How My Friend Appealed to Ateneo… and Succeeded!


While I failed to convince Ateneo to give me a second chance, my friend on the other hand got lucky. Well, that and he provided medical certificates and the right references.

I was unable to meet the QPI for the school year 2007-2008 because of several reasons. There were events that I did not expect to happen that made it difficult for me to do so. One reason would be the quarrel I have with my parents. My relationship with them was not very good when I left for college. Being away from home, our relationship grew quite cold, and we then decided to seek help. In order to solve this we sought help from the guidance office. I was recommended to see Dr. Washington Garcia regularly in order to consult with this matter. Our family also sought the help of a Psychiatrist, Cynthia Leynes. I was diagnosed to have depression and was prescribed anti-depressant pills.
