exactly what I did too, got my dual citizenship mostly to avoid visa issues but as a foreign graduate I still had to pay the 10k fee and foreign student tuition which was totally fine compared to US Med schools. Having the passport made flying back home and living abroad so much easier too.BRUH, I never stood a chance at UP
At the time when I took my exams, I declared myself as a US citizen not knowing how much it would have affected the criteria I’d fall into.
So when I filed my paperwork at UST, a dude from the accounting office told me to get a dual citizenship since I have a PH birth certificate so I didn’t have to pay the ridiculous fees foreign students pay ON TOP OF the tuition fee (which I did on my first prelims during my freshman year).
