I'm no expert but I don't think there's any reason to write an addendum for that, especially there's no explanation or circumstance behind it. Considering they've been doing this for years I'm sure they're very well trained to look for upward GPA trends and I don't think they're looking for an weak explanation because it pretty much explains itself. But what do I know?
That was my thought process, especially since they really seem to emphasize looking at the whole application and I don't think I'm an auto-reject. But the conventional wisdom on this site generally seems to follow the 'better safe than sorry' logic.
I'm already including an LSAT addendum (I'm a retake that gained 8 pts)
