LSAT score increase addendum...with no reason

Postby thegreatk » Wed Jan 12, 2011 10:30 pm

Hey guys. My score increased 11 points, and I have no real explanation beside the fact that I felt immense panic and anxiety the first time around, and not the second. What should I mention in my addendum explaining the increase? Has anybody else had the same experience?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Tagged, because I have almost the same situation. I didn't send addendums with my apps.

I figured since I didn't really have a good reason, it was better just to leave it.

Unless the school says they average dont worry. The thought that say a 160 and a 171 would be taken and a school will say "Well, this applicant REALLY has a 165.5" is ridiculous.

I agree completely, except some schools like Davis and Loyola require an addendum if your increase is more than 4 or 5 points.

I had a 9 point increase. Didn't send an addendum because my only reason was that I didn't get enough sleep the night before...also sent out some apps before I knew how big the increase was.

I have an 11 point increase on my 2nd LSAT and I didn't write an addendum about it. But I should... I should write "My first LSAT was pre-TLS, and my second LSAT was post-TLS."
