I took the LSAT three times: Oct 2011, Dec 2012, and June 2013. My scores were 155, 165, and 162 respectively. I'm wondering if I should write an addendum for the score drop from 165 to 162. I got shingles on the left side of face and left me with corneal scarring a week before the exam. I talked to an admissions officer about writing an addendum, but he said I should just take the LSAT again. I'm planning to take the LSAT again Feb 2014, but I'm going to submit my applications with the scores I already have. Since I'm taking the LSAT again, should I even bother writing an addendum? What would be the best course of action?

There is not much difference between the scores so I doubt it will be a big deal. If you dropped like 20 points you might need to make an excuse but most people score in a +/-3 band anyway.

Normally, I'd suggest writing a medical addendum. However, a 3-point drop is in the normal score band. So I don't think it will matter either way. If you do decide to write one, keep it short.
