Beurre, just sent you a pm.
Thanks to everyone who has looked over my ps thus far. Given the comments I received, I tweaked some parts of my ps, especially my conclusion. Anyone want to take a look at my third draft?? you know you want to....
Ditto what quincym said... if you haven't done so already, I recommend taking a look at what Anna Ivey has to say about addenda. Basically, she says keep it short and to the point, don't tell the adcomms how to do their job, etc. I would probably cut out the entire first sentence and start with something like "I am submitting this addendum to explain why my grades..." and then just write a few sentences about why you think the second half of your grades are more indicative of your potential. I would also be very careful about how you phrase things. Telling the adcomms hey, i was immature and unfocused in my youth, but my grades back then are "entirely irrelevant and should in no way be considered..." seems like you're telling them how to do their job. they're going to consider whatever the hell they want to consider (sigh...) and you're basically just submitting this thing to ask for clemency.

Seems that there are a ton of ppl who had a significant score increase (congrats to everyone!). Anyone planning on writing an addendum to explain the score increase? I pray to God the adcomms ignore my previous score...
