Law School Applications / Include CV with personal statement?
« on: February 01, 2007, 02:57:09 PM »
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?!
