This might be a bad premise to base your addendum on. Law school also requires a mastery of the English language. I think bringing attention to that would be a bad idea. Since English is necessary in law schools, you are tacitly admitting that you will have shortcomings in law school as well. I'd just live with your score, or find a different reason to write an addendum.

Hmm, that's interesting. I guess you proved that you can handle the English language in an academic setting with that GPA, but I would still be wary of admitting a pretty fundamental flaw that you have to the adcoms. If I were you I would just live with the score and not bring that up. You should still get into some very good schools.

Do not add the second part about canceling. That just sounds like you have an excuse for every bad outcome. Cancel scores are fine. There is no need to explain, it happens.

An LSAT Addendum is good, but as the poster above said, do not focus it on "mastering the English language."

Instead, focus it more on how you are not good at taking standardized tests. If possible, include your SAT score, and how you did very well in undergrad, despite the SAT score, and how you expect to do very well in law school, despite the LSAT.

Ya I was worried about that too. I might just have to go the standardized tests route or scrap it all together. Anyways, thanks for the input to both of you, I appreciate it.
