  3. When you have taken your LSAT test and got a passing score, you are now ready to apply to a law school in New Hampshire. It must be an ABA-approved school located in the USA, as the Supreme Court of the Bar Admissions Committee of New Hampshire has decided.
  4. If you have successfully finished the ABA-approved law school and got a Juris Doctor degree, then you can apply to sit for the state bar exam.
  5. Now that you are going to take the state bar exam, remember that you have only four attempts. If you fail all four times, you can’t retake it anymore.
