Not considering a retake, just didn't make a ton of sense given my situation (the employment I would have been seeking would have required a 2-3 year commitment, 170 could have expired by the time I would have gotten around to applying again).

and the F stands for Fee Waiver. Your set of numbers can get you a lot of those if you do the leg work.

Apply, retake in June and if you do well, reapply.

if you've been PTing aroung mid 170s, why don't you just retake in Feb? if you score high, maybe it'll help you get in from WL this year or you can always reapply next year with the score

I'd say deposit at Penn, retake in June.
