(The only circumstance I can think of where an addendum for a lower LSAT might possibly be useful is if you're someone who has a demonstrated history of low standardized test scores, paired with academic excellence in every other context, and ideally some kind of diagnosed issue that helps explain the disparity, and you've taken the LSAT enough times to be certain that you've reached your max, and you want to explain all that. It might not make any difference, but I can understand offering the explanation. Otherwise a lower LSAT is just a lower LSAT. An addendum is more relevant for someone wanting to explain a poor UGPA since you can't go back and redo that. So if you'd had the neurological issues and/or pregnancy during college and wanted to explain a GPA that way, sure. It doesn't work the same for the LSAT because, as cav points out, you can always retake it.)

I know this isn't what you came to ask, but I gotta say this is a very shortsighted view of things. A higher LSAT score will get you better scholarships and/or admission to a better school, which will long term benefit your career. If this is the real reason. If it isn't, then don't write an addendum.

This is incredibly pennywise and pound foolish. A few extra points could be worth tens of thousands of dollars in scholarship money, or even millions of lifetime earnings. Don't forego a proper score over a few hundred bucks, even if it means waiting another year. Law school will still be there next year.
