It's not possible. Every state that uses the Multistate exam administers the exam on the same day, with their state specific day either before or after the multistate. NY I think usually has their state specific day first, and the multistate second. The CA bar exam is different in that it is 3 days long, with the Multistate in the middle. So without being able to sit two exams simultaneously 3000 miles apart, it's impossible to take them both during the same administration.
That's cool how you referenced a case.
I'm so far from the end of my tether right now that I reckon I could knit myself some socks with the slack.
I suggest that you do it this way: you take CA first. Why? Well, NY grants MBE reciprocity, whereas CA does not. I learned this the hard way. So if you're deadset on taking both in a July-Feb type arrangement, you have two options: 1) you take a full 2 NY bar exam in July, and follow up with a full 3 day CA bar exam in Feb as CA does not grant reciprocity, or 2) you take the full 3 day CA bar exam in July, and take a 1 day NY bar exam in Feb.A couple of notes:-I'm fairly certain that taking the MBE twice has taken at least 1 year off my life-if you're starting out in NY biglaw (as i was ), make sure to double check with your firm before you sign up for CA first. unfortunately for me, i was req'd to take NY first (i.e. it wasn't optional if i wanted to keep my job).-studying for the CA bar on my own while attempting to keep up with work assignments and billables was a f'ing nightmare. honestly, i don't recommend the process. more specifically, only do this to yourself if you **ABSOLUTELY KNOW** that at some point in the relatively near future you want to use your CA bar membership for practice. don't sign up for this thing because "oh what the hell i studied pretty hard in July and i think that i remember a lot of it and it would probably look pretty good to have CA and NY on the resume" - nope, not worth it.
