Hi! I would like to request for the information regarding the the number of enrolled undergraduate freshmen during the 1st semester from 1995 to 2015. This would be used not only for research but also for verification of claims regarding the inequity in UP Admission most especially with the TOFI hike and the STFAP/STS. Take note that I'm only looking for the numbers not other personal info.

Thank you
