Addendum Qs

Postby lawschooooollllll » Sat Aug 14, 2010 3:24 am

1) Any ideas about how long an addendum can/should be?

2) Is it possible to attach two addenda? I was just looking at the Columbia application for this cycle and they invite applicants to write an addendum, topics including diversity overcome, LSAT/GPA performance, why Columbia. I definitely am writing an addendum that addresses personal circumstances. Can I also write a "why Columbia" statement/submit two addenda?

1) an addendum can be as long as you would like, but the general consensus seems to be to keep it as short and succinct as possible. don't think of it like a personal statement, which is supposed to demonstrate writing ability. stick to the facts of the situation and try and keep it to a maximum of 1 paragraph.

2) it is definitely possible to attach two addenda. i would only include an addendum about personal circumstances if it explains a weakness elsewhere in your application (GPA, LSAT, etc.)
