Addendum Question
« on: September 23, 2012, 12:40:35 PM »
My numbers are GPA 3.55, LSAT 169. I took a lot of summer courses (and regular courses) because I changed my major towards the end of my college years. Should I write an addendum explaining my heavy load of courses?

Well, if you have extra issues that you feel the need to write down, you could write one but with such a good LSAT score and GPA I'd say you can easily get into law school.

If you are applying for several "reach" schools, I guess you may need to throw a hail mary, but it generally isn't a good idea to say, "My GPA goes down when I'm under pressure!" in order to get into law school.   A better approach, in my opinion, is to point out a struggle you overcame.
