Should I write an LSAT addenda?

Postby DreamLaw » Mon Nov 08, 2010 2:33 pm

Hey everyone,

I took the LSAT for the first time in October 2010 and scored a 152. This was a complete shock since I was scoring in the high 160's to low 170's after months of studying. The night before the exam I did experience a panic attack which only lead me to sleep 3 hours. My lack of sleep made me unable to fully concentrate during the test. Anyways, I will be re-taking in December. Should i write an addenda to explain my score, or will admissions just look at the higher score once i re-take? Thank you.

You want to write an addendum talking about a score on a test that you have not even taken yet...

cant an addendum be written as an explanation for any low score? Whether i get higher or not next time, I would have liked my low performance on this test to be explained. Or are they only written when one has 2 scores?

I think the poster was pointing out that you don't know that you'll do better next time.
