Theoretically you could, but I think this would ultimately serve as a detriment to your admissions process rather than benefit it.

Noooo

On what do you base that?

The LSAT was essentially created as a one take test, except for extreme situations, but that has slackened a little bit as of late and some schools are starting to recognize that quite a few students are retaking, but three times is a bit much I think. You have to keep in mind that the LSAT is not like the SAT (a test that it is greatly in your benefit to take multiple times).

I took it three times.

I feel like there's a difference between taking it once and twice, but not so much between twice and three times.

I went up 4 points between the first and second, then 7 more between the second and third. I asked some schools how they feel about someone who took the LSAT three times, and most responses I got were that they are looking for an upward trend.
