OP is a pretty big splitter and a retake here would at best give her T14 at sticker options.
I'm under the impression that her 168 is from 4+ years ago and will expire too so she'll lose her safety net.
It doesn't hurt to retake in June just to cover bases but it's not like she's refusing to retake a 157 with a 3.9 GPA.
Except OP is
ignoring the abundance of information telling them that they are not going to get the outcome they want with their current options. And the OP is
making abysmally stupid decisions, like spending time now "pre-studying" for school as an excuse for not prepping for an LSAT retake.
The fact that the OP is a splitter is precisely why a retake is important. Given WashU's recent numbers bump, a 168/2.8 probably doesn't get a great offer. A 170+/2.8 probably gets full tuition at WashU, as well as a much wider range of opportunities. The OP can't reasonably consider most T14 options at this point, because the OP isn't even a splitter at most T14 schools. If the OP were to become a splitter, then they might be able to get some money, but at the very least, they'd have more leverage against T20 schools, which would actually get them the high-paying job they so clearly want
