I went up 11 points, too. Which is worse -- not mentioning it in an addendum (therefore leading adcoms to think I blew it off the first time?) or offering a canned [though true] excuse, along the lines of "was ill the first time I took it"? (Because I don't really think that's legitimate. I scored what I scored.)I would just as soon not mention it but if it looks bad/worrying to have that much of a difference I'll throw in a few sentences.
Be honest and write an addendum telling them you got lucky the second time.
I went up by 10 points between my first and second LSAT. I did decide not to include an addendum (though sometimes I wonder if I should have, but I figure since I already submitted my apps I should just leave them as is). However, after I submitted my apps UC Davis actually requested an addendum from me.I would assume it does look a bit strange to have such a huge difference in your scores, so including an addendum might help explain to the admissions committee why you scored significantly better the second time around and therefore influence their final decision.
I have an 11 point jump on my lsat scores. I know I need to include an addendum, but where do I begin? I psyched myself out of it...Thanks for any help!
