Addendum needed for jump from 154 to 159?

Postby jengaroo » Thu Jan 14, 2010 4:07 pm

Hi All:

Do you think I need to attach an addendum explaining a score jump from 154 (60th) to 159 (78th)? Unfortunately, I had to work 80 hours a week during the first test in finance and was not able to study. I was working during the second test but had one month to put serious studying time in.

Thoughts?

No. No addendum is needed. Addendums are really for serious mitigating circumstances such as "my brother died the day before the LSAT" or "The proctor at my LSAT played punk music throughout the exam and I did enter a complaint about this with LSAC" as opposed to "I didn't have time to properly prepare because of [insert random reason here - work, UG classes, volunteer work, etc.]"

Definitely not. Let the score speak for itself.

IMHO, no. Not that big of a jump--seems to be within a score band. It's not a huge jump.
