      My experience at a National Law University

      Remarks -
      7.7 /10

      The location of our university is a village near sabbavaram, leaving us with very less facilities, like no food delivery through zomato or swiggy.

      Admission -

      To get to the premier law Universities in the country, one has to give CLAT. So in the hope of getting into a National Law University I gave CLAT. After giving CLAT the results came out adn I was not very happy, my All India Rank was 2391. I did not get admission through a normal list which was released in the CLAT website. But then I waited for vacancies for specific colleges and I got into many other colleges such as - NUSRL Ranchi, MNLU Nagpur, DNLU Jabalpur etc and lastly DSNLU Visakhapatnam which interested me the most, so I took admission into this college.

      College management plays an important role in shaping the future of the university. Our college administration is well equipped with efficient staff and I believe that our college is surely in safe hands. They are student friendly and helps the students in need.

      Entrance Preview -

      I took CLAT which is basically the entrance exam to get admission in National Law Universities across the country. My rank in the CLAT was 2677 and based upon my ranking I opted for Damodaram Sanjivayya National Law Universities. No doubt it has its own benefits because you get to spend the 5 years of your college life at such a beautiful place of Visakhapatnam.

      Bad is that so far we don't have infrastructure and good is that lack of infrastructure made us learn many things staying out away from parents, managing money, adjustment, and enjoying the beauty of this beautiful city of destiny, vizag.
