Clearly I'm delusional, but I thought 166 wasn't too bad?

I'm reading all of these posts where people are debating whether or not to retake the LSAT and have 160+ scores, which I thought was pretty good.  I wasn't thrilled with my score, since I had consistently tested in practice between 168-171, but I didn't think it was worth throwing in the towel or delaying my app until I could retake. Any insights?  Please, save the snickering at me for even thinking this is a good idea.  But any input would be appreciated...I'm starting to feel a bit sick at the thought of the adcom finding my application to be comic relief! :P

Yes, that's a terrible score, unless you want a full-ride at a toilet.  Sorry.  170+ is fine.

166 sucks if you're a HYS striver and not a URM.

166 is great if you're trying to go to some random school in the T50, or get a good ride to a number of schools in the T100.
