Anyone familiar with MLIC?  They guarantee a score of 165.

As a general rule of thumb, any prep source/company that guarantees a score is a bad one and should be avoided.  For many reasons, nobody can honestly guarantee a place on the scoring scale that their students will achieve or exceed on test day.  None of the quality/reputable prep sources offer this type of a guarantee.  It's a desperate and pathetic marketing ploy typically used by unscrupulous prep companies run by people that don't know how to effectively prepare people to take the LSAT. 

Roughly 92% of people that take the LSAT score below 165.  If this company has discovered a magic formula that works to ensure most or all of their students score in the top eight percent of test takers, I'd like to know what it is since it would revolutionize LSAT prep and higher education in general.  Unfortunately, no simple/magical 'just do XYZ and you'll score 165 or above guaranteed' educational formula, system or pill exists since the LSAT is a skills based achievement/aptitude test.  Students have different starting points and proficiency/understanding/skill levels with the logic and other skills tested by the LSAT that depend in part on abilities acquired/developed during previous education in grade school/middle school/high school and college. 

In short form, you cannot buy the skill sets the LSAT is designed to measure in order to achieve a particular desired score, but you can buy quality education that builds on existing academic ability to IMPROVE performance on the LSAT.

If you are a legit student rather than a shill/spammer for the company, I suggest you avoid them like you would try to avoid a plague.
