they probably don't, especially now with decreased LSAT takers and USNWR's continued move away from score averaging.[/quote]

I've been wondering about this, too - I'm a 167/176 so will make quite a big difference to me. Why can't we all just take highest score....?[/quote]
I was 166/176 and got money. Though I did get in pretty late.[/quote]

Your late acceptance was, most probably, because of your GPA rather than your first LSAT score. So, your late acceptance is not indicative of them averaging scores.[/quote]

Better late than never, congrats! Thanks for the success story. I hope that everyone is right about highest score.

This is your LSN, right? http://lawschoolnumbers.com/izy223

I think you underperformed a tad. Did you negotiate with NYU? And what happened with CLS and Chicago?

Nice! Well done. Ha ok, I'll stop freaking out. I wasn't freaking out until I found this on the website... "they evaluate based on the average score in most cases."

honestly, you'd probably have a shot if they DID average b/c of that gpa. Though really, you have a shot at AnnBryce

As someone with a 172 (and well below 25% GPA), the NEW MEDIAN IS VERY RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS.

I would plan around the assumption that 171 is the median. 170 seems like an odd drop, particularly for a 173/169 split, and I really doubt we maintained 172. (not to mention, on the off-chance that the median somehow is 170, that's all the more reason for them to want to bump it back up to either 171 or 172 since I really doubt admissions would be content at keeping a 170 mid-point; planning around 171 seems like a fair bet.)

i thought someone in one of these threads who goes to NYU was told it was 171. Obviously, still unconfirmed, but I wonder if we can get more info from the 1Ls there...

we were never told anything officially during orientation. We only got the 25/75. I'm sure one of us could stop by wilf and get it though. might be an awkward conversation though.

Yeah, without knowing your GPA, I'd guess you have a decent shot (assuming it's not a really atrocious GPA). Drop in test takers and drop in apps from top performers = LSAT scores above or at median should grow in value relative to GPA. There are a zillion people with 3.7+ GPAs, accounting for all the schools in the U.S. plus grade inflation; not the case with good scores).
