Quick question, just wanted some thoughts on this.
So I have a 3.42 GPA, but my freshman year I had a 2.87. I was on the dean's list (which shows up on the report as academic honors) ever since. This is due to a few different economic/social circumstances at the time.
Now, many PS prompts mention academic honors. Would this be considered an academic honor(making the dean's list?) On one hand, I feel it shows distinguished academic achievement. On the other, I feel like every law school applicant has made the dean's list at some point. What do they mean by academic honors?
So should I explain these circumstances in an addendum or incorporate the situation into my ps, or maybe even a diversity statement, since it coincides with socioeconomic disadvantages?
Thanks for the help TLS!
