      CNLU: A Paradox at its Best

      Remarks -
      5 /10

      I would conclude by saying that, the administration deserves 3/10 & the college faculty deserves 4/10. Now, coming to college life overall, it would surely provide you one hell of an experience. In the end, the institute merely provides you an atmosphere, rest depends upon how you tackle life and the challenges therein.

      I choose this college because of the NLU tag as it is part of the CLAT committee, the only good about this college is the lush green campus. The bad thing about this college is its student culture and placement, due to the low diversified student ratio there has low understanding among college students. It just strains the inter-student relation and gave the path to student politics on the various dirty basis, it is the worst thing about this college.
