From what I've seen on TLS and LSN, law schools typically eschew younger candidates (probably due to perceived lack of maturity/perspective). Best case scenario with your application would be that an Add Comm does not notice your age, and the worst case would be if they do.
With your numbers, you stand a very good shot at a top program. No need to sabotage your chances with an unnecessary addendum.
I feel that the worse case scenario is likely since they will see less grades on my transcript. Assuming they will certainly notice that, do you still advice against the addendum?
