Do I need a LSATAddendum?

Postby Aifamume » Thu Jan 01, 2015 3:42 pm

I've taken the LSAT twice: 171 & 175.

I was one of the first students to be seated for my first LSAT. As everyone knows, once you're seated, you cannot leave until the test has begun. However, in this instance the school had overbooked resulting in a lack of seats for the students. It took a while for this to sort out, and we didn't begin the test until 10:33. This is about 15 minutes before the break should have been, and I wasn't alone in needing to relieve myself. I was seventh in line to go to the bathroom. Of the 10 questions I missed, 7 of them were on this first section.

Is that worth an addendum? I'm worried that this might seem silly or made-up, even though it is the truth. Also, is a four-point difference worth an addendum?

Don't write an addendum. Especially for only a 4 point jump.
You'll be judged on your 175.

Chiming in to say they are deff right and it would be absurd to write.

I'm also wondering if I should write one or if it would be a waste of time for me and adcomms. I had a nine point increase from Sep to Dec and only reason for lower Sep score was that I had a cold/flu and was just really exhausted during last two sections.

That's what I thought, but my fiance thought I should get another opinion :)

Better safe than sorry, your fiance is wise. I wouldn't write it if I were you.
