I would like to read a copy if someone used an addendum for a low GPA?  bagley@csus.edu

Anybody?  Pretty please?

(trust me, my reasons are far different from yours, see I am not that smart, thus, low GPA)

Do I need another addendum about non ethnic diversity such as 10 years of self employment.
Hmmm.  Never thought about that before.  Wouldn't that be something better suited for a personal statement, or do I re-emphasize it in an addendum.  the latter seems silly and repetitive, but I really am not sure. 
And the sign said "Long-haired freaky people need not apply" So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why. He said "You look like a fine outstanding young man, I think you'll do.  So I took off my hat, I said "Imagine that. Huh! Me workin' for you!"Sign, sign, everywhere a sign..

The adcom will read anything that you include in your app.  If you feel like you have something relevant to say that you did not include in your PS, then by all means, do it.  But make it worth their time.  If you have experiences from ten years of self employment that will enrich the law school environment, then write a kick ass addendum about it.

I believe I do.  What do you think about mentioning in my PS and further elaborating on it in an addendum?  Both is ok, maybe?  I couldn't really do it justice in a PS due to length issues, but I have to disagree with you that the adcom will read everything in an app.  This was further addressed today when I spoke with my attorney LOR.  He says I will be lucky to just have my PS read, so that is why I want it mentioned their before it is tossed.  FWIW, he agrees with me, Schools that say they read every app, or schools that say "all apps that are contingent upon a  GPA/LSAT of xxx/yyy will be read," is just not true.
