In general you are always better off getting your apps in earlier, although 75% sounds almost absurd. The schools won't take action on your application until they have the lsac report, so a late lsat will make a difference.
As far as the test itself, unless you are fairly secure that your next one will be 10 points higher, you may want to cancel. If you get say a 162 and 169, they'll still average the results. Some schools average your lsats regardless of any disparities between scores. Bear in mind though that most people suffer a drop-off from practice to the real thing, so if you end up with say, mid 160's, it might be worth keeping. It'll still give you a shot at UT and VA and other really fine schools like BU, UCLA and so forth. Best of luck.
