As expected, a majority of our applicants study law. 93 of our 124 applicants are pursuing law related degrees, such as BA LLBs, BBA LLBs and BLS LLBs.
We received a large number of applications from undergraduates studying in Bangalore. 25% of our applicants hailed from Bangalore. By comparison, we received the same number of applicants from Mumbai and New Delhi combined. 25.82% of our applicants hailed from either Mumbai or New Delhi. In the future, we hope to see more applications from outside Bangalore.
A majority of applicants hailed from the South and the North. 40% of applicants stemmed from the South and 28% of applicants stemmed from the North.
Note that we grouped the Centre with the West and the Northeast with the East.
