Given the higher score rule, they have no reason to revoke based on a lower score.

Why don't you ask them first?

Or, go with the boilerplate TLS response: ED to UVA.

If you already got accepted, why would you retake...Move on and maybe prep for 1L by reading how to take exams books.

There are those that will matriculate based on whether they get a higher score. Ex: Student A got into a CCN school on a 4.0/170, but got rejected from HYS because the LSAT was too low. Student A, however, consistently scored 175+ in his PTs. If he can score a 175 on the June LSAT, he will retry for HYS next year. If it comes out about the same, he'll settle for CCN
