Just chiming in here to note that, FWIW, I was offered a reconsideration by a school that axed me before my Feb retake score came out. (I never let any schools know I was retaking because I wasn't sure how it would turn out; in fact, following exam, I actually hoped to get in as many decisions as possible before the score came out since I was certain I had screwed it up badly).
I don't know what the outcome of 'reconsideration' they said I would be eligible for would have been - don't really give a shit about the school any longer, to be frank, and they never really were at the top of my list to begin with - but I would not be surprised if I had in fact gone from rejected to accepted in the same year. LSAT score changes are huge - my cycle certainly proves it - so if OP can, in fact, significantly raise his score in June, his hopes are perhaps not as misplaced as they might sound.
All that said, I would recommend reapplying altogether if (s)he pulls off a great retake.
I think February and June are probably different animals. The majority of schools still have lots of slots available when February scores are released. By the time June scores come out the only slots they have are random ones that open up due to summer melt.
