Here is a more self-scolding version:

As wonderful as my time abroad has been for my development as a person and potential law student, there has been one downside. By failing to properly anticipate problems that I have encountered, my undergraduate grade point average was significantly marred. Along my journey a computer was stolen and another was irreparably damaged, causing me to receiving non-passing grades during the Fall terms of 2008 and 2009. I should have been better prepared for these possibilities, especially after the first instance. I retook each of the three courses and received high marks, but the upward trend in my undergraduate performance was nonetheless stunted. As a result, this stands as the only aspect of my time abroad that I regret.

Maybe this is a better way to go?

I have a different misconduct addendum that I could use some help with. If anyone could send me a PM I'll share it with you.

My GPA reflects that I retook each of the three courses and received high marks, but the LSDAS GPA does not, and as such the upward trend in my undergraduate performance was diminished nonetheless stunted. As a result, this stands as the only aspect of my time abroad that I regret. While I value my travels in every way, my only regret is I learned this valuable lesson too late.

Thanks for the help on this. It seems as if I can get all of the same information while still sounding contrite.
