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.
When you have somebody dying because they are poor and black or poor and white or because of whatever they are ... that erases everything that's great about this country.
