Of course it's realistic.

In the approximately two months that I've been self-studying, I've raised my average preptest score about 10 points. On occasion, I've hit as high as 168. If I can find the cash to take a Powerscore course, I'm confident I can raise it an additional 5-7 points, if not more.

I was in a hurry to try to get in for Fall 2007, which severely limited my study time. There is no doubt in my mind that a solid course and a few more months of study will dramatically improve my score.

Points 158 through 168 are a heckuva lot easier to come by than points 169 through 175.  You are moving from learning how the test works to working the test over.

Yeah, but no matter how I look at it, I know two months of study wasn't enough to be fully prepared, which means there's room to improve. If I had been studying for six months or longer, I might have admitted to hitting the ceiling.

it sounds like you're convinced you can do substantially better.  the questions then just become when you want to start school and how much you'd be willing to wait a year to go to a better school, both of which only you can answer.
