One strategy some students use, though I do not recommend, is submit application to a single school so you get verified and then add other schools after you get score.
My question for you is what will you do if you do not get an adequately improved score?
I'm interested in knowing why you don't recommend it too. That was my plan because I keep reading on here that they can still dismiss us based on our old score. I thought they were required to wait. I must have skipped that part. I will reread it.
