What do you guys think about attaching an addendum to my application with regards to being a PT student and how I will only have 21 units for the adcoms to look at, as I won't receive my summer grades until mid August (which will be too late for them to use to evaluate) and to please render a decision on my application with what I have (letting them know that by summer's end and before the start of my 2L I will have completed 26 semester units)? Some schools have suggested that I write such an addendum, I am just not sure if this will be drawing even more attention to my application and my PT 1L year than I should. Seems like a tough decision to make.. any insight?

If I write it, they may realize they won't receive my summer grades and make a decision based on my grades that they have in front of them (i.e., my PT 1L grades), but at the same time they will also see that I am PT and may not accept me because of this.

If I don't write it, they may not know that I won't be receiving my grades in time, and may wait to render a decision on my application until those grades come in, or they may not even know that I am enrolled in summer classes and may be wondering why is this guy trying to apply with 21 units, doesnt he know he needs to have more to xfer here? But then again, there is the possibility they will overlook this altogether.

BLAH.

GOD DAMNIT MEGA!!

Honestly though, you put it best yourself law, decide what's best for you and go for it. In the end, I don't think it will make that big of a difference and whats meant to be will be.

All I meant to do was tell you what I did, and what others did before me and therefore advised me to. In the end, I felt like the more things I said about the reason's I deserve to get in "despite" something else, the more they would overlook me. I was EXTREMELY skeptical about not adding the addendum and couldn't believe everyone was telling me not to. Now, I totally understand it and advocate it myself. All a personal preference though.

Hi Stinger,

I am doing my homework for next year...I am going to be a PT student at a T2 this Fall and was wondering which t14s/other toIp schools you made it to, and how many units you had to have. I jerri getting mixed answers of whether or not a PT student can apply to certain schools, especially schools in the top 14. Most websites say one must have a year of full-time study complete. I would appreciate it if you could let me know what schools say otherwise! I will have 22 units by the end of the school year and am planning on taking summer school courses, as well. Anyway, congrats![/quote]

You are doing yourself a disservice thinking about these things now. It serves no purpose other than to add extra pressure and distract you from succeeding at your current and likely permanent school.
