Poor quarter GPA addendum

Postby JustGottaMakeIt » Sat Oct 22, 2011 1:34 am

Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone could help me out in determining if I should write an addendum for a poor GPA without a death in the family or major illness. Honestly, I was on board for 3 different organizations which were all hosting our biggest events of the year during the quarter while also working part time (20/hrs a week). To cut the story short, I ended up getting an A, B+, C+ and a D-. The next 3 quarters I picked up my GPA dramatically and I was wondering if it would benefit me at all to write an addendum.

I'd be concerned that it would look like you're pointing out that you have issues with prioritizing and scheduling. Because honestly, you should have cut down the extracurriculars when it became apparent that your grades were going to suffer that much. No club is worth getting a D- for.
