There's another thread on this exact topic.
Maybe more.

All schools report the highest score to the ABA and USNWR, this is what matters.

NYU says that it averages, many other schools say that they "consider" all of the scores collectively but pretty much all schools seem to base their decisions off of the high score (including NYU).

This is nonsense. The fact that they report the highest score to the ABA and USNWR is completely independent from, and unrelated to, the question of how they view multiple scores in evaluating an applicaiton. If they say they average, they average.

Not really. Common knowledge is that schools are so concerned with LSAT and GPA largely because their medians in those two categories greatly affect their ranking. If they only have to report the high score, it would make sense that they are more inclined to consider the high score.

The real issue is for people who are borderline. Schools have so many applicants, why take a borderline person with 164/172 when you can just take someone with just a 172?

I know for a fact that not even HYS strictly average.
