Addendum help -- should I introduce the reputation of my school?

Hi,

1. I graduated from a college in Taiwan. It is highly respected in Taiwan but probably no adcom here was familiar with the school. Should I write an addendum to advertise my school a bit to "leverage" my average GPA (3.4)?

2. Should I write an addendum just to mention my junior/senior GPA (3.9) is higher than my cumulative GPA (3.4)? I've already included a resume that showed the trend of grades. I think probably I don't need to, but I just want someone to confirm my thought.

Thanx a lot.

1.  I would, just to give them some perspective.
2.  No, because it's redundant from your academic resume.

first, i think you should spell "jurassic" correctly.

HAha...actually I do know the correct spelling of "jurassic." But I have used the same netID since junior high so I wouldn't want to change it.

But thanks to the first reply. Your advice was helpful.
