I'm planning to take up a Business course, Marketing to be specific, and I'm deciding between two schools: San Beda College or University of Asia and the Pacific.
Based on my research, UA&P is a good school, not as good as the big 3, but good.. especially when it comes to business courses. I have no problems with the tuition, we can afford it, but my concerns are: 1.0 Is it worth it? The expensive tuition fee.. will it really give me better opportunities than other less expensive schools? 2.) the mortality rate. I'm not really intellectually inclined, so I'm worried that I may pass the entrance exam, but not pass the cut off at the end of the year (or worse, on the 2nd or 3rd year) and all of the money and time spent will go down the drain and I have to start from scratch all over again. Is their mortality rate really that bad?
My first choice is actually San Beda College. I think it's a pretty great school (my opinion) and it isn't as hard, doesn't give as much pressure, and relatively cheaper than UA&P. What I'm worried about is its reputation to other people, to other companies and the corporate world. I think this is the most bashed school, I don't know why. I've read on many sites that San Beda is now a diploma mill. So I don't know if that'll affect my chances in the corporate world.
What do you think? What would be a better choice?
Any insights about the said schools (education, campus, community, environment-wise?)
PS: these are my only choices. thanks.
