Addendum?
« on: September 19, 2008, 04:15:41 PM »
Hello All,

I already attended law school for one semester in the fall of 2005.  I did well, but decided to leave after one semester for various reasons and always left the option open for returning. I am reapplying for fall 2009 and am starting my personal statement. The plan was to address this previous matriculation in the statement and partially build it around this issue, but I wonder if anything thinks it would be more appropriate to address it in an addendum?

I think it would be better in an addendum...use your PS to tell a better story about yourself.

addendum, absolutely--esp. since there is a significant time gap. Your PS should ideally be about something awesome you've done more recently/are doing right now. You want them to like you--so when they get to your addendum, they're primed to think "hey, no big deal!"
