Retake in December, break 170 and apply next cycle.
A Jan 170+ is better than an early 167 and if you can't break 170 after studying for 11 months on a fourth take then you're never going to anyway.
Well, that's a question for post-December 2013 LSAT. I have major issues with stress. In October's test, I had to guess on ~10 questions and presumably missed them all. If the same thing happens in December 2013 it wouldn't be true if I walked away saying "I can't do better".
Your point is noted though.
What do you mean by major issues with stress? An anxiety disorder? If so, you seriously might want to consider some kind of treatment and anti-anxiety medication. I hate to promote anything for the pharmaceutical industry, but I assure you that preparing for and taking non-YHS law school exams will be far more stressful than the LSAT.
If you're going to retake the LSAT in December, you need to address this stress/anxiety issue first.
Food for thought, but my increase in score is also explained by more and better prep and enhanced reading comprehension skills.
I think the underlying issue is that in school you're not going to have 5 cracks at an exam. You will have one, and it will be stressful, and if you fuck it up that will suck.
Back on topic: talk to people from Cornell. If you can survive Ithaca cold and want NY, it seems like a good option if your adverse to waiting another year.
If not, and you are confident you can improve in Dec apply next cycle. If you're not confident, take the best offer you get and don't look back.
