Just gauging general opinions on this. For me anything below 170 is going to cost me another 200 bucks and painful hours studying.

171 or 172-ish. was coming into the test realistically expecting high 160s but felt great until the 5th section (LG) where I had to edumacated guess the last 3. i really thought i was on pace for a mid-170.

i think i'll do well enough to get into my target school but review a few times a week to keep my skills sharp until I get my score. anyone know if you can grub for more scholarship money if you get a higher score after you've been accepted/waitlisted?

Yup. Plenty of threads on this. The basic hierarchy goes:

Admission+$$ at a higher ranked school
Admission+$$ at a peer school/admission to a higher ranked school
Admission+$$ at a lower ranked school

Like I said, there are threads on the best way tactfully to use this to your advantage in the scholarship negotiation process
