I think ranking of schools accg to all the courses that have a board exam does not really tell the capacity of its students/graduates.... you see. schools do have its center of excellence program. And having to produce licensed professionals cannot exactly mean that the school as a whole is better.

say for instance.

yung mga graduates ng engineering courses from up diliman. masasabi mong magaling talaga. pero come to think of it... ilan nga ba sila sa batch nila? madami diba? now compare it to those those in the other courses na walang board? i think hindi na take into account ang mga yon. especially, ang mga courses na hindi pa naeenhance ang curriculum. hindi kasama ang mga yon sa pagbibilang ng best schools (accdng to this list above)

ateneo and ust came closely behind. ok , i'd say fair enough.

dlsu came in 17th place. engr and acctncy lng ang courses na considered in the list. pero pano ang courses on arts and sciences? and on business? in restrospect, you would see that those are the courses that dlsu which are best known for. business courses that do graduate from elite schools like dlsu and admu are now the big bosses of major companies these days. right? hindi ba dapat din iconsider yun? (at mostly from my observation ang mga UP grads ang employees nila. hehehe) Also Mapua, saan sya papasok in the scene knowing a lot of my friends i know are really good engineers... yung kakilala ko na nagbabarko sabi nila mas prefer daw nila mga taga mapua kesa UP ha...

The bottom line is , everyone can be biased depending on where they are studying or graduated but whatever school you came from, work attitude and work ethics will make you shine. and make all the things your school taught you shine even better.

My two cents worth  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Let's face it guys, schools REALLY DOES MATTER! Imagine in the real world, iba talaga ang mga galing sa mga elite schools as compared to the so called "so-so" schools. Not only does it give you an advantage in the workplace but it is also a key factor in one's self-confidence when dealing with people in various social aspects.

i think those who say otherwise are totally in denial of the real dynamics that play in society. Of course one's school should not limit a person's ability to prove his worth be, it in the workplace or in real life. But the truth lingers that society will always be critical of a person's background, it's one of life's harsh realities we all need to cope with in a changing world like ours.

I can't help bu feel pity for those people who are thinking that their schools are at par of the real elite education institutions in the country.I don't want to name drops such mediocre schools here because most of you here know which these schools are... :D :D :D :D :D

The prestige and fame of these top schools in the country cannot be quantified by money or years of existence. In restrospect, it is the actual accomplishments of students, alumni, and the school's relevance to the country's political and business sectors that make them prestigious and internationally recognized. International recognition, of course, refers to the academic community of top education institutions around the world and not by some OFWs who happen to become successful in their chosen fields.

Well having said that, there are only but three Philippine schools that can be considered prestigious and recognized by the international academic community and these are non-other than.

UP - Ateneo - De Lasalle (IN EXACT ORDER) -

Nothing follows... i hope you would agree with me.. it's hard to accept but that's reality.

 When we say top schools, we are referring to the school as an education institution and not just the students, alumni, or facilities. People, no doubt, can improve themselves as individuals, but credibility and prestige of institutions are built through time and the overall accomplishments of the people who built it.

i would stick to the top 5 schools in the philippines, di naman din sila makikila ng ganyan pag wala na silang magandang foundation e. but no offense to other schools... of course there's always room for improvement.
