when you need to submit more than one addendum?

Postby DavidYurman85 » Mon Jul 05, 2010 5:16 pm

i know that adcomms aren't fond of applications that land on their desk with a thud. but has anyone had any experience with submitting multiple addendums? if the app. doesn't specify, should they all go on one pg or separate?

thanks for any info!

and if someone would rather pm, feel free.

if you have more than one, make sure they are really worth it.

I don't see anything wrong with submitting them on one page if you use large font/bolded headings to separate them

Separate pages would be better. It's just easier to identify what's what. It doesn't sound like a big deal, but 300 applications in, little things like that are helpful.

i've received two diff opinions...anyone else want to weigh in?

Thanks guys!

one is for a traffic citation (i still need to make sure that it needs explaining: i got stopped for driving w/o a licenese) and the other is "gpa trend" and "gaps in enrollment."

edit: clarify traffic cit.

I would skip or link the gpa trend to the gap in enrollment. I think they will see the connection. On applications you write that their was a traffic violation, I don't think an addendum is necessary. Stick to one addendum and no more than one paragraph.
