^Oh sorry, I thought you were asking who told me about what I knew about FEU girls. My bad.
Yikes, I have a good friend from FEU who is an outstanding student over there (although graduate na siya).
Diba we have this stereotyping among universities like mga taga Ateneo ay mayayabang, UP mga aktibista, DLSU mga elitista, etc. According to my friend, ang stereotype daw sa kanila (among the univs in the belt) ay social climbers. Grabe lang
but really, stereotypes are there because to a certain extent, there is truth in it, pero hindi siya dapat ginegenealize to the whole population... like, marami rin namang matatalino sa DLSU ah...
naku, ayoko na lang magsalita... public forum... baka may sumilip at magreact... ayoko ng away...
Hindi lang din naman to nangyayari sa mga eskwelahan, may stereotyping din naman sa bawat rehiyon, relihiyon, bansa, kulay, style ng buhok, height, binabasa, grupo ng kaibigan, maging sa mga kamag-anak at kapitbahay. Kapag anak ka ni [insert name], ganyan ang ugali mo, kapag nakatira ka sa [insert place], ganyan ang ugali mo, etc.
I don't care if people are talking about me. I affect their lives, they don't affect mine.
^Of course, which is why this topic is specifically on the generalization that Ateneans are snobs and not on every single stereotype in the world.
We probably shouldn't take these stereotypes seriously & think on a broader scale. We all know that our parents bought us a good education-- not the best in the world, but still a solid one. After you've gone & done grad school and a postdoc, been numbed by THAT cost & repeatedly discoursed on what "Ateneo" meant, any snobby veneer will be lost anyway.
Reason why I did not enroll here was that during my ACET, students from this university would look at me from head to toe.
^Yun din sasabihin ko eh! Hahaha And ACET happens on the weekend, you were with your fellow ACET takers and not Ateneo students. XD
Ateneans are generally snobbish. As early as prep, students are made to believe that they are in the best school in the country, therefore they have to do their best to get good grades. Some grade school outings bring the young ateneans to different depressed areas where they soon realize how lucky and superior their lives are compared to a large portion of their countrymen. Some of these ateneans grow with a superiority complex and go the "snobbish" route. Some don't.
(im talking about ateneans who actually spent their formative years in ateneo grade school and high school, not the ones who just transferred to ateneo in college)
One of my nephews had to go to IS for GS because he arrived too late for regular enrollment at the beginning of his academic career. Believe me, he got pulled out after a few years when finally we gave him a good listen. His Dad, my brother, is a 3rd generation Blue blood too.
You can say, "Man for others" unti you grow fins, but if its not reinforced by home values, then bad luck! Families have the last say with grade school kids.
I know you said that only some people go into this snobbish route and some don't and that's true, but not only for Ateneans! Lahat ng eskwelahan may ganyan. I just wanted to clarify your lack of information about our formation years. /endrant
