Split addendum

Postby matt690 » Wed Dec 21, 2011 3:51 pm

Hi,

I am wondering if I should write an addendum, and if so, what I should say. I have a 151 on the lsat and a 3.9 gpa. First of all, I am not a great standardized test taker. I received a 1200 on the sat with a 4.0 high school gpa, and my high gpa at college shows that the sat was not truly reflective of my ability to succeed and that I am not a great standardized test taker. Someone suggested to write this and to offer to submit my sat scores? What would I write?

In addition, my family has been going through some tough financial difficulties over the past year (almost a foreclosure, spending cutbacks, stress, etc.). Although I am not looking for excuses, I partially attribute this huge lsat/gpa split to this, in addition to not being a good standardized test taker. Should I mention one or both of these things? Again, don't want to sound like I'm looking for excuses, just want to show that my lsat score may not be a true indication of who I am and my abilities.

I did retake the lsat; I do not believe I went up more than a few points, for the same reasons mentioned above. Thanks so much.

Sure, write it, but don't expect it to boost you into any schools you wouldn't have already gotten into with a 151.

Oh, good grief. OP, quit making duplicate topics. It's annoying (and against TLS policy, I think.)

Look at his post history. It consists pretty much solely of duplicate threads.
