Ind. Courts - Indiana Board of Law Examiners Portal is down

An applicant for the July bar has sent the ILB this note, which I've edited slightly:

I am emailing about the outage of the Indiana Bar Examiners website that allows individuals to work on and submit their applications to sit for the Indiana State Bar. I am a 3L at XXX. The application for the July bar, recently, opened at the beginning of March. It is due April 1, 2017.

I hoped to begin working on the online application this week, but when I went to the site I was greeted with "We're sorry...The Indiana Board of Law Examiners Portal is currently unavailable. Please try again later." The link to the site is http://www.in.gov/judiciary/ble/portal.html

This occurred all day long, yesterday. This morning, I tried to access the site again and received the same message. I just called the Bar Examiners office and they gave no explanation as to why the site was down.

They said they hoped the site would be up again soon, but would not indicate a timeframe. I asked if they would be extending the bar application deadline if the outage continued and they indicated that there were no plans for that as of now.

Right now, I can't even view the application to anticipate what information to gather. I am sure this would be of interest to others, as well, as many students are on pins and needles to get the application done.
