Why did you decide to take admission in this university/college?

I choose to go to this university because I have found opportunities for personal growth and development not only academically, but also to expand beyond classroom knowledge, the world is big place and I thought attending a big school would better prepare me for life in real world. It’s the most prestigious university and near my state.

Any advice you want to give to law aspirants who want to take admission there.
However few suggestion that may help you;
You should have a reading habit since this profession, right from law school to legal practice, involves a lot of reading and good command over the English language since all major drafts and contracts are in English. For entrance test, you do not need to study the law at all in order to crack exam. In legal aptitude section, the question does not test your knowledge of the law but your ability to apply a given principle of law, therefore do not waste time in reading bare acts of statutes. This exam does not test your ability to do all the questions in record time. The aim is not to complete 100 questions. One should target only those questions the candidate is confident about or at least can make educational guess. One should know which questions to attempt and which questions to leave since there is 0.25 negative mark for each answer.
