Thank you. I'm pretty sure I'm about maxed out at this point. So is your recommendation that I take what I have? It seems like your GPA helped get you some scholarship money.

How many years or months have you put into studying? What are you career goals?

LSAC no longer sets a limit on the number of LSATs you can take. They recently changed their policy.

I'd stick with your current offer. If you get into any of NU/Mich/wustl/Vandy it'll be very expensive. Retake is still an option.

I understand if you choose not to retake as it is certainly a risk, but three more points and you're in at nu with a modest scholarship

I've spent a year studying at this point and really think unless I got lucky, I won't get up to a 170. Is it possible? Yeah. Do I want to sink in all the time and who knows how many takes for that unlikely possibility? Not really. If I go with what I've got, should I let the school know? Possibly try to get fees covered or something?

What do you have to lose? Tell them you got more points. Honestly you can aply again next year early. Retake in september and see what happens. You will get better offers and maybe better mark on lsat.
