How much does an addendum help?

Postby T Ro » Fri Nov 02, 2012 5:47 pm

My freshman year of college I was very ill. I had a 2.86 and 3.25 GPA those semesters.

The next 4 semesters I had a 3.66,3.78,3.77, and 3.76

How much will my addendum explaining help me? (My LSAT is 170, GPA 3.52, for reference)

If you have a legitimate medical excuse, it can make a small difference. OP, definitely write one explaining the situation, and point out the grade discrepancy. It should help a bit, but don't expect any miracles.
