I am going to answer as if this is a serious question because I am bored.

Not to burst bubbles or anything, but I think you should think hard about your situation...

Language is very important in law, and the slightest change in structure or words can cause a major difference in a sentence. Granted that this is an online forum, not a legal memo, you could be typing this bad just because you were rushed or lack care. There are a few subtleties that hint that your grasp of the language is not very strong. I would take a few years improving your english, and in-turn probably your LSAT score.

An addenda is not needed for your 142->149.

LOL, a 7 pt increase in the 140's is nothing. And if I were you, I would not be highlighting my LSAT score. What URM are you?

I concur with all of this.

it is very difficult to get into law school with a 149
