Last minute dilemma withdraw

i am in a dilemma regarding whether to take the test this Saturday. i had been scoring at my target of 173 in the retakes of the tests but on the only 2 fresh tests that i did this year in the last 2 weeks, i was much below the target, mainly due to rc. i also missed some silly points on lg so i think i can go near perfect on a normal lg section.

pt 72: -18, 166, rc -9, lr1 -0, lr2 -4, lg -5

pt 75: -13, 168, rc -6, lr1 -2, lr2 -2, lg -3

i have already 2 scores so this take is pretty much it. if everything goes normally i think i'd still be sitting at -11/-13, which would still be below my target. so i am unsure whether to withdraw and do december or just take it now.

how could one decide?

is there any point in doing a 73/74 rc (which are fresh for me) and seeing again if the section goes better?

    An important element in taking an LSAT is confidence. The fact that you’re posting this on Friday before the test means yours is lacking. Postpone the test.

    Retake scores are not indicative of your skill level.

    I think you should postpone the test.

    just remember, if you write the exam and then want to cancel your score, that will count as your third take.

    If the school you are applying to is looking for a 166 LSAT score, then take it tomorrow. However, I would post pone the LSAT until December. You don't want to go in on test day with nothing but doubt. You need confidence and postponing might do that for you. Take the time to take 2 PTs per week and then BR in your own time after you take each prep test. You can only improve from here! Good luck to you and your decision :)
