LSAT Increase Addendum (+10 points)

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Nov 16, 2013 1:24 am

Hi guys!

Please take a look at my addendum - any feedback is welcome!!!
Thank you =)

Score went up from 162 to 172

------------
I would like to take this opportunity to explain why I believe my December 2012 LSAT score is more reflective of my academic abilities than my October 2012 score.

On the morning of the October exam, I had severe flu symptoms including chills, headache and a runny nose. Even though my condition worsened during the exam and I was constantly distracted, I did my best to focus on the exam.

When I saw my LSAT score, I realized I had underestimated the effect that the flu had on my performance on the exam; I took the LSAT again in December 2012. I believe the new score is more representative of my abilities and ask that these circumstances be taken into consideration when evaluating my multiple LSAT scores.

First, congratulations on both your increase and your final score. Second, I don't know that any LSAT increase really demands an addendum, much less a ten-point improvement.

I don't think very many people "fluke" into a 172, so the adcomms will probably just assume that October was a "bad day" for whatever reason, and/or that you came to grips with part of the test that you'd been having problems with.

Congrats on the new score!

I think this is fine. It is short, sweet, and to the point. My only changes would be...

"When I saw my October 2012 LSAT score, I realized I had underestimated the effect that the flu had on my performance on the exam. I took the LSAT again in December 2012 and managed to perform significantly better . I believe..."
