    Thanks in advance.
    If you are good in Math and Physics then you should consider engineering because very few people are naturally good at maths and physics. Even though you might feel like you are good at writing and presenting and start thinking about law but in the long run you might like. This is because there is a lot of hard work involved and some cases can stretch for years. So engineering could be great choice since you can present your ideas and are good in maths and physics. Good Luck!

    Career choice-Law vs Engineering?

    Thanks for the A2A. I don't think it is possible to have exactly same amount of interest in two distinct fields, so you should think more about it. There are classroom lectures of almost every field available on YouTube, you can check out some lectures and see which ones you find more interesting. Consult with senior engineers and lawyers if possible and ask for their experiences.

    If despite doing all these, you feel you have identical interest in both, then I'd say go for law. Given that you got admission in top institutes of both fields, I would assume that you are an intelligent person. So you would perform well in either as long as you keep working hard. I would suggest law because while in engineering you can make a lot of money and work for great organisations, if you choose a career in law, you will not only make money and work in great organisations, you will also command power and might even, at some time, work for the nation in a very high capacity. A majority of people who end up becoming MPs and Ministers have a law background. If this is something you might aspire for in the future, law is the way to go.

    Engineering = usual choice these days, set pattern, good money.
    Law = good money, power, but a path less taken as compared to engineering.

    All the best.

    I cannot offer advice from an Indian perspective, but I CAN from a USA perspective.
    Law will give you a lot of opportunities in the USA, but there are many lawyers who graduate from law school and take jobs in other fields that aren't as lucrative as what you'd expect given what you see on TV.... many have crushing debt and have to work tons of hours in billable associate positions before they reach the high pay positions (if they do at all). Law school in the USA is more back-end selective - where people can get in, but there is fierce competition in the workplace.

    Somethign like Engineering - while there may not be quite as much top end financial opportunity, will leave you better able to find jobs that will give you a solid salary, quality of life, etc.... and there are opportunities in this industry that will give you big paychecks....

    I guess the real question is where does your interest lie, and what is your risk tolerance...

    If you're ok with giving the next 10 years your life to the grind to try to forge a name and business for yourself, feel free to go with Law.
    If you want to be financially stable and enjoy life along the way, go Engineering.

    All things Aside

    Leaving all things aside Go for the Thing That your heart says that you are good at. In That career in which your mind feels satisfaction. No Career is Big or small every Career has its pros and cons the thing a person should keep in mind is that he must think of his interests. That is All what i would like to say next is You Call.

    When we talk about the preparations of the LSAT then you might be calculating the pros and cons coaching classes. If you are a brilliant student and can self-motivate yourself then you can utilize free online resources for the preparations such as free LSAT Sample Questions and eBooks etc.
