161, 3.93 GPA, average softs, 6 yrs WE, awesome LORs from work and college connections (a sitting congressman, that has to count for something, right)

No interview request to date.
I was put on the (preferred, what does that MEAN) waitlist last year and decided to not pursue admission for last cycle because of personal issues. I was really disappointed to not get my LSATs up AT ALL after a year; I had practice scores consistently in the upper 160s / low 170s, but nailed a 161 twice on the actual tests. Unfortunately working 60 hours a week isn't super conducive to intensive LSAT studying.
Anyways, no reject/waitlist email yet which I am praying is a good sign. Will continue to obsessively check my mail. Good luck to all of those with decisions still pending, and many congratulations to the admits! Hope to see you all next year
Is there a limit imposed by LSAC on how many times you can retake? I've heard different things about this. I guess another retake with a higher score wouldn't look much worse than two 161s
Three times in a 2-year period.
General rule of thumb is that schools are just looking at the highest. So, retake.
