USTET-Letran Qualified Applicants

Hi everyone.

The UST Entrance Test results were released last week. Some applicants whose scores did not make the cut-off are instead being asked to enroll in Letran.

My question is, can these applicants enroll in any course they want or is there a specific list of courses that they can choose from?

Thank you.

    You're qualified to enroll in Letran.

    As for UST, you'd have to wait till March 1 to find out which courses are available for you to choose from, that is, if there are still remaining slots.

    I was surprised with this development as well.

    Parang College of St. Benilde is to DLSU, what Letran is to UST.
  • Nakakahiya grabe. Malinaw na dugong Tomasino pa rin sila. Ultimo kalendaryo sa opisina nila sa Letran eh UST.

    parang ang pangit ng ganito, dadami nga yung students sa Letran pero parang lumalabas naman na bagsakan tayo ng UST. parang CSB to DLSU.
  • although vague it may actually seen?! UST accepts only 30% of its overall applicants.. our COLEGIO is having a hard time in luring possible students; sa tindi ng competition from other schools, NCR pa lang yan!! hindi ko masisi ang mga dominikano kung ganito ang gusto nilang gawin?!

    the irony of it is that; what we thought could be miserable; is actually helping us...:rolleyes:
  • Nakakahiya grabe. Malinaw na dugong Tomasino pa rin sila. Ultimo kalendaryo sa opisina nila sa Letran eh UST.

    sa tingin ko ganito lang yan.

    Parang referred lang sila sa letran. kasi sister school, dominicans.
    parang option lang yun. business yan eh.

    parang sa IBS (IBM business Service), bagsak ka sa interview. pwede ka mag-apply sa daksh, na sister company nila.

    both are good companies.not necessarily panget sa ibm daksh.


    mas pangit naman kung sabihin, mag up, ue o mag la salle na lang sila. competition ng ust yun eh.

    ang pinaka logical lang sabihin, sa letran pwede rin, kung gusto niyo.

    parang sa market. may suki ka, tapos wala na yung gusto mong bilhin, ire-refer ka nila dun sa kakilala nila na malapit sa kanila.

    di talaga maalis yung connection. maliban na lang kung mabili ng private company yung letran at mawala na sa mga dominicans.
  • I agree with knight of Letran. To clear things up If you pass the UST exams you are qualified for both UST and Letran but not passing the UST exam as what ive heared is that you are referred to Letran to take an exam and to try your luck if you can pass. So not necessarily bagsakan ang Letran we are just being referred so that we could possibly have enough population in response to Letran's aim of having the university status.
  • I believe appllicants who are referred to Letran are those whose scores met the UST minimum cut-off score and are therefore classified as being under "Academic Placement."

    This means, according to the UST website that: Academic Placement. Applicant did not meet the required cut-off scores of the programs of his/her choice. However, his/her scores meets the minimum cut-off scores set by the University. Thus, he/she may be considered in other programs that still have available slots.

    That being said, applicants who are classified under Academic Placement still have no certainty as to whether they will be accepted into UST because they can only be admitted if a program still has remaining slots.

    That is why they are given the option to consider Letran.
  • I have a batchmate from UST pay high school. He was not admitted at the UST college of fine arts ( CAFA), but he was admitted at the UP college of fine arts.

    so it does not mean that UP is a bad school, even though it was his second choice.

    nagkakatalo lang yan sa probationary status.

    ex. sa UST, 12 units failed = proby, then 15 units = debarred

    sa Letran - 18 units failed = proby, 21 units failed = debarred

    sa UP = if failed ka sa isang college (College of Engineering) , pwede ka pa magtransfer sa college na mas mababa ( like library science, non quota).

    Ito pa, i have a friend, He want to study at Letran, but was not admitted. He just went to AMA.
  • well, that sux..

    di kaya masyadong pathetic na ang ganitong strategy just to acquire students?

    though referrals good, ang labas naman e parang tapunan tayo.. and they are glad about it..

    ang mahalaga kasi yung loyalty sa school.. kaya ka mag-aaral dun e dahil sa gusto mo, hindi dahil stepping stone mo sya to get to other schools.. di mo pwede pilitin maging dugong arriba ang isang frustrated thomasian

    instead of getting more students through such 'shameful' method, why wont letran make means to promote the institution, like marketing or campus exposure? ang dami nating CA and marketing students na pwede tumulong sa ganitong campaign, yet instead of making a better grounds for the Colegio, they tend to make name for themselves lang..

    no offense meant to those na agree sa ganito, pero ang ganitong strategy e di mababago ang frustration nang mga USTET takers na ipursue ang pag-aaral sa UST or iba pang distinguished academic institutions.

    Nakausap ko ang isang administrator regarding this issue. It is misunderstood in this thread.

    Ang sinabi ng admin sa akin ay irerefer ng UST sa Letran ang mga students na pumasa sa USTET pero hindi na kayang i-accomodate ng UST because of population. Pwede ring dahil hindi pumasok sa preferred course. Hindi naman irerefer ng UST ang mga students na bumagsak. They will still refer those who will pass USTET.

    Isa ito sa mga strategy nila para ma-monopolized ng UST at Letran ang mga deserving students pero hindi na kayang i-accomodate ng isang school. Besides, those who are being referred to Letran still need to take up and pass Letran's Colegio Admission Test (CAT). They are just being referred to Letran because UST considers them academically qualified by reaching the required cut-off score.

    Isa pa sa mga plano ng mga Dominikano ay ang pagkakaroon ng exchange programs ng mga propesor ng dalawang institusyon para mas maiangat at mapagtibay ang research at academic standings nila.

    I see nothing wrong about it.

    Let's still study and observe their moves para makita natin ang tunay nilang motibo. Mahirap rin namang magtiwala agad.

    Letran is Letran naman. We don't need UST, but let's still be open to growth.

    Arriba Letranista!

    Yup, but you still need to take and pass the Letran's CAT (Colegio Admission Test).

    You are right. They still need to take up and pass Letran's CAT (Colegio Admission Test) in order for them to enter the Colegio.

    UST and Letran still conduct separate entrance exams. The Dominicans just know how to monopolize and take hold of those students who are still qualified.

    Kumbaga, nirerefer nila yung mga students to try their luck in Letran's CAT. Pero pag bagsak sa CAT eh di bye na din.

    Iba naman ang scenario ng CSB. Kapag bagsak ka ng DLSU, you can go to CSB that easy.

    Yup. Those who got Acad Placement are the once being referred to take up Letran's Colegio Admission Test. They still need to pass it before entering Letran. May sariling Admission exam ang Letran.

    I doubt it. Kapag nagstay ka na sa Letran...mamahalin mo na rin ito. hehehe. Lahat naman tayo nagtake ng different entrance exams. Hindi naman lahat makukuha mo so may alternative palagi.
  • Letran is Letran naman. We don't need UST.

    Well it's not like UST will cease to exist without Letran. UST never had a problem attracting students in the first place.

    Anyway, USTET applicants who are considered Letran Qualified no longer need to take Letran's admissions test. The UST website says:

    Letran College Invitation / Letran Qualified
    Applicant has scores that qualify him/her to enroll in Colegio de San Juan de Letran, a sister school of UST, also founded and run by Dominican Fathers.

    It says qualified to enroll. So it means there's no more need for an admissions test.
