I went back to UP last week to enroll for my MBA. I expected more from UP 15 years after my first semester. Sadly, some things just don't change like...doggoneit, the bureacruacy!
In order to enlist in 3 subjects, for which I had to pay 25x my tuition rate in law school, I was made to shuttle between the following buildings to "process my papers": College of Business Administration (CBA) - Office of the University Registrar (OUR) - CBA - Computer Center (CC) - CBA - Cashier - OUR. The distance between buildings in UP is no joke, by the way. It's a good thing I brought trusty old Bertha with me. Suffering from a heat stroke would have been the inevitable alrnative had I braved the commute.
All I'm saying is that UP should have more efficient business processes in place by now. The university's been operating since 1908. Probinsiya pa lang ang Fairview, may UP na. So why can't we get our act together? Ha?
Maybe I just got older. Maybe my standards changed. But I just really don't have the patience anymore to stand in line for hours because the grumpy lady at the window can't use both hands when she's typing our names in the computer. I have better things to do with my life. Like maybe go home to my son or earn a living. Naman.
