Interesting. I didn't know that. I suppose it makes sense though: No need to determine C&F until you've proven that you can at least pass the bar.
Interesting. I guess that's that I get for extrapolating. I most definitely submitted my moral character information well after taking the California exam, but I was already admitted in another jurisdiction at the time. It appears the procedure is different for new graduates.
Quote Interesting. I didn't know that. I suppose it makes sense though: No need to determine C&F until you've proven that you can at least pass the bar. Yep, all I had to submit to take the NY bar was a handwriting sample, proof of law school graduation, and a transcript.

I'm a former investigator for the FL Board of Bar Examiners and the first step is full disclosure on your law school applications. Also, I'd recommend that you do a lot of volunteer work. This will help prove rehab when you apply for bar admittance. As an investigator I had cases of applicants who committed felonies and got admission to law school and the Bar. Yes, the conduct is taken into consideration, but so are other factors such as: age at the time of the offense, any patterns of behavior, evidence of rehab, and the overall character and fitness of the person. Good luck!
Maybe he is just trying to be helpful and talking from real experience opposed to speculation from what people that for the most part have no idea what they are talking about.
Maybe I find it unlikely that someone would pose as a Florida Bar Investigator and if they did they really need to be more imaginative. At the end of the day for this kind of question you should call the bar of each state as they will know and not random unidentified people on the internet.
