Combine Addendums?

Postby TrojanHopeful » Fri Nov 11, 2011 2:42 pm

There is a common theme behind my gpa addendum and the addendum for my long gap in college attendance. Should I just combine the two and just submit one explaining the reason behind both gap in attendance and gpa?

I certainly did that. Unless the application asks for a specific addendum due to your circumstances, I think you have a little leeway as to how you explain any perceived flaws in your application.

You can definitely combine them-- just be sure that your school doesn't require a separate one, specifically.

So my question then becomes this:

If the app requires that a gap in college attendance be explained but does not require a gpa explanation (as few do), should I combine the two and attach it as the addendum for the gap in college attendance?

The reason I am fretting over this is because I feel like I am just repeating myself if I include both addendums.
