Re: Addendums

An addendum can be a vital tool to provide broader context regarding your GPA to the admissions committee.  Your GPA is solid, but an addendum would be appropriate if: (a) you had a term where your semester GPA deviated from your regular standard of performance; (b) you had an uncharacteristically low grade, or series of grades, that were abberrations; and/or (c) you faced or endured an extenuating circumstance that disrupted your undergraduate career, or brought down your performance, or had another commitment that you had to balance with your studies (work, family, etc).

If any of these instances are true for you, than I would highly consider drafting an addendum.  An addendum empowers you with the ability to provide the admissions committee with specific context as to why your grades are not a full reflector of you potential to excel in law school. 

If you have further questions, or need help constructing an addendum, please contact me directly.
