scored 159 on june. looking for 160+ (a one point increase would suffice).

Prepping at 160

I would think most ppl agree if you are only prepping at 1 point above your LSAT score, retaking could be bad.

No TTT that takes a 160 cares about retakes so it doesn't really matter.

OP have you studied enough yet. Or are you doing almost all your studying for the LSAT from now til the test?

Also WTF are you prepping so much for interviews? I went on technical interviews where you had to actually know things, and it doesn't take days. Do a PT every day from now til the test.

It wouldn't look that great to get a 159 then a 157 would it? IMO if 1 point will really help you, it should help you even more to take Dec and get 2 or 3 points higher. App might be in later but if the points are what is key...

Since I don't know how much you've studied until now, I don't know what to tell you but I would NOT suggest taking 2 PTs a day. It probably won't be accurate prep. Why not try doing 3 PTs a week with 2 sections in the days in between PTs and reviewing?

It wouldn't look great but do you think, any school that takes a 159 really gives a shit?
