170 in June --> 173 in October. Worth another shot in Dec.?

Postby RhymesLikeDimes » Mon Oct 28, 2013 9:00 pm

3.58 GPA (I was Biochem/Pre-med, but I doubt that'll do much for me), with standard softs.

I am resigned to missing out on HYS, but 3.58/173 is right on the borderline for Columbia. Another point pretty much locks me in.

I was consistently 175-180 on PTs leading up to both tests. In June I was a nervous wreck, and went 0/8 on my 50/50 Q's. In October, I felt great on test day, but wasn't able to do much prep in the weeks leading up to it (and missed a gimme LG question that would have saved me).

The only thing that worries me is the potential to drop a point or two. I thought October was a very easy test, and we still got a -12 curve.

Is it worth running the risk of dropping/stagnating to go for those extra points when HYS aren't really in the picture?

Similar question except I would be retaking a 168 but no guarantee I would score better. Also congrats on the good scores.

Should probably retake. I am going to retake even though I DON'T WANT TO.

My only concern is since I really don't WANT to retake, I wonder if it will affect studying/performance.
