Addendum question
« on: June 08, 2012, 12:08:12 PM »
Does anyone have any recommendations on how to approach my Special Major?  As I see it there can be three pieces to it, but I am not sure if I need all three.

1) The story of how I found out about Special Majors and the process I went through to set it up.

2) What a Special Major is according to the University.

3) Describe my Special Major; how I selected my classes and with what purpose.

Thoughts?  How much is too much for an addendum?

Well, I'm no expert but I would focus mainly on number 3 and how it relates to your decision to go to law school.  You can include a short paragraph of 1 and 2, but keep it brief as to the details of the set up, etc.  You just want to let the admissions committee know what it is without going into a whole lot of detail.  They are mostly looking as to how your special major relates to law school or how it would help you as a law student or lawyer.
