Do these schools Average or Take the Highest LSAT Score?

Postby rwe23 » Mon Jun 28, 2010 12:01 pm

Columbia
NYU
Fordham
Cornell
Cardozo

Any information on any of these schools with how they look at retaking the LSAT. I know I want to practice in New York and study in New York, which is why this is the list of schools I am looking at.

Thanks

:lol:

rad law is right... you're going to have to track that info down on your own, I think. I will say that most schools will only count the highest score, as there is no strong incentive to average (since the 25th/75th percentiles are calculated based on the school's decision to average or not).

FWIW, I think the only school that I came across during my applications that averaged their scores was UWashington (including Cornell).

HTH...

You're welcome, most schools say they look at the high scores. Although they also include the statement that they do see all other scores and if there is a big difference 5+ you should write an addendum.
