DEFINITELY retake. Don't take a 156 if you've averaged high 160s. Probably wait until October and have your applications ready to send off before you receive the score. Good luck!

Any schools you recommend to apply to this cycle? I was really hoping to not have to take a year off.

I hate to say this, but your numbers probably won't get you into a school worth attending in this economy. Your best bet is to retake and apply early next cycle. The time you invest (1 year) will have a huge payoff if you score near your PTs - both in short-term cost of legal education and long-term earning potential.

I have applied this cycle already but my pts were averaging around 167 with a high of 174 ( only time I ever broke 170). I am trying to figure out which schools I should focus on this cycle and If i should retake in February or wait until October. I wont be in town for June. Thanks.
