The Most Expensive University

According the a survery made by the Inquirer, "University of Asia and the Pacific tops the list. Its cost per unit depends on the course, but according to its registrar's office, one unit costs P2,018 on the average. With usually 27 units in one term and with two terms in an academic year, a freshman has to shell out about P108,972 for this school year's tuition alone."

Wow, that amount covers my four years of undergraduate as well as my three years of graduate studies with money left over for baon. No wonder families in the provinces invite half the town and have mini-fiestas complete with roast pig and band music when their kids make it to UP.
