I would retake. Then again, I planned to retake anything under a 177.

Do you think you have a decent chance of scoring higher with more prep? What were your PT averages? Regardless of your answers to those questions, I think it's worth a shot. A couple of points would make a signficant difference for YHS (especially H), and it would definitely boost your chances of big money at Columbia.

I think I have a decent shot scoring around a 177. For a while I was scoring consistently above 176 (5 test) and then the last 3 I took before the real deal (within a weeks time) I plummeted down to the low 170s high 160s. I think burn out was taking its toll on me at the end. What I'm afraid of is whether a retake with a lower score or a cancel is going to hurt me at Columbia and the prospect of retaking makes me a little sick to my stomach still lol.

EDIT: Sigh, I know I'm going to wind up retaking, I just really, really didn't want to have to. But, I want in at Harvard so much and I don't think my 173 is going to get me in.


Cy-
You got this. You were rocking the tests, just hit a lull at the wrong time. I say apply this cycle. Then forget about all things law school. Then com march when the birds are chirping, life is coming back to the world, you can cheer up and attack with vigor.

Retake for $$$.


3.8 will make HYS difficult to get regardless of your GPA but a 175+ will give you an outside chance at H.

$$$ from some of the other schools should increase with an increase which should be your main motivator to retake.

You're at the point where you know everything about the test. Chill for a bit. About 5 weeks out, slowly get back into the groove of it all and then put the pedal to the floor as the test comes closer.

Keep it short but efficient. You know the test already and you will avoid burning out this way.

You are 100% in at CLS. I doubt it would hurt your $$$ offers.

In the current environment, a 175 makes H considerably more likely than not.
