I am currently looking at a 158 LSAT with a 3.837 GPA from Emory University.

I am definitely retaking the LSAT in December, but am wondering what people's thoughts are on extreme "splitters" such as myself. My practice tests were all high-160's. I must have had a poor test day.
The good news is that your situation is reparable. With a higher second score and high GPA, admissions committees are more likely to weigh those slightly more heavily. In general, however, splits are mildly negative at least; in essence, there must be a good (i.e, objectively logical) reason, and
it cannot weigh too heavily against you for that school, which it will as either score approaches the median. If either is lower than the median, you'll have your work cut out for you in the soft factors. And if it's the LSAT, which is it for you, your opportunity is to reset the table.
Do take the LSAT again, give it a full semester's worth of your attention, and best of luck.
