Addendum concerning LSAT score discrepancy
In October of 2008, I took the LSAT for the first time. On the day of the test, I had a cold and headache, which I believe prevented me from performing to my full potential. However, I did not cancel my score, because I thought I had still done well. I was pleased with my score of 170, but my practice tests indicated that I could do even better. I took the LSAT again in June, 2009, and I believe this second score of 177 is a better reflection of my true abilities.
I know many people advised against providing an addendum at all, when both scores are so high, but I spoke to a number of adcom representatives at a law school fair and every one of them told me to submit an addendum so they could understand the significant increase in my score. Thanks!
