Any comments on addendums?  I had a short absent from school and the trend of my grades was dramatically different (better) in the second half of my undergrad.

Addendums have diminishing returns.  One well written addendum will probably help you out.  Beyond that, I really think that additional addendums need to be both well written and extremely well justified, since you're adding more bulk to your app, thereby taking up more of a busy adcoms time.

To answer your question, yes, I would attach an addendum explaining why you were out, as long as you have a valid explanation. - A site for discussions on books, movies, video games and other forms of entertainment.  We're just starting out, so stop on by, if you have the chance.

I'm opting for a couple of 1/2-page addenda (One would be better but I need 2).  The 1/2 page approach forces you to be concise, but I also think it could make a statement to the adcoms..Hey, I know you're busy--just take a look at this. MO.
