Is there a stigma attached to taking the LSAT 4 times?

Assume the highest score is a 170+; if there is such a stigma, how much does it impact your chances for admission at a school where you are above their median?

As long as you haven't taken the LSAT more than 3 times in 5 years, you're fine.

He was probably (mistakenly) referring to the rule about taking it a maximum of three times in 2 years.
