Ever since I got my 159 back in December, I've been debating this. My score puts me just about the 25th percentile at a bunch of the schools I'm considering. It puts me at the 75th percentile at others. I left some blank on the Logic Games section (my worst one) because I ran out of time. I feel that even with just better time management and some Logic Games practice, I can probably hit 160 or 161 at least. The question is, would this be significant enough (not only for getting into better schools but also for grants to lower ones) to retake? Some people recommend against retaking in February because it is too late in the cycle to even be considered at most top schools. I applied to some schools already, and I'm going to send others in soon. If I decide to retake, I guess I have to put that on the apps I'm doing now. But how about the others? Do they find out when I register or when I get another score? Seems like I should notify all schools except for the ones I'm pretty sure I'll get into with my current score. Should I call the schools up and ask them what to do? BTW, my undergrad GPA was pretty low at an Ivy League school, and I'm several years out of school, with a grad degree and work experience, so I don't want to wait another year to apply. Law school for me is now or never. So basically should I go for that 162 if possible and maybe a lower T1, or be ok with what I have?
