I moved overseas after undergrad so that my wife could finish her masters in her home country. While there, not wanting to waist any time, I took some intensive language courses and signed up for classes at the same university. Even so, the university is bilingual, and I don't speak both of the languages that courses are taught in, and as someone who has always relied heavily on lectures, my grades were not my customary A's and B's, but rather B's and C's with one lonely A. I admit that it was a risky move taking the chance by going to classes where I couldn't allways understand the lectures, but I stand by my work because of the difficulty of adapting to not one but two new languages. How should I go about explaining this to ADCOMS? My US undergrad grades are 3.8 overall, 3.5 science, but all my science prereqs from overseas are in the B and C range. I need to know how to communicate this to them. Is my personal statement the place? Or should I attach a letter to my secondaries?
