I included a GPA addendum, but I don\'t think it significantly helped or hurt me. My acceptances were pretty much in line with my numbers--no better, no worse. I don\'t believe my letters of recommendation, my personal statement, and my addendum were any better or worse than the selected \"average,\" so if you knock it out of the park, you may do much better.
If I made a big mistake (besides my really, really bad GPA), it was not applying to Northwestern, Georgetown, and Michigan. They seemed to favor high LSAT low GPA students more than other top schools. Unfortunately, I didn\'t want to live in any of those cities.
Good luck with your cycle!
I explained my GPA in an addendum. Use your personal statement to show you\'re a swell person they really want to have around. Don\'t talk about your GPA there.
(This seems to be the generally accepted advice. I have no idea how true it is.)
We have a similar GPAs and I just want to wish you good luck.
