retake.
If you apply to all of the top 14 schools, there's a chance a few might say yes, but if you retake and break 170 (just 2 more points) your chances will be pretty good that you'll have several to choose from

Ignore the assholes. You should get in at Cornell. Michigan is likely as well. We'll see about Duke and Georgetown in this down cycle.

^It may be a down cycle, but retaking is still good advice. Why settle for sticker or near-sticker at Michigan?

You are my numbers twin three cycles later. http://lawschoolnumbers.com/ndirish2010

You'll probably do better than me because of the down cycle, but I'm honestly not sure how much. I would retake.

Definitely possible, but I wouldn't say likely without knowing any other factors besides LSAT/GPA. Assuming average softs, I would say Mich is unlikely notwithstanding a down cycle.

Edit: also, OP, there's generally not much difference (employment-wise) between t10 vs. t14 schools.

Retake.

170+ and you'll get into some great schools.
