LSAT ADDENDUM Is this good?

Postby rmw308 » Mon Nov 08, 2010 2:32 pm

Not really sure proper etiquette on writing Addendums. I "misbubbled" my 2nd LSAT, please let me know if this is appropriate.

I would like to address my second LSAT score, administered October 9th, 2010.

After receiving a 164 on the June 2010 LSAT, I opted to take the exam again, in an effort to improve my chances for admission into _________. After studying for months, I went into the October exam very confident that I would increase my score.

To my great dismay, I received a 160 on the exam. After reviewing my Scantron, I was devastated to find that I mis-bubbled a large portion of the second section, resulting in an excess of incorrect answers. Distraught, I must move forward confident in my original score of 164.

Please disregard the October exam, as it is not at all representative of my ability to succeed at a prestigious institution such as the ____________.

Redo... not doing it for you... Last line is terrible.
"distraught"? they dont care how you feel about it...

In fact rework the whole thing. Easy- "On the October Lsat I misbubbled, my June LSAT is more representative of my abilities"

Agree with 4for44. Don't mention being distraught. You very well may have been, but including it here it makes you sound like a drama queen. An LSAT score addendum is not about your emotional reactions.

What would your score have been if you hadn't misbubbled? Should be easy enough to figure out.

I would say something like:
My original score on the [test date 1] LSAT was 164. I retook it on [test date 2]. Unfortunately, I [entered two answers on one line on the answer sheet/whatever your problem was] in the [RC/LG/LR] section, causing me to misbubble [X] questions, and what would have been a 17x ended up a 160. I feel that while a 164 is still not entirely indicative of my abilities, it is in my best interest to proceed with the application process.

On the other hand, If the misbubbling only caused you to lose 4-6 points, I'm not sure it's worthy of an addendum.

Also, I don't have one in front of me to check, but are the answer sheets actually Scantron brand? If not, don't call it that; call it the answer sheet.
