I'm considering doing the same thing. I took it in October, and I actually did prepare pretty well, but the week before the test I was transferred into a new (hellacious) position at my job, worked a ton of hours, and was totally exhausted on test day. Ended up with a 158, considerably lower than I expected. Brooklyn Law sent me a letter the other day saying that they think I'm a really strong candidate, but are somewhat concerned about my LSAT score and would like to see me take it again in Feb. So I guess I'm going to do it. I should have retaken in December but didn't for some reason.
I think it can help, especially if you end up on a waitlist, or, like Brooklyn, there is no 'official' deadline.
