I'm submitting today, and I would really need a final read through of my PS and/or DS. I'm willing to return the favor. I really appreciate any last words or comments in regards to my PS and DS. Thanks.

I think I'm actually going to go for a third shot and take it in December and apply in Jan. I just hope the risk pays off.

Hmm thanks, I think I'm going to risk it and retake for a third time. I'm teetering on a breakdown, but I don't think I could live with myself if I didn't try. Anyone else here retaking fora third time?

How about if you do better but not by something drastic as 10 points. Say from a 161 the first time, a 158 a second, and a  165 a third. Will the third time look bad?  Will they see the score as just a fluke?

Doesn't the ABA require that schools take the higher score?

It requires that schools report the higher score. Generally, it indisputably looks bad if you did worse on the retake. How severely that affects admission chances depends on the school and a whole load of other circumstances.

What other circumstances? And any advice as to what I should do?

I'm considering taking it again but I really don't want to. Neither of my scores fell within my average while taking practice tests, so I feel they're not reflective, but I don't want to do worse, and I don't want to apply in December because I feel a later application will hurt me. How high would I have to get in December for it to counteract the bad score in Oct, and the late application?

I too am pretty down. I was averaging 164  with a 160 being my lowest ever, and a 167 my highest. First time in June got a 161. Retook and now I have a 158. I feel like I screwed what chance I had... I'm not retaking, at this rate a 155 seems to be in my future.

So I just got my score back, and thinking I would do much better the second time around, I find out I in fact did worse. Will this hurt my chances?

I went from a 161 first time, to a 158 second.

Darn still haven't gotten mine. Do they post in order from highest to lowest? If so, then I'm depressed.
