The good news:
You have nine points to make up in LG, the easiest section to improve upon.
Timing seems to be a big issue in your score, which will only improve with practice.
155 is a decent starting place to achieve your score goal.
You have ample time to devote to studying.
If you finished the RC section, you are not hindered by reading speed.
The bad news:
Reading comprehension is by far the hardest section to improve. Nine points here can be a challenge, especially when none of them came from timing issues.
Your consistency between sections suggests a lack of concentrated weak spots where you could focus your studies efficiently.
All in all, the good far outweighs the bad. You have a couple options, each of which could work very well for you:
1. Take a full-length course. You will learn all you should, and the breadth will mesh well with your consistency.
2. Buy the Powerscore Bibles and many real LSATs, learn the techniques in the former, and find a good tutor to work on any problems that pop up. Take a couple tests a week.
Either way, don't worry about timing for the first month to six weeks - concentrate on internalizing the methods for correct responses.
