There's a pretty huge difference between a 160 and (if you think you can get it) 165 if you already have a 3.76 GPA.

Check out the difference here: http://www.lawschoolpredictor.com/wp-co ... ograms.htm

try 160/3.76 then change the LSAT score to 165. Huge.

I would definitely retake. How many times have you taken it?

do I apply to all the schools I want and say another lsat will be coming? everything is all set, minus a score that reflects my true abilities

Somebody should confirm this, but I heard schools put your file in the bottom of the pile based on your previous score if you tell them to wait on a future score. Have you considered applying next cycle?
