Addendum for failing a class?

Postby Broncos847 » Wed Nov 19, 2014 2:32 pm

So I failed a class my sophomore year. There was an assignment due the last day that was worth 35% of my grade and I blew it off until the night before, not realizing it required an extended visit to a university building that closed at five to complete. Professor wouldn't take it late so yeah I failed. Should I include an addendum? I retook said class and got an A.

No. That explanation just makes you look irresponsible (not saying you are, but that explanation basically says you put off something important till the last minute.

Yeah that's not a good reason. Don't write an addendum.
