(6) Prohibited Contacts.  An applicant shall not, either directly or through an agent, contact any member of the Board of Law Examiners or any member of the Supreme Court regarding the questions on any section of the examination, grading procedures, or an applicant's answers.  This provision does not prohibit an applicant from seeking verification of the MBE score as permitted by (5) above.

Any allegation that an applicant has violated this section shall be investigated by the Committee on Character and Fitness using the procedures in sections (g) and (l)(5) of this rule.  If it is determined that the applicant has violated this section, the Supreme Court may take such action as it deems appropriate.  This may include, but is not limited to, finding the applicant unfit for admission, prohibiting the applicant from using the results of the examination for admission, and/or preventing the applicant from reapplying for admission for up to five (5) years.  Further, if the applicant has already been admitted, the Supreme Court may vacate the admission or discipline the lawyer under Rule 413 of the South Carolina Appellate Court Rules.  Finally, an applicant committing one of these prohibited acts shall be guilty of contempt of the Supreme Court and may be punished accordingly.

(g) Determination of Character and Fitness for Admission.

(2) Determination of Fitness of Certain Law Students.  A student enrolled in an ABA Approved Law School who has a character problem that might disqualify the student from being admitted to practice law may have the matter resolved by filing a provisional application.  The application shall be made on a form approved by the Committee on Character and Fitness and shall be filed in duplicate with the Clerk of the Supreme Court.  Each request must be accompanied by a non-refundable fee of $100.  The Committee on Character and Fitness may begin an immediate investigation of the individual's character and shall promptly notify the individual of its determination.  No adverse inference concerning an applicant's character and fitness shall be drawn because the applicant filed a provisional application, nor does the filing of a provisional application relieve an applicant from fully complying with the normal application process.

(3) Review by Supreme Court of Fitness Determination; Re-application.  Any applicant dissatisfied with the determination of the Committee on Character and Fitness may petition the Supreme Court for review within fifteen (15) days of the date of the notification advising the applicant of the Committee's determination.  The petition shall comply with the requirements of Rule 240 of the South Carolina Appellate Court Rules, to include the filing fee required by that rule.  An applicant who is found not to be qualified by the Committee or whose petition for review of the Committee's determination has been denied may not reapply for admission until two (2) years after the date of the notification advising the applicant of the Committee's determination.

(2) Special Admission Ceremonies.  On petition, the Supreme Court may schedule applicants for admission on other dates based on compelling circumstances such as illness or irreconcilable conflicts that prevent the applicant from appearing at one of the ceremonies established in (1) above.  Applicants who are ineligible to participate in one of the admission ceremonies established in (1) above due to their failure to timely submit proof of completion of the MPRE or the Course of Study on South Carolina Law are not eligible to be admitted at a special admission ceremony.
