Addendum for jump in LSAT?

Postby lawgirl10 » Fri Jan 07, 2011 12:18 pm

I took the LSAT in Oct 09 and got a 153. I studied harder and just got a 165 in December. Do you think that I should include an addendum? There's really no 'unique' reason for the jump. Just realized how much i wanted it and that I needed to work harder. Is that self-explanatory?

i thinkj with a 12 point jump you need to explain it. You can chalk your 153 to test day anxiety issues, vowing to overcome this, and became more determined to dominate the test, made the lsat your top and secondary priority in your life for a few months, and were justified in doing so with a 12 point jump.

what about a 157/164/167(dec) ? I have almost all my apps already in/complete and have a legit excuse for the first one I took over a year ago.

if you have a legit excuse you could write one to explain it. But you dont need to explain your 164-167 jump.

I broke 2 bones in my face 3 weeks before the test and was pretty jacked up, stopped studying but still took the test. Is that legit?

Yes, if you write it up decent, I'd say that could work.
