Wasn't sure where to post my original message.  Sorry if the double posting offends anyone (newbie).  But here goes...


I would like to hear some opinions or advice as to how I should approach this addendum.

Basically, I averaged about a 3.78 during my freshman, sophomore and senior year. During my junior year I suffered a detached retina and went under the knife (detached retina = no vision).  This left me out of commission for almost a month during my fall semester.  As a result my grades suffered.

During my 2nd semester the retina in my left eye detached which left me no option but to undergo surgery again.  I couldn't afford to take the year off so I decided to fight through it.   

In the end my average GPA for my junior year was a 3.3. 

Bad vision and bad luck I guess.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Pennylane has recommended that I give a short addendum with the facts. 

Any other thoughts?
