Several addendums on one page?

Postby vanillawafer » Sun Jan 24, 2010 4:33 am

Is it acceptable to put several addendums on one page, so long as they each have their own section? I have a brief LSAT addendum that says this:

In December of 2009 I took the LSAT in ******, **. I had the H1N1 virus during this time and due to this unfortunate circumstance, I feel that my score is well below my real potential.

And a brief educational history addendum for certain applications that only provided room for a list of 3 previous schools, because I attended 4 and had to include it on a separate attachment.

And finally, a brief addendum about a speeding ticket.

It all takes up about half a page, total. Seems silly to submit 3 separate attachments?

Each addendum should get its own page.

FWIW, I submitted a separate addendum for each topic that I addressed.

Should be fine as long as the section headers are obvious & clear.

I have to write addendums for arrests and disciplinary action by school. Since all the arrests were at my university and resulted in disciplinary action as well as legal action I am writing about both legal issues and disciplinary issues on the same page.

That's what I originally assumed, but now I'm starting to think otherwise.

Put each addendum on its own page. Don't assume the headers are obvious and clear; make it clear by making separate pages.
