I got a 156, I have $3000 for tutoring and 4 months.  What score seems like a realistic goal?

maybe a couple of points higher; anything over 160 seems unlikely.

lower 160s....160-162
7 (46.7%)
163-165....middle 160s

166 seems like a modest goal, even if it is a 10 point jump, it can be easily done. I don't know about 170, though.

at least 170....

Don't sell yourself short now. You could get 180 if you try hard enough.

What LSAT should I be able to get if I retake in December?

Well, what do you think I could get realistically?

I would think at minimum low 160s. I improved by 5 points after taking a prep course.

So maybe 162 would be a good goal.

Did you prepare for the one you took.  I mean, if you took it cold or with very little prep and study hard, you may be able to come near 170, but if you prepped and felt like you did all you could, then your improvement could be very modest even with the tutor and all.

Hmmm...maybe I should just do classes then. What if I prepped without formal instruction but still covered the basis and a bunch of practice tests? Could 162 still be realistic? I was getting between 159 and 165 on the practice tests....about 162 on average.
