  15. Good day! I am very much interested about this program. Can you please send me a soft copy of all the forms as soon as possible? Does the deadline for the submission of the requirements is on December 31? And regarding the requirements, i had already applied for my NBI clearance 2 weeks ago and it just so happen that they gave me the LOCAL not the FOREIGN one. I ask them if they can make me another one but unfortunately they told me that I can get my NBI clearance after 1 week which is January 3. Is it okay if i pass the local one for a while? or it is really required to pass a foreign NBI Clearance. Please. . . I really want to join this program!
