SAT not required!!! But you have to pass the UPCAT (UP College Admissions Test) and your SAT is a good preparation for this.
where in the philipines do you want to study? manila, cebu, cagayan de oro? there are a lot of schools in the philippines. entrance exam varies on what school you want to enroll at. but its not that hard.
if you want the best of the best in medicine… i recommend UP Manila. Or St. Luke’s… Hmm, try to google other schools too. and research the passing rates in board/licensure exams. i don’t know if it’ll be hard for you, depends on your abilities. good luck
For medicine you can try U.P. manila or UST.
Makati Medical Center offers a nursing program, not sure if they have medicine too. FEU has a nursing/med tech program. AMA has nursing and Medical transcription. I know for a fact that AMA is not at par with the already established Universities I mentioned so it might be easier to get it. With the demand on nurses increasing, there are more schools to choose from.
-Since UP is one of the if not the BEST you will need good grades and a good exam score. We don’t have SAT’s here but its possible that they may use your score as a reference since you took high school in the states.
All entrance exams are a bit of a challenge.
Subjects are thought in english (unless its filipino subject). Your admittance to the school depends if you pass the exam. You’re education NY doesnt guarantee your pass in the philippines.
-Besides you’re english comprehension is pretty bad for a US educated filipino..
lets see “WHICH college” not WHAT college and Doctor is not a course
haahaaaaay, i’m surprised henry sy hasn’t thought of opening an SM university yet. i’m sure you’ll be the first to be admitted.
1. UP Manila for med courses. you have to take UPCAT, their entrance test. be sure to submit your application form before august 2008. many high school seniors aspire to attend UP, and most of them are achievers from public & private schools all over the country. this is a state university, you know what to expect.
2. if you wanted to attend a private university, consider De La Salle University – Health & Sciences Campus. it is not in manila but in cavite. 1 1/2 hour drive from manila. if you want to study, study. its in here.
dasmarinas is cavite’s university belt, aside from the Health & Sciences Campus,
universities like Emilio Aguinaldo College, AMA Dasmarinas, St Paul’s College, Phil Christian University, La Salle – Dasma, STI, Technological University of the Philippines, they are also opening Polytechnic University of the Philippines by next year.
if you dont want to experience manila’s pollution and traffic. consider staying at dasmarinas.
I will recommend University of the Philippines but if you want to enroll next year, you’re already too late because the UP College Admission Test was already held last August.
I’ll also recommend the University of Santo Tomas and Far Eastern University. Just check out their website to see details about their admission. SAT is not a requirement here in the Philippines.
