How shot are my chances after 156 even with retake?

Postby btermite » Sat Oct 14, 2017 5:11 pm

I was consistently in the 168-174 range on practice tests before taking the September LSAT.
Since the test I've taken a practice test with a 170.

I have a pretty bad history of anxiety induced panic attacks, and having one during the test led to my abysmal score in September.

Currently I'm at a top ranked liberal arts college, I have a 4.0 GPA but with the LSAC calculation I have a 4.08.
I was really hoping to have a shot at Harvard because of the Kennedy school and a long-term relationship that would work ideally if I was able to be in the Boston area.

I'm willing to put in a lot of time between now and December with a lot of timed practice tests and blind review.
I'm wondering how much of a shot, if any, I still have if I retake in December and get a better score/what would I need?
Or is the 156 just too much of a glaring issue in my application, even with an addendum?

Schools only care about your highest score, so as long as you get that higher score you should be fine.
