Not really. I was working 65+ hours a week.

If you think you can do better, retake. An addendum isn't some magical talisman that make them sit up and go "Oh, well, in that case..."

The addendum for an LSAT is retaking it and doing significantly better.

This isn't true. An addendum can be used to explain any extraordinary circumstance. That said: the OP's situation definitely does not warrant an addendum. 40-50 hours per week? Who isn't doing that? You'll sound whiny.

I'm scratching my head as to what an "extraordinary circumstance" for the LSAT that you didn't somehow cancel on the spot would be.

Check out the "bad test taker" clause. That addendum requires proof of poor SAT performance as well, though.
