What have you got to lose other than $300 when retaking?

From what I've seen on this forum, I think you will likely be in for Ottawa but I wouldn't feel too confident in your position about Western/Osgoode/Queens - If Ottawa is your first or maybe even second choice, then retaking might not be necessary, but I would retake if any of the aforementioned three are your top choices.

A 157 is a bit low for Osgoode. 

If they are as holistic as they say they are my thought was that my GPA/ other factors would boost this, but thank you for your input!

Yes they are holistic. I'm not saying you have no shot, hope it didn't come across that way. Your GPA is unreal so you do have a reasonable chance! Good luck!

"unreal" seems like a bit too high a praise. OP has a GPA 0.15 above the lower bound Osgoode lists for successful applicants, and an LSAT 3 points lower (and importantly, a full 10 percentile points worse). 

It probably averages out, but still, I wouldn't want to be relying on my scores averaging out to the minimums listed.

    • Register for the exam, then all you have to do is email them that you're taking that exam (or indicate in your application) and they will hold off until January; schools don't even reject until way later.
    • I went from scoring pretty low on LG to -1/-2 by: 1. Reading the powerscore LG bible  2. Drilling LG by type (grouping, linear, hybrid) untimed and then timed 3. Drilling full timed sections, watching the 7sage explanation for each game and re-doing the ones where I missed inferences! I hope that helps! Good luck
    • I did the same thing. Could not find time to study at all.
    • I won't discuss this point further with either you or @QuincyWagstaff as you have seemingly no desire to change your ways. This is unfortunate and we all lose out. For others, perhaps more interested in learning about things, statistical significance can be found in any non-zero correlation given a sufficient sample size despite the differentiation that QW distinguishes as being an important one. It is something that has also given rise to the term "practical significance", to which QW and CH appear to be unware of. To put is succinctly, the difference between significant and insignificant is not itself significant.  Edit -Then again, I am on the spectrum. So maybe it's that.  
    • Hey, so I'm planning to retake the LSAT in Jan and wondering if i should include an addendum saying I'm retaking in Jan, was not able to do as well on my initial test. I have not registered for the Jan test, I'm just scared they'll pass my application after seeing my score. I did indicate on OLSAS that I intend to take the Jan test, but have not physically registered for it yet.
