“The 1701 Form is making me crazy!
I’ve been reading your blog for a while now. It’s been really helpful, but
can you show me how to fill up the 1701 form?
I’ve read your blog post about it, but I’m not familiar with the lingo. Can
you break it down, as in parang nag-eexplain ka sa isang college freshman.
If it’s not too much to ask. I would really REALLY appreciate it.”
