There's a thread for this. Its specifically labeled "What are my chances?". You'll get better responses there.

No, he's in the right forum, because the answer to his question is retake. Top 10 MBA = you can break 165 and get some cash at a good school.

Ok well, since he's in the right forum according to you Ill give him his chaces. Chances are slim. An MBA doesnt mean much. Its treated as a very soft factor in law school admissions. It doesnt matter that its "top 10".

I would retake only if you feel confident you can do better. Also, dont overlook schools that are in the region you want to work in. You can get money at some good regional schools. Of course you want to stay within the Tier 1. For instance, if you want to work in FL go to UF. You have a good shot. Going to a T14 in this case, while always good, doesnt matter that much since UF is strong in FL. Point is, dont worry so much about going to a top 14. Analyze where you want to study/work and go from there.

Good luck!

Out of curiosity, are you suggesting that the rigor of a Top 10 MBA program, independent of admission criteria, is such that any Top 10 MBA recipient could receive a 165?

I was kidding. Your prose hurts my brain.

But, OP's T14 chances would greatly improve is he/she locked down a 165+.
