Yes. Forgot to mention though that for UF/FSU/UGA/GSU I could get either Georgia or Florida residency so I wouldnt be looking at a ton of debt.....

I didn't get any of UGA/FSU/IUB with a similar GPA and a 165 last cycle (didn't apply to the rest). However, I was not in-state in Georgia or Florida, so maybe it makes a slight difference. Also, if you're going to re-take in February, you have to wait for next cycle. Applying with Feb scores doesn't work for splitters (though it can help for scholarship increases).

I was thinking apply and use feb to get off waitlists. I'm leaning towards retaking december now. I feel like if I can improve 2 points it would be just as good if not better than applying with a 164, because I would be waitlisted anyways.
