Has anyone attempted to switch their oral board dates from the Spring to the Fall or Fall to Spring? What is the protocol? What are the fees? Is this possible? Thanks.:scared:

Call the ABA to explain why you need to switch.

Be honest and don't lie.

I was schedule to take Spring April Orals in 2005. However my father passed away in March 6 weeks before the boards. I had to attend to other matters and help my mother out.

I explained the situation. I wrote a letter and they wanted a death certificate also. Once I furnished the certificate, they movede to the Fall 2005 orals date.

If you have a legitimate excuse, explain it to the ABA.

No fees were ever charged to me to switch.
