alright, here's the deal:  i want anywhere in the eastern side of the country.  i just wanna go to the best school with the most money that i can get into.  would you retake if you were me, or just go with what i've got? i would be happy with any top-25 school meeting the above criteria...

Do you feel like you underperformed on the LSAT? There's no point in retaking the test unless your 165 was significantly below your practice scores.

i feel like a 165 was about the worst i did on my practice tests.  i was primarily in the 166-170 range.  i do, however, expect that a somewhat lower score on test day is pretty typical of most test takers.  i am strongly considering a re-take, and i feel like a 168 could be in my future, i just wonder if my stats as they are are enough to get me in a good school...

plus, i don't wanna delay my applications by too much and end up hurting my admissions chances that way...

really this whole thread is a reaction based on the fact that we have 3 more months until the cycle starts shedding results, and i'm already anxious...

I don't know about top 25.  If you want to be east coast, try Temple, American, Villanova, St. John's.  I think for top 25 you would probably need to retake.  You might get a little money from Temple or St. John's, probably not Villanova or American since they are not historically very generous (unless you want to apply for the Public Interest fellowship at American, which is pretty much their only grant aid.)

I got a waiver from W&M, applied and was promptly dinged. They might be sadists.

I have similar numbers to you (164, 3.3) and am also curious about my chances with a few schools in the T25. I'm looking at it strictly from a probability standpoint, I'm going to get dinged like crazy, but all I need is one T1 to come through and I'm golden. Good luck on your cycle!
