Sometimes what you plan to write gets scrapped. As I sat down to post this evening, New York postponed the July Bar Exam. You can read the press release here: https://www.nybarexam.org/Press/PressRelease_NY_BarExam.pdf
This will have a major impact on a number of students. I encouraged my potential New York takers to look at other UBE jurisdictions with late filing deadlines in April and May. The NCBE Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admissions has information here.
This is unprecedented, so advice will be rampant. Everyone should evaluate their own individual situation to make a decision. More information on the timing for transferring scores is needed to know whether another UBE exam would work.
I hope everyone is healthy and safe during this unique situation.
