Addenda for Low Grade

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jun 22, 2015 12:09 pm

I saw another thread about posting an [addendum] for a low grade. I didnt have a crummy prof, but I was really sick during an exam. I have documentation of this from my doctor. I made a B in contracts this spring. in the fall I made an A-. I was well prepared for the exam, but I was on like three different meds trying to overcome strep, congestion and fever. I took too many meds and was like X_x during the exam.

Worth it to explain that I'm a dumb who was overconfident due to the A- in the fall and super stoopid sick during the exam?

Ehhhh you'd have to be very careful with your tone. People take tests sick all the time, so you better have an extra special reason why they should view a grade you made during the first year of law school differently. Unless you went to the ER immediately following the test, I don't think that calling extra attention to the grade is going to help.

There is zero upside to such an addenda and some downside. Don't do it.
