LSAT addendum for transfer applications?

Postby Anonymous User » Thu May 18, 2017 4:13 pm

I am a reverse splitter with dramatic (15+ points) discrepancies in my LSAT scores due to a variety of reasons. I included a LSAT addendum when applying to law schools as a 0L. As a transfer applicant, do I need to include this same LSAT addendum?

No. LSAT has virtually zero influence on transfer applications

Wouldn't HYS want to know why I initially scored in the 140s? It's more than just lack of prep.

I transferred into a YSH school with a first LSAT that was 13 points below 25% percentile and a second LSAT 4 points below 25% percentile. Didn't mention the LSAT at all.

No. You have a year's worth of law school grades, which I presume are very strong: you wouldn't be applying to HYS otherwise.

Why on earth would you want to draw further attention to your stupid LSAT score? Don't needlessly draw their focus away from the strengths of your application.

LSAT has nothing to do with transfer apps and there's no reason to write an addendum
