I also vote for a retake for the reasons stated by Slumbutton.

A friend of mine who is also a 166/4.0 from an Ivy got into Penn this past cycle. She also got WLd at HLS and CLS. I know she was really frustrated with her cycle as it was progressing, but is pretty thrilled to be in at Penn.

Yeah, Penn is fantastic.  While this is a great outcome, if she had a chance to retake and score higher before the cycle began, she not only may have gotten into HLS and CLS (CLS with money), but may have still been able to go to Penn, just with a full (or large) scholarship.

Any way you slice it, a retake is a good idea.

Definitely retake.  The benefits vastly outweigh the risks in this instance.  Good luck!
