I would role play the actual exam. Get into a small chair, bring your ziploc with all the stuff inside (ticket, pencils, erasers, etc) and take the test at exactly the same time the real thing would be. Practice that way and then crush the test on your next retake.
Did this current retake increase the quality of your cycle? I bet it did, and you can bet cash money that a good third retake will increase it again. You say you froze on the test. That means you can do better. That means you should take it again.
Edit: it seems like you're not living with the guy that put your test taking prep and test day mentality under duress. As it seems, you are getting by, and you can improve your score given you are working on the factors that were hurting it.
There is a possibility that I may be able to do better, but I will never know because I'm not retaking again. It's not financially feasible and it is too big of a risk for me to take without anything close to a guarantee of an improvement in score and prospects. I actually really love Wake Forest, but I just wanted to open myself up to input on W&L in light of my recent acceptance, and see if there was anything I was missing in comparing the two.
(Btw, I still live in the same place because I can't afford to move out on my own, but over time we have learned to coexist a little more peacefully. That, and I'm learning to sleep through noise out of pure necessity.)
