A small victory…
But a victory, nonetheless. A few months ago, my classmates (the ones who earned a GPA of 3.6 and above) and I balked at having had our honors yanked from underneath our feet…on graduation day, no less. Our parents didn’t get to climb up on stage to put the (silver? Because Sean truly deserved the gold) medals around our necks. Kuya Alex fought like hell for it, hehe.
The honors committee decided to award us through our transcripts. I received mine today:
It says: “Graduated with the degree of Master in Information Management with Academic Distinction on May 12, 2007 per S.O. No. 80-474107-0008 s. 2007, issued on August 9, 2007.”
Forgive the crappy photo…I’m going to scan the entire thing tomorrow or something.
Ok, so I didn’t get to climb up on stage as expected, at least it’s written on my transcript. The only thing that irks me about this transcript is that they included all my educational institutions except UP! Gah! Well, I’m not going to complain anymore since my previous transcript, also from APC, states that I did graduate from UP before I applied for a second degree.
Anyhoo…lemme just savor this small victory right now.
More importantly: Thanks, Kuya Alex, for being the veritable hero in fighting for this. There were only five of us (out of almost 40 students) who got 3.6 and above, which made everything else special.
