I took the DLSUCET on the 7th of April 2013. DLSU held special exams for people who are aspiring to get into their university who weren’t able to take it last year. I didn’t graduate highschool here in Pinas kasi. There are really a lot of people out there who are saying that DLSUCET is the hardest exam among the Big 4. Surprisingly though, I was one of at least 3k+ who passed among the 24k+ DLSUCET takers. UST has been my dream school ever since, and I flunkedit. DLSUCET, as claimed by others, was even harder than UPCAT. But I found it actually easier than the USTET. Maybe I was really setting my mind into it. It’s De La Salle University or nothing. I was a little more faithful, a little more hopeful. And although I only had one and a half hour of sleep, since I had to take a bath, (and curse puberty) I had to fix myself, and we have to travel an hour and a half to get to La Salle, surprisingly, I was really alert throughout the exam.
Our results were supposed to come out by April 17 2013, but since my requirements were incomplete e.g. recommendation forms (I was so pulled down when I didn’t pass UPCAT and USTET that I didn’t even bother checking out the requirements needed for DLSU) and since I graduated high school abroad, I really need to e-mail my school and be an annoying asshole just so I could get the needed requirements ASAP. I was so nervous and shit when people started to post things about their results on twitter and tumblr that they passed and they’re going to confirm their slots. I was wishing that I’d be one of them, too. But the moment of truth came on April 22 2013. I had to go to La Salle to pass my requirements and since that was the last day of confirmation for freshmen, I really need to know my freaking results. The guy on the admissions counter (he’s small, but CUTE) told us that I already have my results but I can’t access it yet since they’re still processing my requirements. We walked around DLSU and went to The Store and I can see shirts that say “La Salyano ako!” “Can’t hide that La Sallian Pride” and La Salle varsity jackets and it only occurred to me that moment that maybe, I really do belong to La Salle. We ate at KFC, and then we went back to the Henry Sy bldg to check if my results are already okay. I was surprised when we got into the counter since the cute admissions guy was already giving me a Statement of Responsibilities form (meaning I passed) when I didn’t even know my results yet. But then he started leading us to the confirmation spot and then my mom asked “Pasado ba anak ko?” and then the cute admissions guy said “Opo” with a smile. I actually think I fell in love with him that moment. HAHAHA. I confirmed my slot and took my ID picture. It was all of a sudden though since I actually considered going to San Beda since I passed the exams, too. And I also have an FEU scholarship, but I’m happy.I don’t regret choosing La Salle.
