Bump. I also had a significant jump for almost exactly the same reasons, I'd be interested in some feedback as well...

I had a smaller, lower bump (honestly can't remember, but maybe 163-170). I just let the numbers speak for themselves. Since LS really only care about USNWR numbers (the highest) I don't see a reason to just cloud up the process and make excuses.

However, if you have an actual, medical excuse that pretty much should invalidate your first score (i.e. you started vomiting halfway through the last section and forgot to cancel) you should give it, otherwise they will figure out that you studied more and did better.
