Should I include my CV with my personal statement? I think my work experience is highly relevant but it's nearly impossible to write a concise 1.5 pages while including all the places and roles I have undertaken.
I'm confused a little, I thought the only way to get an F in a P/F class is to fail the class...right? did you fail it or withdraw? If you simply "replaced" the grade with a new one after retaking it, then there really isn't an excuse for failing the first time...I'm just wondering why lsac made it an F if you didn't actually fail.
At Michigan anything less than a C+ in a class taken Pass/Fail is considered a failure
An addendum, if you decide to write one, is where you would put the grade explanation. Whether it is wise to write the addendum is a different question.
Why would it be unwise to offer a simple explanation that the GPA i graduated with is .11 better than what is being handed to them?
it just makes no sense because if I had got a P it would have counted as nothing to my undergrad GPA and nothing towards LSAC's calculation - so it could only eff me.
Do I make my personal statement two pages, one the formal personal statement and the other an explanation of this issue in brief?
Not only do classes that I took as a senior in high school that weren't supposed to count for credit drop my GPA, but a class I took pass/fail, meaning it wouldn't affect my GPA at all and I was encouraged to just let go in favor of taking again for credit and getting the B- i pulled, counted as an F. Not the C- I would have gotten had it not been Pass/Fail and reported on my transcript. It's marked as an F. Thus my adjusted GPA is .11 lower than the one I graduated with from the University of Michigan.
Is this normal/correct?!
