LSAT Addendum?

Postby DoYouEvenTLS » Sat Nov 05, 2016 12:53 pm

Long story short, took the December 2015 LSAT and scored just under 150 due to my dog's death leading up to the exam. Decided to take the LSAT again in September 2016, improved by ~10 points.

Should I write an addendum addressing the lower score and how the death hindered my abilities?

Thank you for the timely response. May I ask why?
Is this type of addendum viewed negatively by adcomms?

LSAT addenda are never necessary. Your highest score will be the one considered.

Also, with all due respect, it's not a very strong excuse.

You improved! No need to draw attention to your low score.
