The bar exam could easily be one of the most dreadful exams anyone can take in the Philippines. For Law students, it is the last hurdle they’d have to triumph over before they can officially call themselves lawyers.
You wanna know just how hard bar exams are? Imagine — out of over 6,000 students that took the bar exam last year, only 1,724 actually passed! That’s a measly rate of 25.5%.
Of these 1,724 passers, there are re-takers, mothers, fathers, working students, professionals, and other kinds of people from all walks of life.
Some of the most notable passers, aside from the top-notchers, of course, are these #Lodi lovers from De La Salle University.
Just picture how sweet it would be to struggle with your partner together, only for the two of you to reach your dreams together.

Well, that’s exactly what happened to Lanz Olives and Michelle Vale Cruz. They managed to pass the dreaded bar exam together, and at such a young age — they are both lawyers at just 24 years old!
Lanz and Michelle both hail from Cavite, and it was their first try on the bar exams.

Sweet, sweet victory!
Now, they have all the time in the world to plan the next stage of their lives. However, they aren’t keen on taking their three-year relationship to the next level yet, as they wish to focus on their Law careers first.
Lanz and Michelle are both eyeing jobs at separate law firms after passing the bar exam.
The dedication and patience of this couple is truly admirable. See, even though in a relationship, they studied for the bar separately.
“We did not disturb each other during our review periods, and it worked!” Vale Cruz said.
Needless to say, their sacrifice proved worth it in the end. Netizens react:
Congratulations, love birds! May you serve as an inspiration to many others!
