Do I write GPA addendum for ADHD

Hey all! I had a late ADHD diagnosis an went through most of college not knowing I had it till Junior year when I got diagnosed. I ended up with a 3.5 which isn’t terrible but I’m wondering if I should write an addendum explaining my late ADHD diagnosis. I have issues with slow processing speeds, inattentiveness, periods of spiked energy and then no energy at all and also it takes me longer to learn and retain.

    I got accoms (don't wanna say how much) because of ADHD/Bipolar. Message me if you need insight. But to directly answer your question, yes you should if you feel you need it and yes you can get accommodations!

    Yes! Any advice is appreciated!

  • No, in my opinion that is a very respectable GPA. Unless you have a semester on your transcript where you were placed on academic probation or were academically dismissed, then I would write one. Otherwise, I think you are drawing unnecessary negative attention to a fine GPA.

    Ah, that’s a good point. I’ve been on the fence about it. Thank you for the tip!
