Addendum for 3rd LSAT?

Postby mtyler19 » Wed Oct 26, 2011 11:22 am

I hate even mentioning my 1st scores but 149,156, now a 162. Should I write an addendum? I did last cycle for the 7 point jump, but do I need to explain a 3rd retake that still isn't even good? Or why, though still dismal, there was a 6 point increase?

unless you have a really crazy reason, no. I jumped 10 points and don't have an addendum. I just studied harder.

My scores are::: [Cancel, 161, 159]. Slightly different situation than the gents above me, since I actually went down in score.
However, I have a demonstrable and verifiable history of low test scores/high performance in school (standardized testing in public school, SAT).

Should I write an addendum? If so, how should I go about furnishing test results - especially for those old ones from high school?

Would appreciate a well-reasoned opinion on this soon, thanks.

We have similar jumps (13 for me) and I was thinking of writing an addendum. I was working overtime hours before June which hurt my ability to study, would that be a good basis for an addendum? Or should I not bother?
