    Haha I think 170 is very possible and is actually what I got on my practice tests, but it is also very possible for me to make one or two mistakes and get the same score as my first try. The real cost here is the 205 dollars I could spend on applying to 2 more schools (since Iíll be paying for my own test+application fees).

    In face of your financial constraints, it isn't necessary to retake since you already got a high enough score. Do note that the GRE's - only - purpose is as a uniform metric for the initial cut to thin the pile of applications. That 200 bucks is better spent applying to 2 more schools.

    100% agree with tutonic. The marginal product of the GRE diminishes a lot over a certain threshold, and I think most people would say you are over that threshold.
