They care about the cumulative LSDAS GPA- sorry... throw an addendum at them and hope it sticks

As noted schools only care about your LSDAS cumulative GPA. No you don't need to mention that your grades dropped in the last semester. Also writing an addendum for the earlier grades is pointless unless you have a valid excuse like serious illness, death in the family, etc.
