159/159, is it worth retaking in 4 weeks to compensate for a low GPA?

I'm an American applying to masters programs at business schools in France. My GPA is quite low, 2.91, don't have any special work experience, research, etc. I really wanted a high GRE score to make me stand out - also considering most applicants probably aren't anglophones, so the way I see it, a mediocre score reflects particularly badly on me.

I've only been studying 6 weeks and I think I could at the latest retake the test in 4 weeks to make the last deadline for an American school I'm applying to as a safety (French schools have later deadlines). Is it worth pushing through another few grueling weeks? Would a higher score really help me?

How many times have you taken it? If you've only taken it once before, I think you should definitely take it again. If you've already taken it a few times, then you should work on another part of your application.
