Absent Addendum?

Postby Perplexed Penguin » Fri Sep 17, 2010 6:49 pm

Sorry for making a new topic on this, but I couldn't find a straight answer.

I was scheduled to take the LSAT in February of this past year. The day before the test my best friend was killed and even though I tried to get up to the take the LSAT, there was absolutely no way I could focus. I skipped the test and now have an absent on my record. Do I write an addendum for this? I really don't want to come off as looking for pity and at the same time I don't want to look irresponsible for skipping that test. Any advice would be great.
