    Post UP Graduate School

    Anyone from graduate school here in UP?

    How are you coping so far?

    Full-time or part-time?

    How do you manage your time if your working, plus the g-miks?

    Hi, ako tapos na two years ago pa Share ko na lang pinagdaanan ko and how I coped with it.

    I finished my Masters' in Technology Management. It was a very demanding course, which means everything in my life went on suspended animation in order to attend to it. In my first year, pinagsabay ko ang trabaho at pag-aaral and it was difficult to say the least. Good thing in my 2nd year pinayagan ako ng boss kong mag-study leave ng isang taon kaya nakapag-full time ako. Akala ko mas madadalian ako pag pahinga sa trabaho, yun pala mas mapapasubo ka sa pag-aaral lalo na't nalaman ng mga kaklase mong naka-leave ka. Cardinal rule: if you're on full-time study leave, don't breathe a word to anybody, including your professors.

    The most important thing in grad school is teamwork and team harmony. Teamwork and harmony make the unending pile-up of course requirements more bearable as the semester progresses. Suwerte ako't nakatagpo ako ng mga ka-grupo na magagaling at masisipag at baliw. May isang SVP ng SSS, isa nama'y head ng collections ng Citibank, isa'y MIS manager ng Republic Chemicals, isa'y magna cum laude grad ng UP CBA. Ang isa pa nga'y entrepreneurial genius na marami nang naipundar na negosyo by the time he's 30. Tingin ko nga saling-pusa lang ako, hehehe!

    Efficient ang distribution namin ng trabaho na kailangan dahil iba't-iba linya namin. Typical semestral output (nine units) namin: eight group papers, 20 individual case analyses, six exams (midterm and finals), eight individual papers, and a group quality assessment report. Whew! Napansin kong yung mga walang masyadong kaibigan o maayos na kagrupo'y ang mga unang tumiklop sa grad school sa UP. Another thing: Hell Week at the graduate level offers you a lasting glimpse of Purgatory, so you better finish what you're doing ASAP!

    Of course, when you work and study hard, you're entitled to play hard too! During my grad school years, lahat na atang pwedeng pag-gimikan e nilusob namin mula Libis hanggang Katipunan hanggang Timog hanggang Jupiter hanggang Malate hanggang Alabang hanggang Tagaytay! Ang saya talaga namin nun at ang daming nabuong relasyon sa grad school. Ka-grupo ko nga e nabuntis at nanganak pa e!

    That's my story, people, how about the others?

    Hello!!

    Im just wondering how difficult / easy it is to enter UP GRAD?
    Im planning to take my Masters there (MA-IS), and I dont know a single soul who is taking his/her masters at UP.. so Im pretty much clueless. Is there a test of some sort? An interview perhaps?

    How tight or lax are they when it comes to admissions? Im just a bit worried..

    Anyone out there..

    hello! i am currently enrolled at up, and in my case, feeling ko madaling makapasok. i finished my undergrad from another university and i never expected na tatanggapin ako dito. pano ba naman, di ganoon ka-ganda ang grades ko noong undergrad ako....to think na may bagsak akong 3 major subject. pero wag ka, madali ngang makapasok, pero mahirap mag-stay.

    paano mag-apply?

    mag-inquire kayo sa graduate offices ng respective colleges na gusto niyong pasukan. in my case, pag ok na application mo, may placement exam. pag ok na yun, may interview pa (panel ha, consisting mainly of senior faculty members). you have to maintain a GWA of 2.0. kung hindi, tanggal ka sa program

    What would you suggest? I just graduated and I'm weighing my options of whether enrolling in a graduate school immediately or at least, having a working experience first. Which is better?

    depende sa kukunin mo. some courses, like MBA, requires applicants to have worked for at least 2 years. in my case, nag-apply agad ako after i graduated from college (i just graduated last june )
