So here's the rub, srkv. My financiers (read: parents) are not too keen on letting me take the San Beda law entrance exam since they're confident I'd be sailing through the ALS exam and should I not perform well in my interview in UP, Ateneo's already in the bag. But personally, I'd still like to take the San Beda exam. You can never be too complacent.
I cannot warn you enough on how serious time pressure is especially for Part 2 of the ALS exam. Brush up on your critical thinking. Know if an assumption was made or not, if an argument is strong or weak, and so on.
Btw, may I just ask what your undergrad is/was and from what school you are taking/you took it? Kaya yan!

I major in Political Science in UPM.
Anyway, I'd rather be prudent, so I'll be taking San Beda's entrance exam also. I'm just waiting for my requirements, I'd want to take the exam on Feb 23 (or 26?).
Should I not hurdle UP's interview, I won't mind going to Ateneo or San Beda - KUNG pumasa hehe. Lahat naman yan magagaling. Buti pa kayo, assured na ng law school, if ever.
However, my salient concern about San Beda, just like you, is retention. SBC Law's mortality rate, at least in the past few years, is hovering around 80% compared to Ateneo's 50-60% (NB: just my estimates).

kayo naman, nag-react kaagad. malay nyo naman, ibig nya palang sabihin pumasa sya last year o nung mga nakaraang taon na walang interview pero hindi kaagad sya nag-law school dahil sa kung anong dahilan.
sa mga mage-exam sa ateneo law, madali lang yung exam (kung ikukumpara sa lae) pero marami rin kasing naga-apply kaya may mga tao ring hindi matatanggap. pwede namang magpa-reconsider pero meron talagang hindi na talaga tinatanggap. tsaka YES, for some people, may interview part sya. pero kagaya sa UP noong nakaraang taon, meron din silang ine-exempt. good luck!
