just want to know my chances at the following schools:

NYU
Columbia
Chicago


WL/Out or Out at Columbia and Chicago.

You'd have a pretty reasonable shot at NYU, but they might care that you took the LSAT three times. They average when the difference is fewer than 6 points; not sure how they treat three-peaters. 50/50 there.

This is false. Georgetown takes the highest score.

(And that's even an outdated list -- almost everyone takes the higher score nowadays).

Your numbers just might not have been strong enough.

Yeah, I wouldn't have gotten in Georgetown if they averaged.

Wrong about georgetown. I would have gotten in if they did not average. (took 3 times, had 5+ pt. bump btw 2nd and 3rd take). However, I bet that if I would have included an addendum, they would have taken the higher score and let me in.

Multiple LSAT scores: Averaged but an admissions member said that they take the highest score if there is a 5 point discrepancy. More likely to consider a higher LSAT score if the LSAT is only taken twice.

So basically they will average if your scores are within the (combined) margin of error, aka your score band, which actually makes a lot of sense.

I stand corrected on Georgetown's averaging policies, especially when it comes to three-time takers, it seems.

From the GULC Web site:

"For reporting purposes, Georgetown adheres to the ABA policy of reporting the higher LSAT score. For evaluation purposes, the Georgetown Admissions Committee typically averages LSAT scores. Georgetown may consider the higher LSAT score if you have only taken the LSAT twice. Please address any mitigating circumstances you feel the Admissions Committee should consider."
