Bakit ang layo ng DLSU?
I was leaning towards it for my daughter next year

Maybe because of what's indicated by DLSU instructors not
doing as well as expected in the last PAFTE checkups.
That would tend to lead to underripe graduates, and lowered
performance at the board exams.

What's interesting is that La Salle U has been luring away
top UP professors for the past two decades, with much higher
wages and a short hop to tenure as a VERY strong incentive.
Maybe the ex-UP'ers get lazy once they're making more money?*

Many alumni think UP's standard of education is WAY down from
the late 90's, precisely because the teaching staff
is now so young, and turnover/migration is so rapid.
To think that UP, at maybe only 60% of its former excellence,
is still top of the heap (no one is even close) is depressing.

My fear is that Philippine education is going to the dogs.
That we're 'processing' too many diploma-holders without
encouraging real fire in both belly and brain pan.

*...or maybe La Salle routinely 'insists' on passing marks for lazy students?
Maybe money talks just so that (shoulda) flunkers walk?

No offense meant to the one who made the study but it's based on the number of average passers from the board exams.

I think it's unfair just to categorize it in that way. For example, the other schools may just be specialzing in engineering. Ateneo has no engineering department.

But I agree with the no. 1 school. The order of the rest, I have some qualms and apprehensions.

New_comer
08-31-2007, 00:02
But that's just one way to determine rankings...

How about in the following metrics:
- quality of the faculty; how many doctorates, masters, Ivy league staffers have they in their line-up?
- quality of alumni 10-20 years down the road; which school can boast to have the most corporate chairmen, presidents, board of directors, mayors, congressmen, ambassadors, senators, Chief Executives
- % number of dropouts per year, then we'll know who's the "diploma mill" out there. :supergrin:

So which university to go for a business course???

Ateneo or La Salle?

Eye Cutter
08-31-2007, 05:31
Ateneo for Business. DLSU for entrepreneurship. Sa regular DLSU ha, hindi sa CSB! hahaha!

yung nephew ko natanggap sa Diliman, BS Economics. Pero nag research kasi kapatid ko, Ateneo raw ang may mas magandang curriculum for Business courses. So they enrolled him at the Ateneo. BSME yata or something??? DLSU Alumnus yung brother ko.

they were the first batch with the standardized tuition fees. Ngayon, 20K++ na ang tuition sa peyups. sa ateneo, more than double tuition binayaran nila.

sabi ko nga, yung tuition fee ng 1 sem sa ateneo, 1 year na sa UP. Oh well... sayang lang kasi opportunity to study at UP. Biased ako, e! Product ng public school... hwehehehe! di ba fafa Allegra???

Im sure qualified scuba diver kayo. Try Apo Island which is now the Marine Lab's pet project and sole caretaker. The one SUmilon island was a controversy back in the early 80s. Been there once in 84, the outpost was abandoned . Just a waste to see a nice coral reef damaged by dynamite fishing and other illegal ways.

Sa Pisay ako natutong mag ballpen-spin, basic lang.
(Apparently it was handed down via a UP connection.)
I thought I was such hot goods at it, until my
freshman year at UP. I felt like a quad.
Can't do the reverse too well, and
the see-saw is just mind-boggling.

I certainly can't do the double spin.

DLSU is a good business school. When you can't pass DLSU, you have a choice of going to CSB (and most likely, you'll get accepted there). In the end, the tuition you pay will still go to La Salle and not to other schools.:supergrin:

I sent my Twin daughters to college there at Ateneo De Manila and U.S.T. Both went to Business courses,much different from the medical field my wife and i took.Nevertheless my 25 years old twins now work in Citi Bank and Chase Bank as Personal bankers, which my family are very proud of. Im from U.E. , my wife from F.E.U., so i think what school is irrelevant,but to value and love education will be the measure of one`s success in life. And i always believe,"Never step at anybody`s foot today, because it maybe attached to the ass that you will kiss someday".Just my two cents.--------Sweater

But it's Ramos administration whose the culprit to this skyhigh tuition fees now.

ADMU, UP are my choices for my kids. As I'm a product of Adamson, and nowadays it's NOT WHAT YOU KNOW BUT WHO YOU KNOW.

I was highly discriminated when I entered Nestle, imagine I was already reporting for work when they claimed that I falsified my documents because they did not see I am from Adamson. I was told my school belonged to the not accepted schools, but I passed all the exams and panel interview :shocked: :shocked: bugger..

I agree with you Horge, most of the good prof are getting old and the good young ones are setting their eyes to go abroad. You can't blame them pay is disproportionate with their stills, almost no opportunity and lets face it there is the matter of politics which is present in almost all of our system here in the Phil.

Dumaguete's such a nice place. I'd go there twice a week to buy sugar during the milling season in the late '90s. It's a four-drive from Bacolod via Mabinay (used to be an 8 hour drive if you took the old highway), but I didn't mind driving through the mountains. Nice scenery approaching Bais.

People there live simple lives. You ride a small Honda motorcycle with a bottle of Rum and Coke, a couple of plastic cups and ice. Hang out at the Boulevard. Eat at either D&C Chicken (the sizzling squid there is No.1), Jo's Inato or the Siliman Cafeteria.

