I'm the other way around...I'm a retaker who cancelled Oct., so my Dec. score will be the only one. If I end up in the low 160s, I'm debating applying to Berkeley (CA resident here)...all my other schools are T14s, and although my soft factors & GPA could probably get me into GWU, Cornell, UPenn even with a low 160s score, I'm terrified right now....
I would just apply to Boalt for the hell of it. I personally think it's better to get a definite "no" than to wonder what would've happened if you had applied (especially when someone with mediocre numbers gets in and you think, "WTF??! I had better numbers/soft factors/etc")
