all (s)he needs to do is score 15-20+ points higher, write an addendum and all will be forgiven.

two scores in the 140's could make 1 score in the 160's an unlikely scenario.

Do you really think that a school would completely ignore 2 scores in the 140s just because you had one score of 158? Even if they said they'd take the highest score, I don't really think they will.

yeah, I think so.  that's a big jump.  it could work wonders with the right addendum.

I want to add, especially as someone who did do a retake, that I think the OP can make a big improvement, just maybe not 20 points, which would be a lot for anyone.  I don't, however, think that a huge improvement will forgive everything.  A lot of schools state that they average, and they do, no matter what the scores.

ok, don't apply to those schools.  i don't think it's that difficult to make a 20 point jump if you're on the low end (120-135).

I'll agree with that.  If you're at 120-130, you're missing the basics, which means you don't need to pick up on anything too complex to gain maybe 15-20 points or so.

Watch out sweetie.  I had a very low LSAT, took it again and only got 2 points higher (after I paid $$$ for a course and a ignorant private tutor).  Remember that if schools average the scores it's divisible by 3 (if you retake it) and not 2.  Which basically means that you will have to do extremely well on the next one.  I'm riding on my work/community service and GPA.   I agree that an addendum is in order.

Having to average ba-lows.  You watch people with your higher score get into schools you can't get into with your averaged score, and you know you're just as capable on the lsat as they are.

It's no mystery why I'm headed to Nova, and got a scholarship at Pitt, while waitlisted at Rutgers and rejected at Temple.