Did I mention that ladies there are relly cool and very friendly?;)

CatsMeow
09-02-2007, 21:34
Dumaguete's really a rather rustic city, although the influx of people from outside results in people not knowing each other anymore unlike, say, ten years ago. It's infested with motorcycles, nobody wears a helmet, and the youths driving them are not even licensed, so if they hit you, they just get back up and take off, leaving you and your dented car. Apart from that, it's a great place, but does seems like a ghost town during summer, when all those Silliman students are on summer holiday.

Last time I was in Bacolod, we took the Mabinay route; the road was great up to Kabankalan, but after that, the roads become bad due to all those sugarcane trucks; they're still fixing it when we passed by. Going back, we took the road through Salvador Benedicto down to San Carlos City, great road but engine-straining when in the mountains.

Ditto on the ladies!:thumbsup: There's two Jo's Chicken Inato here in Cebu, and one in Project 8, Quezon City.

Actually, it's true, most killings in Dumaguete remain unsolved. And motorcycle-riding snatchers abound. Dumaguete natives may be peaceful, but when provoked...one snatcher was beaten to death recently in Silliman. Best to be in condition yellow at all times when walking the streets.

I spent four years in UP, but so help me, I don't know how to sing the UP anthem.

As to Apo Island, it was in the news some years ago, when a US Army Chinook helicopter went in some kilometers offshore from it. The searchers came ashore at Barangay Malatapay, Zamboanguita. Remember the front-page picture of a PAF general who had somebody piggyback him to shore so he won't get wet, while the American sergeant next to him waded ashore ala MacArthur.

If you want fresh seafood, Malatapay every Wednesday is the place to go!:thumbsup:

The mayor (now on his last term) took great umbrage when Dumaguete was characterized as "The City of Unsolved Crimes". But no improvement occurred. A great number of the victims are young Silliman students (I must be getting old, calling them that).:supergrin:

Still, Silliman University is the place to study, if only for the great academic atmosphere (plus having to walk a considerable distance between classes, never gained weight when I was studying there!), though they better pay their teachers well, or lose them to the Negros Oriental State University (NORSU)(formerly CVPC & EVSAT) just across the street. It's already happening.:shocked:

Last year there was a spate of vigilante style killing. Seem to be doing good to stop this criminals from doing their trade. I hope they keep up with them to the fullest. Again I miss the once peaceful city when growing up in the 70s and 80s.

I spent four years in UP, but so help me, I don't know how to sing the UP anthem.

As to Apo Island, it was in the news some years ago, when a US Army Chinook helicopter went in some kilometers offshore from it. The searchers came ashore at Barangay Malatapay, Zamboanguita. Remember the front-page picture of a PAF general who had somebody piggyback him to shore so he won't get wet, while the American sergeant next to him waded ashore ala MacArthur.

If you want fresh seafood, Malatapay every Wednesday is the place to go!:thumbsup:



Oh really, anyone have a pic of that? PAF General must have been in full dress uniform, timid of getting his uniform wet LOL. Babalik pa sya sa Mactan or Villamor AFB siguro.

I used to visit UP Diliman in early 1990s, stop at their minimall and student cafeteria. Adobong chicken liver menu was my favorite.

I knew we have something in common. Yup, I love her to death; she was like a little sister to me. Such bonds are easier to form in a tiny little school like ours. Cheers!!!

It was in the Philippine Star front page. I couldn't recall what he was wearing, it may have been a flight suit. It was the subject of much commentary and ridicule.:supergrin:

Ako naman doon lang sa ilalim ng puno sa tabi ng Co-op sa AS Building. Basta 5 pesos lang ang budget sa lunch, lahat lasang masarap dahil siguro sa gutom.

Well, there's UP and then there's UP. Check out the cars in the parking lot at the business school area. And that building has a pretty good cafeteria too, with sizzling this and that. THAT section of UP is certainly not cash-poor.

Actually, it's true, most killings in Dumaguete remain unsolved. And motorcycle-riding snatchers abound.

Someone from Dumaguete told me that majority of the snatchers and the hoodlums are not from Dumaguete. According to him, a lot of snatchers who were arrested in Dumaguete are from Mindanao. Dumaguete was a peaceful place when I was doing business there in the late 90's.

If you want fresh seafood, Malatapay every Wednesday is the place to go!

Yes,it is. The Wednesday market there is just awesome. We got to ate at a resort in Malatapay owned by a Dutch named Hans who had a Filipina wife from Silay named Nenita.

Fish is more cheaper in the Antulang area.

Aren't most killings in other cities in the Philippines also unsolved? Why pick on Dumaguete?

That's true. Some are even from Cebu.

In Malatapay, you only have to choose the freshly-caught fish and tell the cooks how you want them, whether it be tinola, kinilaw, or sinugba, and that's it!:thumbsup:

Well, for a small city, everybody knows everybody (until fairly recently), so if anybody gets killed, it's always someone you know. That's why, for a Dumagueteño, it's more personal than, say, in big Cebu City, where it's barely news unless it's some prominent person.

In the mid 80's in Cebu, somebody got stabbed right before my eyes, and it merited only a little news story buried in the middle pages...:shocked:
