I'm really happy with my score (173), but I'm on the fence about retaking. My goal is any of HYS. My average over the last 5 PTs before the test was 176.7. My average over my last 10 was 175.5. I feel like I may have misread an LG rule or something careless and missed 2-3 questions somewhere in the test (I didn't feel anxious, and felt confident throughout the test). My GPA is b/t 3.93-3.95, so I'm covered on that front. Is it worth retaking? I know Asha has said she looks down on two takes, and I'm at Stanford's 75th. I just want to make sure I have the best shot possible, and LSN is honestly not the best resource here (Yale accepts a higher percentage of 174 people than 176 with my GPA per the data). Thank you:)
Given your GPA, it would not make much sense to retake imo. Your numbers won't keep you out of HYS. If your GPA was ~25th, that might be a different story.
The only outcome I can think of that tends to value 175+ (or 174+) is the Hamilton at CLS. That's really it. it's up to you whether or not it's worth retaking to up your chances of one scholarship at one school.
