Multiple LSAT Scores

Postby hoyas2010 » Sat Apr 03, 2010 4:02 pm

I am just checking to see if any of you are familiar with how the following schools handle multiple LSAT scores. I scored 162 the first time and 168 the second (the latter being the average of my prep tests). If you have personal experience, or have any insight, I'd really appreciate it.

Vanderbilt
UCLA
USC
Cornell
UMich
Duke
Penn

Vanderbilt looks at both LSAT scores as well as the average score.
UCLA takes the highest score.
Cornell considers the higher score if at least three points higher.
Michigan looks at all LSAT scores & expects an explanation for signifigant variations.

Submit an addendum to each application explaining the jump in your score (especially if the first one was due to an incident during the test or personal circumstances). Given that you had a 6-point jump in 160s, I'd call that a pretty significant change--a school might ignore the lower score entirely given your improvement. I think when I e-mailed schools before my cycle, they said that ~5-6 point jumps was when they stopped averaging.
