Should I include an addendum explaining low LSAT scores?

Postby GreatNorth87 » Sun Jan 15, 2012 2:13 pm


I am ranked at the top of my class and am looking to transfer from a 3rd tier school. I did well in the classroom during both undergrad and my first semester of law school, however my LSAT score leaves something to be desired. Is it necessary/pertinent to attach an addendum explaining that my LSAT score is not indicative of my abilities, or is that implied by the fact that I am applying to transfer with high marks?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

It's implied. The LSAT is just used as a predictor for how well you'll do in law school. Once you have LS grades it becomes completely irrelevant, so no addendum is necessary. Congrats and good luck!
