Nyu is infamous for averaging LSATs
Yeah, a good amount people ive seen with solid number combos that get wl'd tend to be retakes with low scores in the past. Obviously it matters less if your retaking a 171 for a 175, or if you jumped from a 165 to a 180. But if you're going 163->170 you definitely have something keeping you a step below a person with a solid 170 or even a single 169.
Hmm. I went 163->174. Trying to think of something to write for an addendum to NYU. Ideas to explain the 163?
Things during 163 not during the 174:
-did not sleep well
-tiny arm-desk thing
-needed to piss pretty badly in the middle of the third section (not experimental apparently)
-~2 year span in between LSATs (guess I studied more the second time)
None of those really seem like a good reason...
My first score was lower than your first, but our retakes are the same. I got into NYU, here is my addendum, which seems to have worked so far except for with Harvard...
"Unfortunately, during the June 2010 LSAT, I let my nerves disrupt my concentration, which negatively affected my score. Since my score of XXX was below my expected testing abilities I decided to retake it in October 2010. I entered the October test with a different mindset, which I believe is reflected in my new score of a 174. Although both scores are shown on my report, I respectfully ask you to consider the 174 as indicative of my true abilities."
Hope that helped!
