What's doubly funny is that I was about to say even I'm not comfortable with that. Even as a joke.

You are my favorite ever.

Hello all!

I'm fairly new to this website but I have already gotten valuable insight from it. I was wondering if you all could give me some feedback on my GPA addendum. I tried to make it as short as possible without leaving out any information that I feel would help me. Thanks in advance for all your feedback!

GPA ADDENDUM
I believe my overall college GPA is not indicative of my true abilities because I have always excelled in the classroom. Unfortunately, I come from a small family comprised of only my parents and sister. Not having any relatives in California, we have always been an extremely close-knit family. Regrettably, my sister went through a bitter divorce during my time in college. My niece Ashley was caught in the middle of this brutal divorce and I quickly came to her aid. I supported her physically and emotionally for those times were particularly rough on her. By the end of my college career, I was her only father figure.

and the adcom says, LIFE HAPPENS. It would be better if you phrased the whole thing like, I had to work X hrs. a week extra to support my niece during her divorce...

You addendum is a little over the top and should probably be toned down a bit. I'd recommend starting a thread about it, because this thread here is like a city deserted by its residents after months of intense bombing.
