Should I write an addenda if I had a very low UGPA?

I know the general consensus is that UGPA and LSAT barely matter (if at all) in transfer apps, but my UGPA was very low. I included an addenda with my LS apps, but wasn't sure if it was something I should do when transferring as well.

Don't bother. My UGPA was terrible and it didn't affect my transfer cycle at all. If your transferring, your law school grades are high enough that they demonstrate whatever you did to fuck up undergrad is in the past.

Only if you were ever in academic probation or dismissed for grades (since you have to disclose both). Otherwise, don't bother.

Agreed. I had a shitty UGPA that I wrote an addendum for when I was applying as a 0L but I didn't bother for transferring.

Your law school grades are your addendum.

So what's wrong with Camden ? :wink:

No need for a transfer applicant to include an addendum regarding UGPA unless requested by the target school.
