Yes, and I'd make sure to take a class and/or a lot of time with strategy books before taking it again.  For the most part, scores stay the same if the test is taken again.  The only exception is for people who put in a lot more time and a use a lot different study techniques.  Obviously some of it just wasn't making sense, so find those areas you struggled most on and focus on that.

What is your GPA?

Do you have a history of not performing well on standardized tests?

What schools are you targeting?

Do you have work experience?

A graduate degree?

Have done anything that would set you apart from most?

in general- take it over

but eracism is asking all of the right questions

for example- if you live outside NY and you are interested in working for small family law practice or working for the local / state gov- you do not need to go to top law school. In fact- you chances are probably just as good if you go to local school.

Go to the websites of the law schools you're interested in.  They all post the median LSAT score of the previous year's entering class.  Do your research!

Even if your GPA is 4.0--YES, RETAKE THE TEST!!!!!!!!!

Study your ass off, do what it takes so you'd get at least 150.
