combining addendum

Postby HopefulFish » Tue Oct 19, 2010 8:06 pm

So I have an addendum for GPA and another one for multiple lsat.

Would it be wise to combine them in one addendum with two paragraphs?

it doesn't matter either way barring specific school instruction
the plural of addendum is addenda

Most people who correct the grammar of others don't really know what they are talking about.
And yes, I think you should combine them and establish some continuity. Having two negative addendumS sucks.

I would really think it depends on what your reasons for writing the addenda are. If it is a common reason, then yes. If they are two distinct reasons, then no.

You're arguing that properly forming a word's plural form is a spelling issue, not a grammar issue?

I wouldn't, just for the sake of clarity. Anything you can to make it easier on the person reading it.

One addendum per page. It's not as if you have to print out hundreds of copies of this.

one per page. When you upload them to lsac make sure that the title for each can be seen on screen.

Dont worry. I have a few of my own thanks to a few schools( but not all that I am applying to) wanting to list speeding violations, that I have.
