To Write an Addendum or Not?

Postby JoeShmoe11 » Sat Oct 23, 2010 5:57 pm

Hello again. I'm in an interesting and inconvenient situation. Between this semester and last I moved out of my mother's home (who is a Nurse Practitioner) and into my father's home (who is unemployed) for a number of reasons. Regardless, this came with a significant change in my financial situation and I was forced to leave my university and take 7 credits at community college for this semester before going back to my real school and finishing up my degree next semester. I suspect law schools might be confused when they see I am currently enrolled in community college. Would an addendum be in order here?

My opinion: if you don't write an addendum, it will be completely up to the adcomm's imagination. If you think this could hurt you, then write something short and simple to clarify things.

Write an addendum just like you wrote it here. Keep it factual, nothing emotional.
