advice needed - lsat and application cycle

My most recent lsat score from the October test was a 158. I am trying to get into a top 50 law school and am considering taking the April lsat to offset a waitlist that I received and to boost my odds for other schools. I'm not sure how much of a jump I'll be able to do in that time though as I work full time. Should I wait and take a later test in the summer or August to have more time to study to try to improve and then apply immediately at the beginning of next cycle? Or should I wait to hear back from all of the schools that I have applied to and go from there? I was waitlisted from my first choice. I might swap from a full time job with normal 830-5pm hours to one that is 5am-noon in order to make a better study schedule. Any advice would help!

Thank you.

    Let your scoring call your timeline... start studying now and as the test dates get closer you can determine whether you are ready or not.
