168, 3.6 want uva. retake?

Edited because I listed all of my (as I now know) essentially useless extracurriculars.

Yes you should retake. You are below both medians. You are gonna want to score median (170 I think) for a good shot.

Agree with the above advice. If you did an ED you would have a shot being a resident, but why not retake in October, boost your chances, and maybe put yourself in line for some scholarship money?

A 170+ would work wonders for you.

Retake certainly makes sense. With an ED I would think you're still competitive given the expected smaller app pool and being in state. But there's no good reason not to re-take.
