Help proofreading a short paragraph for admissions?

<p>I'm writing a very short paragraph for admissions to one of the universities I'm applying to, in order to "explain" the low grades and poor comments on the report cards I'm sending in to them.</p>

<p>I want to make sure what I'm writing is okay, and doesn't sound off. Would anyone be willing to give it a quick read? If so I'll PM it to you.</p>

<p>It's not an essay or anything, just a brief "explanation" going into an email that will likely be printed with the report cards.</p>
