addenda

Postby Tushbush » Sat Sep 01, 2012 3:49 pm

So how long do the C&F addenda need to be? I have one for a couple of traffic citations I recieved that is only about a paragraph and a half, and one for being placed on academic probation during undergrad, which is about one page long. Is this sufficient? or do I need to get deeper into how I have learned from my mistakes?

Also, this may be a stupid Q, but do I need to indent my PS and Addenda when I start new paragraphs? All of the personal statements I have seen on TLS have not been indented. I didnt know if that was because the statements are just copy/pasted or because they are not supposed to be indented?

Both are way too long, at least according to the advice normally given on this forum

Yea, the traffic violations should pretty much just be a list. The academic probation shouldn't be more than a few paragraphs; 3/4 of a page tops. Unless there's some crazy story behind it that the law schools will care about.
