third time's the charm?

Postby lolol10 » Tue Nov 16, 2010 1:08 pm

i am retaking for a third time in december hopefully scoring a 166-169. my previous tests were dismal (150s low 160s). i only have a 3.6 so i figure i have a decent shot at t 25, namely ND, Emory, IU-btown. will this third attempt be held against me? do i need an addendum?

Only write an addendum if the third score is substantially higher (6 points or more) than the two prior scores.

What are you practicing at? You should always expect a drop in score from PT's, For June my PT's were 165-166 range, and I got a 160. For October I was up to 168, and got a 161. Not saying you should expect a 7 or so point drop, but be realistic. Either way I suggest you write again, they give you the option to write 3 times, if you're not happy, then do it.

Really? My scenario fits this exactly. Does it depend on what school you're going to?
