    May mga Letranites Bar Tpnotchers din tayo lalo na dati.
  • lalo na dati...

    sana ngayon din.. well, mas ok sana kung magooffer nang LegMgt ang letran.. We have a lot of competitive and the best profs in the said field.. Moreso, they are practitioners which i also see as an advantage.. and through that they will also get into better lawschools like ateneo

    PoliScie on the other hand, hones the critical/analytical thinking kind of approach, which could be used by the lawyers.. Kumbaga, sa legmgt theoretical knowledge, sa poliscie attitude formation... parehong mabangis na course pa.. heheh!

    ^^Don't forget the high school alumni who also excelled in other universities and became lawyers.
  • Happy New Year! Arriba!
  • Hmmm....lalabas kaya pangalan ko dito sa thread nito? Hehehe

    3 years na ako nagtatake ng law.
    Sa Letran polsci batch ko, sa 11 na nagtake ng San Beda Law entrance exam, ako lang yung nakakuha ng blue slip na "PASSED", hehehe.

    Mabuhay ang Letran Polsci!

    Btw, naging prof ko si Hazel Nuyda dati sa isang subject nung 1st time niya nagturo sa Letran polsci, nasa San Sebastian Law na siya nun, member yata siya ng sorority ng Suprema Lex sa UST Law at pinapabili kami ng libro niya kaya natandaan ko hehe.

    When I met Ian and asked him bakit hindi siya kumuha sa San Beda Law, he said "kukuhanin lang ng San Beda Law yung pera ko", hehehe, so true.

    Nag Dean's List pala nitong 1st sem si Johnsen Salazar(known as "Ice" in Letran) of Letran Polsci batch 2004, currently in his 4th Year in FEU Law. Ayan na special mention kita :P

    In my polsci batch, as of the moment:

    1 is in Arellano Law (from SBC Mendiola (1 sem) to SBC Alabang (2 sems)

    3 in SBC Alabang

    3 in San Sebastian (from SBC Mendiola, two of them 2 sems, one 3 sems)

    1 in Perpetual (from SBC Mendiola (2sems) to SBC Alabang(2sems)

    1 in FEU Law (from SBC Mendiola (5sems)

    1 in SBC Mendiola (6sems)

    1 hindi na tinuloy after matanggal sa SBC Mendiola(2sems) at San Sebastian (1sem)

    As Ma`am Rivera would say, magagaling talaga mga Letran Polsci, nung early years ng Letran Polsci in the mid 90's sa UP Law majority nakakapasok. The best gumawa ng recommendation letter si Ma`am Rivera nung nagentrance test ako sa Ateneo Law hehe.

    My parting words, walang kwenta yung curriculum namin nung time namin sa Letran, kami yung last polsci batch sa curriculum nun, since it trains you more to become a "Diplomat" than a would be law student/lawyer kaya walang knowledge ang na-carry over nung nagstart ako ng lawschool.

    My advice sa mga graduating Letran Polsci, take these Law entrance exams in this order:

    1. UP Law
    2. Ateneo Law
    3. San Beda Law
    4. UST Law

    Kung hindi pa pumapasa...

    5. FEU Law
    6. Arellano Law
    7. San Sebastian Law
    8. UE Law
    9. Perpetual
    10. Philippine Law School

    Kung wala pa rin, hanap ka muna ng trabaho :)

    I am a BS Accountancy grad from Letran Manila and I am planning to take up law. Can you give me advice on what to expect in a law entrance exam?

    Oris it better for me to take up my Master's instead?

    In the law entrance exams I've taken (UP, Ateneo, San Beda)

    my comments (just my opinion ok)

    UP's law entrance exam - well madali lang siya, it just covers the basics(kung nagaral ka nung high school mo, ok ka na) and there's an essay in the end, but as "The Great Examiner" would say, "yung mga nadalian sa exam ay yung ang mga hindi naintindihan mga tanong" (can't remember the exact quote, but that's pretty much the translated version) Btw, UP only gets the top 200 students in the country, the first 100 who did well in the exam are shoe-ins, the next 100 students depends on the interview.

    Ateneo's law entrance exam - more on reasoning, basic logic and hypos. To pass, you must not only perform well in the exam, 95+ percentile rank but your college transcript should be breath taking or malakas talaga ang "hatak" mo, alam niyo na yun.

    San Beda's law entrance exam - basic math (lahat kaya sagotin mentally), basic english, etc, but yung barometer ng exam kung pupunta ka sa passed, waiting or failed, depends on what you get sa last part ng exam (the one before the essay question) and it is the logic. Yung mga shapes, what comes next, what is the pattern, etc., dyan majority na dadale.

    Should you take up law or a masteral?

    You're the only one who can answer your question my friend. You can also be a CPA Lawyer.

    Just remember, that the legal profession is not a business, its primary concern is the administration of justice and public service.

    But if you want to have both after 5 years, try DLSU-FEU's Master of Business Administration-Juris Doctor Dual Degree Program.

    Hope that helps.

    If there are more questions, don't hesitate to ask :)
