Am I the only student of Palawan State University here in pex?
baka ehehehe. bakit ka pala kumuha ng petroleum engineering at hinde na lang chem eng? may mga prof ka ba diyan na nag work sa refinery, petrochem or any oil and gas industry?
dyan lang may petroleum engineering right? ok ba *** program niyo dyan? im planning to shift and transfer school.
Uh, professors wala, pero un unang batch (Petroleum Engineering in PSU started only 1995) na graduates na nag-talk sa seminar namin last semester, lahat nasa oil industry (in Singapore, Qatar and Saudi ata). Ikaw, sa oil company ka na diba? Chem Engr ng Mapua?
From what school ka? Uh, as of this second semester, I have two more classmates from Mapua who just transferred here in Palawan to pursue Petroleum Engineering, too. I've met few more Mapuans and me thinks it's about time to put up an organization "ex-Cardinals - PSU Chapter"
The successful examinees who garnered the ten (10) highest places in the Secondary Level are the following:
1 Vivian Dalida David, Ateneo De Manila University-Q.C - 91.20%
2 May Ann Garo Santiago, UP-Diliman - 90.80%
3 Davy Manglicmot Gonzales, Palawan State University-Brooks Point- 90.40%
4 Angelica Lopez Villafuerte, ADMU-QC - 90.20%

Congratulations to all the passers and board topnotchers, especially to that of Palawan State University!
whats petroleum engineering?
That 8th placer used to be my practice teacher in Math. Cool!
I got admitted to Petroleum Engineering this year. Didn't pursue, though. A lot from my batch (LHS09) are taking up PetEng, too. I miss PSU. Naks.
You must see the bulletin board come January. Entrance test results eh. Last year, we only had one passer for Ateneo, while ten for UP.
How did this year's University Day turn out?
So, you're one of those 10 who passed?
by the way, what's UP Palawenos? I Heard PSU is Palawan's UP, something like that. Care to expound? UP Open University is housed in PSU's main building so I suppose, that's what they mean?
University Day? I did not participate in any of the activities, so I was not able to watch any of those.
Yeah, I think it's Hope. I hope LHS will get back to where it has been before.
Yep, I'm one of the 10. Haha.
UP Palawenos is a UP Diliman-based org for, of course, Palawenos. And yes, PSU is one of the testing centers of UP Open U. Students enrolled in UPOU can take their exams at PSU.
I can barely remember anything about last year's University Day. Well, you should try participating in the Foundation Week (?) instead. Last year, there was a ferris wheel. Yun eh. Haha.
I miss PSU-City Hall-Bayan. Hahaha

kaya siguro ganun, kasi less that 100 pa lang ata ang graduate ng PSU Petroleum Engineering program. Most of these graduates go abroad, kaya siguro wala ka pa nameet na Petroleum Engineer.
The Foundation Week and University Day? I only remember Intramurals. do they differ? hehe..
I am enjoying the multi cabs here in Palawan. They're cute. While you miss Palawan, me on the other hand, misses Manila. I plan to go back there this coming Christmas break. I miss KFC, McDonalds and Wendy's! haha.. We find Itoy's a nice alternative to that of Manila's coffee shops, too.
^ Foundation Week is during the first week of March. It's the celebration for the foundation (of course) of the University as Palawan Teacher's College way back then in 1972. This is when elementary and high school students are forced to dance to please the President. Hahahaha! Eto na naman ako. University Day, on the other hand, marks the conversion of Palawan State College into a university. I think this year's the 13th or 14th. Not sure.
I can't help but to miss KFC and McDonald's whenever I get back home, too. Jollibee at Chowking lang kasi di ba?lol Itoy's is a good one, but not the Starbucks-type. I have frequented it just last sembreak. Don't know why. Haha.
Whoa, talaga you think it's hope na leading now?
back some years ago, it was really neck and neck between Hope, Science High and PSU-LHS.
Parang every competition ata nagpapalit palit lang ng winner.
I always watch out for Postre of Science High back then. Bobit and Angel for PSU-LHS. great competitors.
I would probably rank my year as this. (number of competions won)
1. Science High
but come NCAE time, we came on top of Palawan. haha, argh,
*High School days.
Most of the good ones I know of PSU-LHS section 'A' batch is in UP-Las Banos, UP-D and I think angel was the only one in UP-m. The thing lang kasi sa PSU-LHS is that they expanded their section to 3 which I think was for monetary purposes lang, hence having extremes of really good ones, section A and the so-so ones, section C.
In our batch, I think only 13 passed the UPCAT.
*originally it was 12 but 1 got through by a reconsideration (now in UP manila), 13 I think is a pretty high percentage considering that our batch is only 43 and about 6 or 7 did not even took it.
Only 4 pursued UP, UP is not really commercialized enough in our school. I think some would only take it for the bragging rights of passing the UPCAT, the glitz and glamor of it all.

Yeah, it's still Jollibee, Chowking and Shakey's. I have tried almost all the restaurants in Puerto Princesa (Ka Lui's, Kinabuchs, Macoy's and etc), but I still miss KFC, McDonald's and Wendy's! haha.. I find Itoy's a good alternative to expensive coffee shops there in Manila. It's where me and my Mapuan friends go whenever we feel like we want to be in a Manila-ish place.
I used to have a dorm mate in Manila (he's from Palawan National High School, batch 2008) and he's doing really good in his academic life in Mapua. He's even better than his friend (from PSU LHS, also batch 2008 in Mapua) when it comes to schooling. I don't mean to judge people by mental capabilities but it's just my observation as this PNS graduate is able to achieve 1.++ grades in his Math subjects. That's something unusual in my previous school, I daresay. He's really awesome.

Another field I find Hope to be excelling ahead of LHS is sports. AFAIK, consistent ang training ng varsity nila. Eh sa PSU-LHS kasi, iilan lang talaga ang players, tapos karamihan pinulot lang just for the sake of completing the team or may mga nag-volunteer kahit di naman talaga player, just to get exempted from PE and from classes a few days before the City Meet.
Say, 13 out of 43 gives your batch a relatively high percentage of 30%. On the other hand, my batch of 121 with only 12 UPCAT passers gives us a rate of 9%, which is alarming because almost everyone took the entrance exam. Heck, am I bashing my school much? Hahaha.
If I were to rank my year, it'd be:
I based it also on the number of competitions won like UP Pautakan, Geo Bee, Division/Regional/National Schools Press Conference, Rotary Club's Voice of the Youth, PALECO Quiz Bee, NCAE, etc.
We had two students who got percentile ranks of 99+ in NCAE '09, and almost everyone got percentile ranks not lower than 90.
BTW, in this year's PSU entrance test, 7 out of the top 10 came from PSU-LHS. Ang nakakagulat pa dito ay 'yung mga average lang ang performance sa academics ang karamihan, at nagkatabi-tabi lang noong nag-take.
