3 Takes and Downward Trend

Postby thegoodpart » Mon Oct 24, 2011 9:02 pm

Hey all..just got my Oct scores out and I am VERY upset with the outcome. I've taken the test 3 times with a downward trend. Though most schools say they take the highest score, I have no doubt that they will question the trend. Should I write an addendum, though I have no compelling reason for score decrease, just test day jitters?

If you've got no compelling reason for the score decrease, I don't know what you'd say in an addendum. If that's the case, I wouldn't recommend one.

I feel for you. PTing 165-168...-10 on the real thing. It sucks.

What exactly would you say? If you have no extenuating reason, there is nothing to explain to them. Addenda are to fill in holes in your application that will inevitably raise questions.
