LAW GRADUATES FROM THE PROVINCES NEED NOT GO TO MANILA. REVIEWING IN MANILA IS TOO EXPENSIVE!
Prominent Manila-based bar reviewers from San Beda College, San Sebastian College, UST, UP, UE and Arellano University are coming to the provinces to hold pre-bar review classes in 5 major cities. They are in Cagayan de Oro, Zamboanga, Davao, Iloilo and Baguio.
The latest addition to C.P.R.S. centers is Baguio. The center will be based at Saint Louis University (SLU), Baguio City.
Undeniably, having your bar review in Manila entails substantial amount of money. Last year, a bar reviewee preparing for the bar exams incurred review expenses of about P190,000.00 when reviewing in Manila. The expenses consist of review fee, food, dormitory or boarding house expense, tranportation, clothing, and other living costs.
Whereas, a reviewee in the province and having his review at C.P.R.S. spent only about P95,000.00 including his expenses in staying in Manila for the month of September. The reviewee was able to save substantial expenses for board and lodging.
Thus, reviewing for the bar exams need not be expensive!
