To help facilitate the Secretariat's work, please note the following:

(1) NAME – in general, the name on your birth certificate must correspond to that on your transcripts and petition form. However, for female students who got hitched while in law school, the transcript may not reflect the change of status. In that case, a simple letter to the Registrar will clear things up. (This is why a marriage
certificate is required.)

(2) AGENT – for those who will be absent from UP for a considerable amount of time, please ask a friend to act as your agent and inform the Secretariat.

(3) CONTACTS - details and additional requirements will be posted on the Bar Boards and website. You can place your questions thereon or in the lounge suggestion box. Those with deficiencies will be personally contacted.

*This checklist is also available in the bar0ps primer which is available at the lounge, in the green box on the shelves. Other stuff in the primer include acads
announcements and tips from UP Law grads like recent topnotchers Jary and Ron, and the Cordova Framework for a no exam will ruin my night life tips. :D
