Statement of Purpose question

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone.


I am applying for master programs in Biology and last semester (spring of 2014) my GPA went down from 3.42 to 3.32. I got a C in Biostat, B- in Metaphysics and B- in Neurobiology. This happened because i had serious family related problems (my parents divorced a few weeks before my finals, so I almost failed my classes, but I was able to get an A- in Immuno and B in Physics). My question is do I need to explain that I got those grades because of the divorce of my parents?


also, should I include in my statement of purpose that I was discriminated by some of my professors (because I am not of Russian ethnicity) at my previous university in Russia before transferring to a US college (like asking for a bribe and lowering my grade up to one point)?  


thanks in Advance
