Do I have to wait for bar results before they can start the Medical Clearance process?

You can reference my post in November of 2009 regarding the timeline of getting started with the JAG core. J couldn't start the Medical Clearance until he had passed the bar. If I remember correctly, pretty much once they accepted him, contingent on him passing the bar, there wasn't a single thing further we could do but wait.

UPDATE: Looks like you can now be medically cleared before receiving your bar results.


  1. Thank you so much for the information! Your blog is great!

  2. I actually was able to complete MEPS before I found out I passed the bar. I was approved medically in July before I even took the bar. I didn't find out I passed the bar until mid-October.

  3. Mike, thanks for the comment. I updated the post so others know that things have changed. Thank you!!
