When I took the LSAT on December 12, 2010 I had been studying for four months. I had taken many full length practice tests and was very familiar with the test and my average performance. My average test score was 167, never scoring below a 160. On the day of the December test I did not perform my best, nor even my average. Because my score was such an outlier, I decided to retake. With more studying my average practice score rose to above 170. I am confident about my February score and believe that it should be taken into consideration as a more true representation of my LSAT abilities.
I certainly do have excuses (I was going through a break up, I hadn't slept, my hotel room didn't have heat), but I thought this got to the heart of the issue better- that I am a 167+ rather than a 157. What do you think?

I mean...you can't expect them to accept you prior to the Feb score ..right?
Write the score improvement addendum (detailing the test-fail reasons you mentioned) when you actually have the # increase.

Do not mention practice tests in the least. There is no way for the schools to verify anything you say about practice tests.
