    @nice_guy Baka me CO ka na, then direct grant na. :) Parang mas masarap pa din ang pakiramdam na bigla na lang nasa email mo ang grant mails eh hehe. Nagsearch din ako regarding dun sa nareceive kong letter regarding assessment commencement na wala namang hininging docs, parang ilan lang nakakareceive tapos wala nang communication from CO after.
