HELP! UPLB or DLSU?

guys please help me, i can't decide.

ok here's the story. i didn't pass the UPCAT and i wasn't able to take the entrance exams in DLSU. i'll be studying first in Centro Escolar University (makati branch) and i'm planning to transfer after 1sem or 1year. i'm choosing between these two universities.

i cried a lot during my enrollment in CEU :bashful: because i really wanted to study in dlsu. but my aunt said, if i would transfer, i should choose uplb because it's academically better than la salle. no offense; she's a up graduate. anyway, i want to enjoy my college life, hindi kasi ako masydong masaya nung high school... and i think... well para sakin, parang masaya ang buhay sa la salle... :confused:

please help me naman po... my course by the way is MassCom and if ever i got the chance and if ever i decided to study in uplb i would shift to CommArts. i'm so confused!!! :mecry:

  • syempre up grad, sasabihin niya mas maganda UPLB. ang tanong? saan ba siyang UP campus nanggaling? kung gusto mo mag UP, its either DILIMAN or MANILA. yung lang ang magandang UP campus. ahahaah. natawa ako sa aunt mo ha. sa class ko, lahat nakapasa sa UPLB, pero they chose La Salle over UPLB. kasi naman, nagUP ka pa kung UPLB lang. sayang! madali kaya makapasok sa UPLB, and ang baba ng campus UPG cut-off... di ko alam bakit di ka natanggap.. sori.

    kung commarts ka, malamang dlsu ka dapat pumunta. UPLB is an agriculture school. anu yan, balak mo bang mag-araro ng bukid and magdala ng kalabaw?

    ahaahha. wrong reasoning ang aunt mo. sana naman may logic sinabi niya. this is the reason why napapalibutan na ng kaguluhan ang ating bansa dahil sa mga UP grads na mali-mali ang pagpapatakbo sa ating bansa. and for UPLB grads, wala pang nakapagpaimpress sa akin. UPD or UPM meron na. sila pa lang.
  • depende rin kasi yan sa course.
  • nah. As said , its just either UP diliman or UP manila. Only the two schools deserve to carry the full 100% UP pride

    Pag commarts maganda sa la salle or better yet sa ateneo! Suggest ko talaga magtransfer out ka after a year or so. Im from la salle and i can tell that ateneo has a better com arts curriculum
  • hahaha..natatawa naman ako sainyo... kung makapgcomment kayo sa UP(LB specifically,,,) parang di sya UP ah.

    matanong nga,, UPCAT passer ka ba? ha anna?

    btw, proud fighting maroon po ako.(from UPD)

    'nag-UP ka pa kung UPLB lang' is something I will expect to hear from a no-brainer.

    you do not know what're the reasons behind the lower UPG cut-off of UPLB so I guess, you do not have the right to speak ill of it.
    Besides, di lang ang UPLB ang naglower ng cut-off, even the others.

    Being an agricultural school is something the whole UPLB community is so proud of. Do you really know what agriculture is? kasi, you, saying plainly that agriculture is about pag-aararo ng bukid and pagdadala ng kalabaw is funny. Mas wala kang logic. It is a four-year course tas yon lang sa tingin mo ang matututunan mo? Scientific agriculture to pare.

    kung communication courses ang kukunin mo, better yet wag sa UPLB kasi kawawa ka. Dito sa diliman nalang. majority kasi ng mga courses sa UPLB, they involve HARD Sciences. yan ang field of specialization ng LB, HARD sciences. kaya may discrimination kung pa-petik petik ka lang.

    if you think UP is between UPM and UPD only, then you are not thinking.
    iisa lang ang UPCAT, kahit nasa UP visayas o Mindanao ka pa, at yan ang pinagkaparepareho ng mga authentic, genuine, at true Maroons, ang pagiging passer.
  • I know some people who passed Ateneo but went to UPLB.
    'nag-UP ka pa kung UPLB lang' >>ganyan din dati akala ko but you'll feel different if you're actually from UP.

    Anyway, on topic, considering the course, DLSU na lang. Pero it'll all depends on your lifestyle. Ako mas pipiliin ko UPLB eh.
  • What a hasty generalization. Marami akong kakilala na taga-UPLB at kabilang sila sa mga magagaling na taong kakilala ko.

    Anyway, for the question of the thread starter, you need to obtain first high grades from CEU. Sa DLSU, dapat wala kang bagsak at at least 85% ang over-all average mo from your previous school. Ganyan din sa UP (kahit anong unit pa). Both schools have a tough admission system kahit sa transferee. Maganda ang comm arts ng UPLB, maganda rin ang mass comm ng DLSU. Try applying to both universities tapos kapag may decisions na, dun ka nalang magdecide ulit kung san ka.
  • tama sabi nila. Each school has its own field of speciality and UPLB focuses on hard science. Probably even better in some courses than UPD.

