Wouldn’t EDing increase my chance of acceptance?

Probably not. It does increase your chances of getting milked for a quarter-million dollars, though, if you're into that.

I asked schools about this at the Chicago Forum last week and they all said the only time they'd want an addendum is if something worth writing about happened in your life that made you retake the LSAT and score significantly better. They all explicitly said not studying for the first take, then studying for the 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th take would not be considered something worth writing about. One adcom told me that if you cant write a 2 page addendum about your reason for retaking then don't even try.

Great! Thank you! I guess I should work harder for my next test and let my score explains it
