Does this sound like a reasonable addendum?
« on: August 24, 2004, 03:53:27 PM »
I'm trying to explain why the 4th year on my UG transcript shows an entire year of enrollment, but only one year of classes.  Does this sound like a reasonable addendum explanation?

Although I completed my undergraduate coursework at the end of the fall 1999 semester, I deferred accepting my degree until the end of the 1999-2000 academic year. During the spring semester of that year, I took a leave of absence to intern full-time at the U.S. Department of State and returned in May to graduate with my classmates.

Ughhh.  You don't need an addendum.

Why not?  It's not really clearly explained anywhere else in my app so I have this big hole in my transcript, and it's actually a nicer way of saying I couldn't get the stupid form turned in on time to graduate in December.

the fact that you interned will suffice for your explanation.  i agree.  you dont need an addendum

I think you should put it in there. Its well written and short.  They'll be relieved not to read a sob story on an addendum for once!
