Do I need to write an LSAT addendum?

I unfortunately took the LSAT 4 times, 166, 165, 169, and FINALLY a 176.

Should I write an addendum? I don’t even know what to say other than the truth, I set a goal, I didn’t reach my goal so I kept working until I met it. That doesn’t sound very compelling though?

    honestly since your track record shows you've been scoring well overall i wouldn't. I advised my friend (who recently began IL at ucla law) who first scored a 159 to write one since he's had a demonstrated history with test anxiety.

    That's a very impressive work ethic. I personally don't think that this is a silly reason to write an addendum, but the scores kind of speak for themselves. They won't question that you improved naturally and I'm sure that kind of improvement is encouraged.

    Former admissions officer here. Congratulations on finally achieving a very impressive result! Since there is a 10-point difference between your highest and lowest score, and you took the exam four times, a concise and factual LSAT addendum could be appropriate. You don't have to go into detail about how you prepared for each exam or felt any anxiety. Good luck!

    Congrats!! I feel like im on a similar trajectory lol. 165 in June 169 August and just took September and felt like I did slightly better. Would you mind sharing how you improved on RC, any breakthroughs you had? That's where i'm struggling the most! Good luck

    Hi Steven,

    Honestly RC and LG carried me through this whole process. My trouble area was LR, so I might not be a good source on RC improvement. I will say that low res summaries, letting main points light the way and keeping a close eye for any small indicator of author opinion were all extremely helpful.
