Writing an Addendum

Postby zjdj16 » Sun Jan 24, 2010 1:07 pm

I have never done well on standardized tests in the past put my GPA has always been great. In high school, I graduated with a 4.00 but only with a 22 ACT and in college, I am graduating with a 3.92 but only a 148 LSAT. I am looking for suggestions on how to convey the idea that my performance on the LSAT is not a accurate portray of my performance in the classroom.

I would personally study more for the LSAT and re-take. With your GPA you have a chance at T14 if you work to pull up your LSAT score. Otherwise you are going to be looking at T4 schools.

Retake. You can write an addendum if you want. However, like other poster said, you are looking at t4. Perhaps a few in the very bottom of the t2. If URM and then you'd prob get into a few t2 schools, but the $ wouldn't be great... nor would the job prospects.

What is comes down to is that schools care massively about LSAT. An addendum is not going to change that. Good luck!
