This close, if you're PTing over your target, I recommend slowing down a bit at this point. If you're not, then keep going as usual, but if you can rest up and just use this time to stay sharp, I think you'll be in great shape come test day.
What qualifies as PTing over the target? I'm shooting for 175+, and last 10 have been:
PT 43, 174
PT 44, 174
PT 46, 176
PT 54, 177
PT 60, 176
PT 61, 180
PT 62, 175
PT 63, 173
PT 64, 178
PT 59, 175
All fresh tests that I've never seen before. So, I get my target about half the time, but I've fallen below 175 several times. I just can't seem to improve at all anymore. I've been roughly in this range the whole time I've been studying.
I know you scored a 179 on your retake. Were you scoring that consistently, or were you falling below on some?
You're within your score band. I'd suggest slowing down a bit and PT less frequently, and maybe take the time to instead go over some systematic things (do some drilling and talk yourself through your method over and over again). Take a couple more (two weeks left or one?), but I'd say no more than 2/3 a week, and definitely take the day before the test off/light. You're scoring close to where you want... Now's the time to make sure you're mentally prepared for test day, rather than just PT after PT.

Shit no. That sounds awful. Maybe, MAYBE on Saturday, but I think the time would be best served doing what I said above.
And good luck guys. You've prepped well, you know this stuff cold... just be ready and come test day knock it cold. I'm cheering for you. In a few weeks all you'll have to worry about is your PS and getting your rec letters.
