I think there is another person on this board has very close stats to you and I think they have been accepted to NYU and a few other schools. Probably a good chance at most 15-6 schools and maybe some T6 schools? Best of luck!

I hate to be that guy, but would/could you consider retaking? You have an amazing GPA, and with a low 170's you could very possibly get a T13 full ride (definitely at least some $$$$). Motivation shouldn't be an issue if you realize you're getting paid tens of thousands of dollars to do better on a stupid standardized test. Also you'd probably get into Harvard so why not?

No worries. You’re not being that guy. I’m signed up for the February exam. Currently studying and aiming for a 170

I mean, you're going to do well, and if your LSAT in February goes up, you're going to do really well.

Not sure what there is to critique! Keep up the pace and best of luck. Let us know where you end up.

I assume you're applying for next year? Don't be afraid about skipping February and taking the next sitting if you're not testing in the 170s. Even getting close is going to net you a huge saving, so don't rush this.

I've already applied for this cycle, I'm just gonna see how things shake out. However, if I don't like how things play out, I'll apply for next year

I think the best option would be to retake. You have a great GPA. If you could bump up your LSAT, you'd be golden!

I hate bringing up race when it comes to applying to law schools, but if you score 165 or above then you can practically walk into any law school in America, even Harvard or Yale.