    Anyway galingan mo sobra sa CEU kasi kuripot magaccept ng transferees ang DLSU and expect to start again from square 1 when you enter DLSU. Alam mo naman la salle kurakot di sila masyado nagccredit ng subject lalo na majors from other universities para mapaenroll ka ulit.
  • based on experience lang:

    my bro planned to transfer to UST.. sa CEU makati din sya ngayon..

    the problem is that IF you really are planning to transfer, kelangan prepared ka sa mga requirements..

    academic institutions have the tendency to delay your plans. kaya ihanda mo na dapat ang Form-137 mo from your HS dahil yan ang madalas hanapin. Then you must be able to apply for transfer a week or two bago matapos ang school year para makapagtanong ka na rin sa registrar ng tamang procedures. and make sure na kumpleto ka sa requirements sa CEU (like birth certificate, etc..) bago ka mag-apply for transfer

    UPLB has the edge on agricultural and horticultural studies. magaling din naman kahit paano ang campus na yun sa Social sciences.

    but if your planning to pursue CommArts, i would recommend schools at the metro, like DLSU or UP-Diliman. marami din schools sa metro manila na magagaling ang CommArts, like CSB, Letran, UST, or PLM.


    academically wise, mahusay nga ang UPLB, pero when it comes to surviving sa field after you finished your degree sa CommArts, for instance, mas pipiliin mo ang DLSU or UP-D and other colleges or universities sa metro manila area.

    my two cents worth;)
  • actually, sasabihin ko sayo na kahit saan up campus, basta UP. tapos ang usapan. =) i'm graduated from uplb but i would say na tama si dreidrei na hard sciences ang focus ng elbi so kung communication ang course mo, better mag diliman ka.

    but if you decide to study in elbi, di ka pa rin madedehado. acedemically competitive, environment's good, para lang isang malaking community. dapat diliman ako, pumasa naman ako sa course na in-apply-an ko. but unfortunately, ayaw ng parents ko na sa manila ako mag-aral so they opted to send me to elbi. and yes, i had a blast. wala akong pinagsisisihan sa pag-aaral ko dun. dito ko sa elbi na-meet ang mga importanteng tao sa buhay ko ngayon. may hirap, sarap, saya, lungkot pero lahat yun, worth the experience.

    OBVIOUS BA?! I passed UP-Diliman, Political Science. I chose La Salle for my undergrad kasi accounting yung course na pinili ko. Right now, I'm attending UP-Law! Kung ayaw mo maniwala sa akin, magkita tayo sa Malcolm Hall.

    hahaha! check mo nga cut-off ng UPLB! sa tingin mo mataas yung cut-off nila? nagpapatawa ka ba?:rotflmao:

    comment lang po sa mga comments ng users

    di po ako taga UPLB, pero aminado ako na maganda ang campus nila kung pagbabasehan mo ung overall. its peaceful there. u can relax while you study. the air there is always fresh. and dun pinakamasarap ung choco milk na binebenta nila. aminado din naman ako na madali sa UPLB compared sa UPD or UPM. kaya ganun un kasi di sila one of the satellite universities na maraming course na pagpipilian. un lang. hehe

    @OP/TS: La Salle ka na. i mean...if La Salle ang gusto mo why not? your aunt must be really loyal to UP. don't take the word of your aunt for it. you are studying for yourself, not for your parents or anyone else. this is your future you're building. might as well make the most of it.
  • please lang ha...wag mo nilaLANG ang UPLB. Di porque't Political Science ang course mo minamaliit mo ang other campus ng UP.
    Hello??D namn sa cut-off nagkakatalo un eh..so ano kung mababa ung cut-off. queber.
    wala nmng nag sabi na pagmababa ang cut off sayang ang pagpasok mo sa naturang campus eh.
    Di mo kasi naexperince pumasok ng LB.heheheh.
    baka kainin ka ng mga puno dun at gamitan ng chemical ng mga agri students.hahahah.

    hahahah! sabihin mo 'to sa mga Law profs ko. everytime na mababa ang mga exam results ng class, palagi nila sinasabi sa class na "lumipat na lang yung mga bumabagsak sa UPLB. baka may future pa kayo sa FORESTRY!!!" ahahhaa. :rotflmao: tapos may side comment pa "Magbukid na lang kayo, baka duon future niyo!" :rotflmao:
  • masakit talaga ang ka22hanan. walang na tayong magagawa... ganun talaga...

    hay UP or DLSU parehas lang sa dulo basta makagraduate ka dyan mataas credentials mo sa mga companies... gudluck newei MASSCOM? sa amin(DLSU) COMMARTS lam ko eh andun mga artista at artistahin hehehe
  • They are both great schools for undergrad, but they offer a different undergrad experience.

    DLSU is private, exclusive, has an "affluent" ambience in a literal sense and probably has a laxer academic approach. UPLB, on the other hand, is open and liberal, but it's education is more demanding and probably twice as more cutthroat as DLSU's.

    I would go for DLSU in heartbeat because I like its "private-like" environment than UPLB's open environment.

    If you're confronted with the same problem, i'd say choose the school based on fit. You might like one and hate the other.
  • para sabihin ko dun sa mga nagmamaliit sa uplb,! napakalaki po ng contribution ng uplb sa status na tinatamasa ng buong UP System, at syempre ng buong PILIPINAS!
    para dun sa author, kung medyo marami ka pang time at pera try mo sa dalawang campus (kung makakapasok ka sa LB) and see the difference! hahaha...
  • guys thanks for your opinions, great help:) i'm working on my grades now. elbi is a great place though ;)
  • Cguro mag UP-D ka nalang... para di na ka mangamote sa Math11 sa UPLB.

    No joke, your Math11 course is the same course where other Sciences/Math majors jump start.

    Madali daw kasi Math ng Diliman. At sana alam ni anna_addict ang rationale behind UP cut-offs. Di ba kung lawyer ka (nga ba), bago ka mangatwiran, isipin mo muna ang background ng statements mo.

    Hehe
