Wew, I can no longer follow all this talk about Duke and Berkeley. May I ask how the Philippine condition relates with the issue? ^_^
I guess the spirit of this thread is why the Philippines is off the global ranking and what we can do about it.
I appreciate your attempt at following the dialogue. In a roundabout way it is relevant to the main topic of rankings. The Philippines must be less instructional and a bit more research oriented for the sake of its students across all its universities. Rankings are not set in stone nor are they hard objective facts about any particular school that is on or off the list. Though the country lacks the funds necessary to begin a slow climb onto the list, which goes beyond the top 100 universities in the world, the country can embark upon the first step which is to instill a more holistic overview of academics within its students. This holistic view includes research oriented activities at the forefront. In a typical US university, students are encouraged to think on their own by writing a substantial amount of papers, roughly 8-12 pages long on average. Such an approach allows a student a chance to see a bird's eye view of the academic process.
who cares? we all die. worry about where you're going next, this dimension, higher dimension, hell, animal womb, or death of soul.
Person 1: mas magaling ang school ko sa iyo. Person 2: ay hindi! mas magaling ang school ko kaysa sa iyo. i don't think this is the trait they are looking for for promotion into a higher dimension.
remember the story about jesus and the old woman where that woman gave 1 cent yata. The old woman never went to harvard or princeton or duke or berkeley. she never heard of lsat, mcat, gmat, ivy league o anupang entrance exam at kung anu ano pang at at yan. she was just a poor and humble woman.
Your opinion does not matter here. What matters here are the facts which have proven you wrong, and exposed you of your immaturity and lack of talent, (among other weaknesses you've exposed yourself here of)...
1. Surveys and their validity.
2. Acceptance by both Berkeley and Duke. Can it be shown that ALL admittees to both schools would always choose Berkeley?
By the way, what is the UPCAT? Is that the entrance exam given to prospective candidates for the University of the Philippines? I am an American, not a poser or fraud.
What are my weaknesses and so called lack of talent compared to an opponent who has weak critical reading and POSSIBLY weak critical thinking skills? By the way, I never "try hard". I only believe in whatever that I can do naturally. So, while you struggle with your responses(believe me, I can easily tell), I write these freewrite responses and posts in an effortless manner.
Lastly, where did you attend school in the United States? If my opinion was worthless, then do you not think that there would be no person on pinoyexchange that either responded to these posts and/or not peruse the contents of this post? I would like to see your contributions to pinoyexchange. Please show me an article or two that you have written on this entire site. I would be fascinated to read your own learned contributions to pinoyexchange.
