I think this is close to the truth.

I should say, this is really the TRUE ranking for Philippine Universities at the present without prejudice to other schools. I am not an alumnus to any of these schools.

Those who are claiming this to be the true rankings are clueless. The data THES used for UP is dated 2006. While the other Philippine universities have been submitting up to date information for their schools. This is the only way they can get ahead of UP !
