That's honestly my main rationale for retaking, just hoping I have a 175+ day.
That's why the conventional wisdom of "you always underperform on test day" is so dumb to me. Any one of us is just the average of our last 10 PT's +/- X points. Being +X is just as likely as being -X. In your case, if you're at the low end schools will never ever care, but the high end could change your life. There's no reason not to do it.
