I shouldn't write this GPA addendum, right?

Postby LikelyThrowaway » Thu Jul 21, 2016 3:30 am

Basically I'm dumb and dropped a couple of PE classes too late in the term, and so I have two Ns (no passes) on my transcript. It lowers my LSAC GPA by .04, from 3.83 to 3.79. My LSAT is 178 so I feel like I've got a shot at HYS, and I think this 0.04 diminishes my chances a fair bit. I'm slightly tempted to write an addendum just explaining what happened but it's not a good story, just me being careless about two BS classes I took during my senior year to maintain full-time student status. My guess, though, is that this is a bad idea and will cause the admissions officers' eye roll that I've been warned about. What do you fine folks think?

Don't write an adendum for a 3.79. You should be better than fine with your numbers.

This. 0.04 GPA points will not be the difference in you getting in or not. Congrats on a great LSAT OP
