I'm CPA, been in the workforce for 12 yrs & scored very well on the LSAT. Based on my score, my work experience & time away from UG, I'm shooting for top ten schools.
My school calculated GPA was a 3.2 & might trend lower with the LSAC scaling, though. I don't have a good excuse for my grades: I was immature my first couple of yrs in school. Once I hit my upper level accounting courses, my grades improved drastically - probably above 3.5 - and I made deans list most if not all semesters my junior & senior year.
Adcomms will see this trending on my transcript & know what I accomplished after school from my resume, ps & LORs. My question is whether I need to address my grades with an addendum? I did have a learning experience after my sophomore year, which I think would make a compelling story, if necessary.
