It's still true. Those issues boil down to individual state bar examiner requirements. For example, some states allow attorneys to pass the bar who have a felony conviction, others do not. Some don't mention undergraduate requirements others do. Some states focus on financials, others have lower requirements. The National Bar Examiners web site has a huge chart breaking down individual state requirements. Texas, for example, does not allow any felony convictions, but Delaware doesn't mention felonies: they just say all issues are considered as a whole. It would sooooo suck to take and pass the bar in a state and then not be admitted because you filed bankruptcy 20 years ago or something.
