2 scores 7 pts apart-do I need to write an addendum?

Postby jtemp320 » Mon Nov 01, 2010 8:58 pm

Here is the truth -

In June I got a 167 with 10 wrong on LG. Basically - like many TLS'ers I put a lot of pressure on myself. I couldn't sleep the night before and was groggy and very anxious on test day - on the LG section I forgot to pull the pin on my watch, misdiagrammed a rule on the games (which I knew were my glaring weakness) and then had no idea how much time I had left to fix it so I left it alone and rushed through the whole rest of the section basically guessing (crazy I know). I knew things went bad but I didnt want to cancel and was actually pleasantly surprised to see a 167.

Between June and October I spent a lot more time on games - was a lot less nervous and got a 174. Now I have an average of 171 which I am fine with but I'd love a shot at Harvard/Columbia.

Should I write an addendum? I don't even know what I'd say...that I was nervous and tired and bombed a section?

Its just frustrating most of the T6 other then Chicago either average or are ambigious about it.

Thanks in advance for any advice
