Character and fitness

I am a 3L who is worried about the character and fitness portion of the Bar exam-
specifically, here's my dirty laundry:

Terrible credit.  Defaulted on 2 credit cards and had car repossessed, now there is a judgment lien against me for 10k.  Of course, my reason was "i could afford it at the time, but i lost my job and went to law school and halfway through i couldn't afford it anymore.  i tried to negotiate and plead my case, etc"

Any chance i can get licensed?

Yes, assuming you are telling the truth, have made honest efforts to repay the debt and write a thorough explanation about how the circumstances that led to this mess were unforeseen.
