Addendum for low score?
« on: October 20, 2007, 04:48:39 PM »
I did pretty bad on the Sept. LSAT, I am going to take it again, but I am still going to send in some apps to some schools before that, using my September score. So should I write an addendum explaining my reasons for getting such a score and suggesting they weigh other factors more heavily? Or is that a bad idea that sounds like I am making excuses?

I also did worse than I expected, and have the same question. I'm trying to think of how I can creatively spin it so as to avoid sounding whiny. Any ideas...?

Anna Ivey states in her book that she has never seen a good LSAT score addendum. Take it for what it's worth.

Doesn't she have an exception to that though?  I thought she said that if you have history of performing beyond standardized tests expectations, that you might be able to pull it off.

Yeah, you need to have a low SAT/high GPA combination to do that though.
