- It was a renewal of an expiring NBI clearance. I have no derogatory record or anything.
- They held me up because I had a suspicious entry on my record - that of passing the DOST SEI exam and being eligible for a scholarship
- On another entry, and dated 2002, I was actually cleared of any accountability to the SEI program. True, because I did not avail of the scholarship in the first place.
After signing the Scholarship Agreement, the awardee’s name shall be included in the lists of scholars needing clearance from DOST-SEI forwarded to the Department of Foreign Affairs, National Bureau of Investigation and Bureau of Immigration.but
Upon completion of his/her course, an awardee shall serve in the country preferably in his/her home region on full time basis along his/her field of training for a minimum period equivalent to the length of time he/she enjoyed this scholarship.
- Isn't 10 days of waiting enough? I mean, most applicants get their clearances (even first-timers) in a day
- It was a renewal, for crying out loud.
Sergio Cao, UP Diliman Chancellor, in his investiture speech, said that there is a certain something that draws him back to UP Diliman, and for some of us, the UP System:
Maraming dahilan kung bakit nananatili tayo dito sa UP Diliman; ang ilan sa mga ito ay tinatawag na “psychic income.” Halimbawa, matatalino ang ating mga estudyante, marunong manaliksik, marunong maghanap at gumawa ng paraan kung kailangan; mga estudyanteng sanay sa pagpuna hindi lamang para maturingang “kritikal” kung hindi may pag-iisip na “analitikal,” nagtatanong, sumusuri. Sila ang dahilan kung bakit nananatiling bata ang mga gurong matagal nang namamalagi sa UP.Nothing could be farther from the truth.
