Re: Addendum vs Additional Paragraph in Personal Statement

I just don't want to overkill it. This is specifically for schools for which I was accepted to. I feel it should be addressed somewhere within the application.

Thoughts?

Thanks


I don't know how not doing something because you don't have the money counts as sacrifice. I would write an addendum of no more than two sentences.

I would think if it is a goal that you have aimed most of your education and life towards and you pass on that to put yourself in a better financial position, I would consider that a sacrafice. Could I have went? Yes. But I decided why not wait another year at a job where I am compensated well (meaning not as much in SL)..

Thanks for the advice
