I would spare some of your explanations as to why you chose to retake. This should be fairly obvious to adcomms given the schools that you are applying to. Instead, focus on why your highest score should be taken as indicative of your true ability.

What do you guys think? I talked to someone tonight who thought I didn't need to submit an addendum, and that I might just draw more attention to a low score if I send one in. But schools ask for one if you have a large gap between scores. I don't think it's a very original explanation, though...

I'd appreciate any feedback!!

What's the discrepancy between your highest and lowest score? Some deans say 4 points warrants an addendum, and I've read others who see a significant difference as being 7 or 8 points. Maybe you should check for info on each school you are considering? If you can't find anything, I'd side with caution and include one.

The discrepancy is over 10 points, so I'm guessing that counts as a large gap for almost all schools...
