Bad things about the University based on your personal experience
As such from my perspective there is no bad thing at college. However, I can share my experience about one fundamental thing – life is unpredictable.
It might be good, it might be bad, it might be weird, and it might not interest you, but expect anything to happen. For example, you might have a wonderful job this moment, and be fired the very next moment.
College life prepares you for all of this. It is a perfect blend of joy and hardships. You meet different people, you interact with them, you learn about their cultures and grow as a person.
You will understand how to talk to different people, how to judge their behavior, thus helping you with important life skills.
How’s the faculty?
I got blessed with some great teachers and mentors who helped me figure out my path in life and I’ll always be grateful to them for that, as I found my calling.
The faculty at LCD is highly skilled and empathetic, which according to me is very important and they try their best to build incredible lawyers for the nation.
The best part is that it is very easy to approach any faculty for any help regardless of it being related to the curriculum or not.
