And yes it's just for this state. To practice in another state you have to take their bar, although if and when I practice for 5+ years in Indiana then most states will offer reciprocation where I can apply and get a license without the exam if I can show I've been practicing for that long and don't have disciplinary issues and what not.
Indiana eh? Guess I'm compelled to root for you then. Good luck, and try not to focus on the fact that your life is basically over if you fail.
