C&F Addendum Critique

Postby uc2011 » Sun Jan 06, 2013 7:19 pm

I realize this is about the billionth one of these posted but if anyone could give it a once over I would really appreciate it. I am a little worried that the combination of incidents shows a bit of a pattern. Thought about expanding on this a bit but the general consensus around here seems to be to keep it as short and concise as possible. Also, am I correct including all C&F issues in one addendum or should I submit three [addendum ] separately?

On August 23rd 2008 I was charged with reckless driving (failure to drive right). Following the completion of a court order probationary period the charges were dismissed.

On Date X, 2009 I was issued a citation for Minor in Possession of alcohol at the University of XXXX . I completed the course required by the university and the charge was expunged from my permanent record.

On June 9th, 2012 I was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of (DUI) alcohol and hit and run property damage in Hometown, State. Following the arrest I plead guilty to reckless driving and hit and run property damage. I completed all court order treatment and evaluation requirements and it was determined that this incident was not indicative of a larger substance abuse problem. This incident was a spectacular lack in judgment for which I am extremely remorseful. The entire process has been a very humbling learning experience; I look forward to putting this incident behind me moving forward with the next chapter of my life.

first of all, you "pleaded" guilty (past tense)

and it was determined that this incident was not indicative of a larger substance abuse problem.

maybe explain this a little? who determined it, exactly?

and i would personally get rid of the last sentence, starting with "the entire process", but if anything esp. the first half of it - you provide no support for why it was a humbling learning experience and imho it doesn't really matter anyway
