i hope its ok to ask this question on this thread. i received a 173 and not sure if i should retest. i am 10+ years out of undergrad with a 3.67 GPA (not sure what my LSAC GPA would be). i had a successful business career but have been a stay at home mother for 3 years. i also have my MBA at Harvard. i am aiming for Yale and Columbia (given where I live now and don't want to move). is getting a 175 really much better in the scheme of things than a 173? thanks.
a huge amount of weight (unfair, but true) rests on the score. i would not take it if 173 is solidly in the realm of your scores. however if you have been scoring a 179 on every single practice test you've taken, or something else consistent like that, you should consider another go-around. but do not take it if the chance you will do worse is as large as the chance you will do better.
