If transfering with great 1L grades, is LSAT addendum needed?

Transfer LSAT Addendum????

Postby Hudsonbayco » Wed Nov 19, 2014 1:46 pm

Data is approximate for privacy. I want to ask those who recently transferred while it is fresh in their mind--Do you need/ recommend adding an addendum explaining poor LSAT score if transferring with amazing 1L grades? Or is it assumed your 1L grades automatically dismiss the LSAT's attempt to predict your law school performance?

Data "took a few years off of school, looking to transfer to finish, top 20 law school, in top 5 percent rank in grades, LSAT 159"

they don't care about your LSAT or whatever. Purely based on your 1L grades and the perceived quality of your original school.
