I second this. I got a terrible score on my first MGRE. One of my recommenders offered to write in the rec that my score in no way reflected my abilities, I have a ton of potential, etc. I got my second score back, which was still not great, but acceptable and my prof said it was no longer necessary to add that to the letter. Only have your profs write it if the score is SUPER low - most grad schools understand that the MGRE is complete and utter BS in regards to research abilities and that moderately low to middling scores are no big deal.
