LSAT addendum advice

Postby uvandy » Sun Jan 19, 2014 1:16 pm

I am applying to my dream school despite my score being 10 points below their median (got a fee waiver!). I understand my chances are a big fat zero. There are no legitimate excuses for my LSAT performance, so the addendum would emphasize how my softs prepared me to succeed in law school. Should I even bother with this, or would it bring too much attention to my score? TIA.

Honestly, they are going to see your LSAT whether you decide to draw attention to it or not. If it is a glaring weakness in your application and you feel like you have a good explanation to why you did bad, you should definitely address it. Applying to a reach school, any additional evidence that you are more than a number can only help.

¡buena suerte! :lol:

Retake, and apply again next year. Unless those softs include rescuing the president's daughters from smugglers, you are throwing away your LSAC report fee.
