I was thinking of doing a masters, and the grad programs only cared about one section, plus you could select which sittings you wanted to send (unlike LSAT where you have to send all). So like I took the GRE basically cold the first time as a diagnostic. I explain all of this in the addendum, and I'm confident that HLS would be understanding of this.
The thing that originally worried me was what you pointed out in (2). USNWR appears to indeed factor in GRE into their rankings, as I believe they did for Arizona last year. I am worried now that since I have to report an old GRE score, I would bring down HLS median GRE, which I think would negatively impact their ranking.
As you said, the big unknown is if an applicant with an LSAT and a GRE only has his/her LSAT score considered, or if HLS is obligated to report both to USNWR.
If it's the latter, then I feel compelled to retake the GRE so that I am no longer a LSAT/GRE splitter. Which is ironic since HLS instituted the GRE pilot program to relieve the burden of standardized test taking.
Did not mean to worry you again but these are my honest thoughts on the topic! Very frustrating I'm sure.
Edit: MS9 may have some insight here. You can try asking in his thread.
