Medical Addendum?

Postby Stlfan5 » Fri Jun 19, 2015 10:42 am


First time poster. I am wondering just how much consideration is given to a medical addendum by various admission committees. For example, my freshman year I had mono/strep which had a detrimental effect on my GPA. Since that semester I have averaged a 3.91. With my first freshman semester included I'm sitting at a 3.73. What I'm truly asking is whether or not an addendum is appropriate, or if its a waste of time. I have not yet taken the LSAT and plan on doing so Oct 2015. I appreciate any feedback.

I would probably not write that as an addendum. Medical addenda can be appropriate in more severe circumstances, but many people have had mono and strep, and many have gone through it without a decline in performance, so it'll likely look like you're trying to make excuses or are not able to deal with tough situations, and perhaps both.
