First I was wondering how these work, do I just make an addendum and package it with all my applications? Or do only some schools take it?
My other question is if you guys think it is worth mentioning this:
I moved out of my parents house during my first year of college, and I was working full-time, and trying to get out and explore the social life since I lived in a very close-minded enviroment. My grades were pretty terrible for about 2-3 years, and then it went up a bit over the next couple of years. Do you think it is worth an addendum explaining that working as much as I did and, because of my upbringing, my social life, was the reason my GPA started out so low?
Secondly, is this a good enough excuse or should I add/change any of that?
