I was originally set on retaking in February in order to try and boost my chances of admission at my upper tier school choices. However, in doing this, my applications (submitted a week ago) would be held and cycled to the back of the line, potentially meaning that it wouldn't even be complete until mid March or later when the scores will be obtained by the schools. I know I'm not the only one in this situation; I even argued for retaking in another thread. But now I'm debating whether or not this is a good decision. Of my two reach schools (my first choices of course), only one will consider the score. That means I'm basically taking it for schools of preference #2,3, and 4. (5,6, & 7 I'm leaving them open as I'm pretty confident of my chances). I'm confident of improving my score, but worried about coming in so late in the cycle.
Does anybody else have any insights they could lend? Much appreciated!
