Come on. Enough. Don't post a response if you're just going to say retake. I need some serious advice here and people have applied with worse numbers.

Serious advice would be to retake or to consider an alternate career path. Your numbers do not make you a splitter, they are just poor numbers. (i'm sorry)

I was being serious.

I have a bad GPA too (3.0) and I retook a 164 because it wasn't good enough to get me in to a decent school. You're in the same boat.

You have horrible softs then.

Look at this (viewtopic.php?f=9&t=141414)...

With a 3.0, 164 you'd need to be a pretty big moron or extremely picky to evade any good offers.

Key word here is possible. I've seen people called "splitters" with similar numbers.

Yes I have horrible softs, but what "good offers" can you get with a 3.0/164? And I read the thread you linked, but I don't understand what I was supposed to learn from it.

You must be a picky moron with horrible softs...after running your numbers I see countless admits from decent schools. And I sent you the link because he had similar numbers and was given credible advice other than some idiots saying a "retake" was the only option.

While I appreciate everyone's concern for the amount of debt I may incur, I'm not looking for T1 advice...T3 schools are fine and I don't care about debt at this point...just trying to get an idea of what might be posisble considering my softs.

In other words, what schools might be a good idea to try?

You should very much worry about debt.

You should worry about literacy and try reading my actual question...

at this point I'm evaluating the options.

Picky? If by "picky" you mean I want to go to a school with real job prospects, then yes, I suppose you're right.

"Moron," though, strikes me as a little ironic in this situation.

I'm somehow very shocked you got a -1 on RC. I assumed every question you missed was RC.

I surprisingly gained my most ground in RC while prepping. It takes nearly total concentration for me to do that.

On the real thing I did better than my average on RC (I normally got 2/3 RC wrong, and 0 LG) and only got 1 RC, but 2 LG.

RC isn't about paying attention to detail it's about understanding organization and flow.

It's closer to 20,000 since they deleted BP. And I've done much worse things than post on TLS too much. I'm actually friends with TLSer. It's sad really.

RC was my downfall throughout studying and on the test. Fucking horseshit.

In all that time have you contributed anything worth value? Seems doubtful.

I got 4th place in tls hall of fame for best contributor. People are stupid.

Seriously though TTTs aren't worth the debt. I may be a dick but not telling you that would be worse tbh.
