“Brilliance without integrity makes us puwit ng baso, breakable and fleeting. Integrity allows us to withstand and constantly scatter light, enduring with brilliance.”- Raoul Angelo Atadero
Like most other bar exam takers, Atadero had spent much of last year preparing for the grueling November tests conducted at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila.
He was glued to law books for up to 14 hours daily between April and November last year.
“I started studying mid-April all the way up to November. I get up at 7 a.m., start studying at 8 a.m. and continue until 9 p.m., including breaks for meals. It’s really pretty standard for bar takers,” Atadero said.
