Congrats on the improvement!
I have a 10+ difference, and although I don't think the scores are necessarily averaged, I do think the lower score has hurt me a little.

LSP was actually pessimistic for me; I was WL'ed at the only "Weak Consider" to which I applied, and In at all the "Considers" (some with $$).

Of course I was half-joking. But my personal example does go to show that, at least in my case, LSP is inaccurate. thereby, my ultimate point was that it is hardly an infallible predictor.


Less than five percent /= no chance in hell.

LSP said I was a deny at wake, but I was accepted yesterday

It is a great tool for helping manage expectations, but it shouldn't be the sole basis on which anyone makes their decisions about where to apply
