addenda are going to be very situation/person specific, so I don't think looking at one sample is going to help you.

Both of these books have chapters on addenda, I believe along with a few samples. I'd suggest getting them from your library or buying an inexpensive used copy:

http://www.amazon.com/Ivey-Guide-Law-School-Admissions/dp/0156029790/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1250092495&sr=8-1

http://www.amazon.com/How-Get-Into-Top-Schools/dp/0735204292/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1250092523&sr=8-3

Keep in mind addenda for low GPAs don't usually do any good at all unless you have one of these scenarios:

1) Situation that led to low GPA. Situation resolved. GPA goes up.

2) low GPA that doesn't go up. graduate from college with low GPA. years go by after college. then you apply to law school.
