Honestly, I can't. I was scoring between 168-174 on PEs, I studied all summer, and I'm a philosophy major with a knack for logic. Nonetheless, I froze up during the test. I suck at standardized tests. I'm afraid if I retake it I will do poorly again and truly cement myself at that percentile
If it's your only score, you're already "cemented" at that percentage. No one will care about your addendum. I know schools always say that they review everything holistically and look at everyone as unique, but schools only do that in so far as it won't harm their medians. They're looking out for their interests, not yours.
"I suck at standardized tests, but I'm actually really smart" is also one of the most common excuses, I'm sure. It's also probably not true in your case. If you're capable of getting a 4.0 in college, where you presumably took many tests and didn't freeze up, you're more than capable of getting a decent LSAT score. Stop being lazy.
I got into UCLA this cycle with a 3.3. Your GPA is totally fine. What's holding you back is your LSAT.

It could get you into UCLA with $$ off the WL this cycle
I'm on the quarter system which royally sucks as an undergrad. I would have to take the October LSAT again. Womp womp.
You can't miss a day of class to take the LSAT? Why?
