^ Yup I agree with her. Ang puhunan diyan ay buong college.
In order to become cum laude, all you need to do is to study hard and pray harder. For me, college is a lot more different than highschool and 10 times the difficulty. When I was in HS, I'm consistent in being on the top in our class pero hindi pa seryoso nun. Maaga pa natutulog, sa school na lang nag-aaral, hindi pressured. I enjoyed my HS years so much. I didn't get any academic honor in HS so it motivated me to become better in college. When I entered college, it became my ultimate dream to graduate cum laude. Nahirapan ako mag-adjust from HS to college. But I studied harder and did my responsibilities more. Studies became my number 1 priority. I also experienced sleeping late para lang mag-aral. Sobrang sacrifice talaga, uwian pa ako araw-araw eh malayo ang school ko sa bahay. Luckily in my 1st year, I became dean's lister. So it motivated me to always become one.
Then I reached my 3rd year. Nag-dorm ako nung 1st sem kasi hindi na kaya ng schedule ko yung pagod. All our classes start at 7am and ends up at 7pm or 6pm everyday. It was a total sacrifice. Sadly for me, I find it hard to adjust from my lifestyle at home and in dorm. Nasanay kasi ako na laging nandyan ang parents ko. So during the 2nd sem, I decided to go home everyday despite the schedule, and it was very tough on my part. Cainta, Rizal to UST is not that easy with my hectic sched and the load of school work. I still got good grades though, but not on the dean's list. And my grade fell down to 1.8 so I find it hard to maintain the 1.75 grade for cum laude.
Good thing during our internship, I got really good grades. Nakahabol ako for cum laude. Thank you Lord! I even attend novena mass atProxy-CoProxy-Connection: keep-alive
t. Judmakahabol. Good thing everything paid-off. Lahat ng hirap, pagod, puyat, walang tulog. . sobrang sulit! Ang sarap ng pakiramdam na nagbunga lahat ng pinaghirapan mo. Then after learning that I passed UST Medicine, I just fell into tears while having mass in St. Jude. Of course, due to tears of joy. And never in my life did I experience crying out for joy until that very moment. I am very thankful for St. Jude. I consider graduation as the happiest moment of my life.
Sana na-inspired kayo sa story ko. Walang impossible kay Lord. At effective ang prayers ni St. Jude. By the way, I graduated BS Medical Technology in UST last April 2009 and I'm going to Med school this June.
Walang masama mangarap. Lahat nagsisimula sa pangarap. Minsan din ako nangarap at nagkatupad.
Goodluck at kaya nyo yan! AJA!
hello there i am also from ust faculty of pharma. BS pharmacy though.
im a neophyte, freshman eh. hehe.
but anyway i have this Ate (pharma din), graduating na siya and she's a dean's lister, though not consistent, but half of the 8 semesters she was a DL. so she's aiming for Cum Laude too. she inspired me so much but then in the middle of the 1st sem i lost my hope of beinga DL. those times were the worst cramming moments of my life. being totally sleepless and getting pasang-awa grade kinabukasan.
last sem we had the worst sched MWF 9 or 1-6 TTH 7-7. Majors are Chemistry and the very easy Botany which caused me 4 (not consecutive) sleepless nights.
I was a 100% percent scholar back then so sobrang pressure. Plus the sched and the Botany.
To my surprise my semestral ave was 1.73 or 1.72 ba yun.
I was so shocked that i was able to maintain the scholarship.
the fact that now our sched is waaay lighter, plus isang lab lang (Phar chem major), brings soo much ease.
so my study habits? basta i study when i need to or feel ko magpapaquiz yan.
i was more studious nung high school ako because i lived in a real house, not in a dorm.
medyo petiks ako haha lalo na nung ang bababa ng grades ko sa Botany and i lost hope. partying and hanging out the whole weekend then babalik ng dorm the night or hours before the exams.. hehe... pre-lims ko lang naman ginawa yun though
now, ako na rin ang nagsabi i'm a neophyte. no certainty of graduating with honors. however the very fact that i survived 1st sem (with the worst sched) and getting in the dean's list motivates me to the coming semesters of maintaining what i have achieved... kahit one step closer pa lang ako =)
though mejo petiks pa rin ako now. haha. nakakatamad kasi talaga pag nasa dorm
pero, there are major changes in my life. halos once a week na lang ako nag iinternet, espeially that i left my laptop sa Bulacan para walang distractions. uhm, yun lang ata yung naging change haha pero major yun, kasi nung highschool internet addict talaga ako.
hehe so aun just sharing i aspire to be a cum laude rin.. sana, sana talaga.. prayers prayers =)
