UW's my super reach first choice as well, but the fact that they average LSAT scores will make it a super duper reach for me.
I have a (completely unfounded) belief that they changed this policy. They just got a new dean, so I expect (/hope) they drop this rank-killing policy. As far as I know, no one has talked with admissions about this during our cycle. Has anyone heard anything new?
I'll have a pretty good shot at admission if they take my highest score. If they average... I'll find that little rejection letter in the mail....
I also feel like there might be some changes in the works, though I have nothing really to back that up with. In addition to the new dean there is also a new director of admissions, and from looking at what Dean Testy did at Seattle U and also from some of the things she has said about her goals at UW, I would not be surprised to see some significant changes in admissions policies aimed at making UW more competitive in the US News rankings game.
It probably isn't the way it should be in an ideal world, but given the importance of rankings to law schools, a major duty of the dean of every law school except for Yale is to maintain and improve the schools ranking, and I think with Testy we have someone who will be aggressive in that regard. When she was hired she said that UW should have a top 10 law school, and that she intends to move it in that direction. This seems overly optimistic to me, but I hope she is right and I hope she follows through.
