I’m with this on this issue.” o Personal opinion: Apply to incoming freshies only. o He talked with Dean Pangalangan regarding the issue. Thereafter Dean Pangalangan talked with Dean Concepcion.

Points to be raised: ex post facto, effectivity, voting process 2. Be open to possible compromise 3. Attach the policy, not the person 4. Ask help from professors5 TO DO: 1. Conduct a survey

To show that all students are affected and do not agree with the retroactive application of QPI  LSG is not lawyering for students at the bottom – Tonight dapat – Questions? 1. Are you in favor of QPI rule? 2. If Yes, are you in favor of applying QPI to current students? 3. If Yes, Are you in favor of applying QPI to incoming freshies? 4. If No, what system do they prefer? 5. Are you in favor of QPI rule replacing the old system? 2. Talk with the Dean tomorrow – worst case; talk with 2 persons (Aict and Louie) – corporate attire 3. Summarized Position Paper – tonight – to be given to Dean (at most 2 pages) – Points to be raised: PROCEDURAL DUE PROCESS 1. Special contract a. imbued with public interest b. *do not apply to upperclass 2. Ex-post facto a. Punitive b. If QPI is applied, students will not be able to enroll c. In the 3-strike rule, GWA of 2.75 is not a “crime” before. If we’ll apply the QPI rule immediately, we’re making the 2.75 GWA obtained from the previous semesters a “crime” d. *Include discussion on prospective application of the policies i. Do not apply the policy in June e. Argument on QPI was merely suspended and not abolished i. 1st years – 3rd years were not oriented regarding the QPI rule 3. Why were they pushing to implement the rule? Motivation a. You want to motivate but you purge the students b. Contradicting c. Is the policy reasonable? – LSG’s stand: prospective application 4.
