Eto naman question ko: okay lang kaya na pumasok sa law school although ang pre-law ko is engineering?
Originally posted by KuyaDanny I got rid of some of the posts which got the discussion diverted. As to the question of the appropriateness of an engineering background as preparation for a legal career - I know several lawyers who have done exactly that, and are successful today.
I think what matters more is that you are committed to the profession, and that you are ready to use your time, talent, and discipline in the study and practice of the law. If the school authorities will admit you, that should mean they think you have what it takes.
If I were asked to decide on your case, though, I would probably want to know when you decided to pursue a law career, and your reasons. I will be assuming that law school wasn't really part of your plans when you chose a course for college. After all, engineering is a five-year (maybe longer) program, while more traditional "pre-law" courses take only four years. Why did you spend that extra year?
Can somebody provide me an idea of how much it will cost if ever I want to study law in Ateneo (tuition fees, miscellaneous, books, etc.)? I can't see any data in the website that provides a breakdown of the expenses per semester. I'm planning to enrol either this school year or next school year but I don't know if I can afford to study law in Ateneo. Thanks a lot.
