Addendum Critique....

Postby deevilsih » Thu Jan 14, 2010 6:36 pm

How does this sound for an addendum? Thanks!

GPA/Disability Addendum

I was diagnosed with ADHD at age 24 during the first semester I returned to school following a three year hiatus. After my diagnosis and subsequent treatment, I was able to achieve much higher grades than in the five semesters I attended college without appropriate medication. If the semesters before my diagnosis are discounted, my LSDAS GPA would be 3.6 rather than 3.34. I hope the admissions committee takes this into account when evaluating my application.

In addition, my grades during my first semester at XXX College were adversely affected by working demanding 40+ hour weeks as assistant to visiting professor XXX during her tenure at XXX. Further information detailing my time with Dr. XXX can be found in my personal statement.

Medical documentation for the ADHD diagnosis is available upon request.
