GPA Addendum

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jan 11, 2013 1:17 pm

About to submit my applications, just wanted to make sure this GPA addendum is ok. My GPA went from a 3.7 to a 3.56 as a result of this semester. 1 D+ , 1 C-, 3 B's, 2.5 GPA for the semester. The addendum is below.

GPA Addendum

In September 2011, I was involved in an automobile accident. As a result of the accident, I suffered a concussion. The symptoms of the concussion, mainly headaches, were severe at times. This led to me missing a lot of school during the fall 2011 semester. It is my opinion that this led to my poor performance during this semester. A copy of the crash report and medical documents can be provided upon request.

This may be the only solid GPA addendum I've ever seen in this board.

Only change I would make is to "missing a lot of school." I'd do something a little less conversational, like "missing many/several classes."

Agree. Other than that, it's written fine.
