What To Expect?

Taking up political science was fun, I became socially aware, abreast with current developments, learned to appreciate the political dynamics in our country. I excelled back in college, graduated with honors and was active in various extra curricular activities.

After college, I took up Law, it was not a walk in the park. I was exposed to my ignorance, that there were still a lot of things that I really do not know. In law school, you have to split hairs, study every night, burn the midnight oil, prepare for recitations everyday.

Skills that I've acquired in my study political science and Law are logical thinking, creative skills, comprehensive analysis, proper grammar. You can't take everything at their face value, I learned to dig dipper, analyze, fully comprehend the facts, pay attention to detail while meeting established deadlines. Also, I appreciated the socratic method in learning, with that method, I got to improve memorization skills and argumentation skills.
