Do I Need an LSAT Addendum?

Postby Gcl52 » Wed Jan 04, 2017 10:29 am

Hello!

I took the December LSAT and scored 8 points below my October 2015 LSAT. I am applying this cycle. Do I need to write an addendum to address the huge change in scores? I have read that you should write one if you have seen a large increase in scores but can't find anything on a decrease...Thanks!

Your profile suggests you already have applications out. Are you sending new applications?

I'd expect the eight point drop will make it hard to get positive movement from any of the waitlists, with or without an addendum. That said, sending an addendum only really brings further attention to it and I don't see how that can help.

What explanation would you give? (The answer in most cases is no.)
