talaga? I don't believe that. Do you think those students from science hs especially Pisay na required ang graduates na science-related course ang kunin sa college would even trust/believe that stupid ranking? Ano sapalagay mo/niyo, magpiPhilo sila sa ADMU or magaAccountancy sa DLSU dahil these 2 universities are on that list? I'm not saying that these 2 schools are mediocre in science undergrad courses, what I'm just trying to imply is that no ranking could ever remove the mentality that UP will always be the premier university of our country no matter what. If ever man na madaig(consistently) nga ang UP, ano sapalagay mo/niyo ang mangyayari? like for example, ADMU na ang 1st, DLSU 2nd, at 3rd ang UP, dba it would be better if ADMU will be the/a national university na dahil sila na ang on top? Parang magiging ganito, yung ADMU magiging the Ateneo of the Philippines tapos yung UP magiging University de Ateneo na? That sounds absurd.
btw, im an incoming 4th yr student and a prospective UPCAT taker this year. I'm just trying to share my opinions, medyo nahurt at nagambala lang kasi ako like many others na rin siguro(na nakakaalam nito) lalo na yung mahihirap and kagaya kong Promdi na malaman na ang dream school namin ay wala (na) sa listahang ito.
*No offense to the Ateneans and also to the La Sallians. At least somehow, you made yourselves proud by being part of those top universities this time (only) .WTF are you smoking?!I know. I tried googling "what is the best university in the Philippines?" and guess what the result is. Its still UPD that dominates the search results. What can you say now? It can't be denied that these schools are indeed great on their own specialties. Its just, UP, as the premier and national university of our country is in general, the best, will always be the best no matter what. I suggest that these "top" universities should form an elite consortium just like the Ivy League so that its not just UP or ADMU that can make the RP rose through the ranks... If we have this Ivy League of our own, I think students from these universities will soon fully respect each other just like equals. That is what the the white triangle in our flag stands for, right?
