Everything written in this thread applies to Columbia. They'll use your highest score.


I get that, but I was more wondering about what to write for the addendum since they strongly encourage you to write one if you've taken more than once. The consensus seems to be not to write one unless you have a huge score discrepancy and a compelling reason for the difference, and I have neither of those things.


So what's your confusion? Don't write an addendum.

They ask for one. I'd rather err on the side of following directions even if I feel like I have nothing of substance to say.

Just say you weren’t satisfied with your first score. No need to make up an excuse.

This is how I feel after six years of tweeting 897 times about the whole average myth and writing at least a dozen blogs on it, minus the last 4 seconds of the video. No one averages. Also, every time someone says schools average a baby kola bear gets lost in the wilderness.
