the email with the finalized dates and orientation video information and then about a week later received a general information email that included the 2 guest limit information. I still haven't been able to figure out if the limit is actually enforced though...
