Addendums - stating the obvious?


Addendums - stating the obvious?
« on: October 11, 2008, 07:02:19 AM »
Do admissions committees really need addendums that explain a first semester that is significantly worse than any other semester, or can they put two and two together on their own and realize that that first semester is not indicative of a person's academic ability?

I'm tempted to write an addendum, but I feel like all I can really do is discuss what is blatantly obvious in the numbers.  Do they need an addendum to to call their attention to it so that they will realize that my GPA without that semester would be significantly higher?

No, they don't/Yes, they can (put 2 and 2 together, that is).
