Most schools are now taking the highest score, and most schools will tell you this on their web sites.  check out a couple of schools you want to go to. My advice is to take the test now, the practice will always do you good, and if you feel good after the test see what your score is. If you feel you bombed it, then cancel your score and take it again in the fall.

Just keep practicing and learning from your mistakes. If you have been scoring between 168-174 consistently, you should try to figure out what you are consistently missing.  There must be a group or a difficulty level that you are hitting the wall with. Figure that out.

With the way the rankings work, Hofstra might gain back just as much next year...

Living legend makes a a bunch of great points. I would add one more.. If you are likely to live is Charleston after law school, find out what the local market is like for practicing law. Go to the career center at the school and ask about placements in Charleston. Talk to some local law firms and see what they are projecting for 3-4 years down the road.

The reality is that most students do have limitations on where they are going to go to school and where they are going to live and work.  If you want to practice in Charleston, then there might not be any advantage to getting a degree somewhere else.

This is true in most cities and states, i.e. if you want to practice in Indiana then going to school in many other places does not get you a leg up.
