Does HLS average LSAT scores?

I know this question has been asked before, but the thread is pretty dated now. Does Harvard average LSAT scores? I am so doomed if they do. I got a 167 first time, canceled second time, and a 176 third time.

Nobody just averages LSAT scores. Yale, maybe, and only as a consequence of their wacky faculty review system, takes into account scores besides one's highest. The highest score is the one that matters for most purposes.

If they don't average LSAT, does the fact that you have retakes hurt your application?

No. Unless maybe if you have an eyebrow-raising number of retakes, like, I dunno, at least 4 scores? No adcom's going to bat an eyelash at 2 scores, especially with the 2 scores being a 167 and a 176.
