I feel great pressure and can't even sleep well at night. My aim is above 170 and now I am around actual 155, BR 165. Can I really reach my goal on the test day? I really doubt about that and feel hopeless. I spend all day long to study LSAT alone but efficiency is really low. OMG.

    Your input/output ratio will be low if you are just starting off.
    Don't be discouraged though.
    Remember, LSAT is skill-based test!
    It's like playing a guitar or lifting.

    I started off with low 150 and took about 2 months and 20+ PTs to break the 165.
    I hit 170 several times and can say that I am comfortably within the 165+ range now.

    Just remember to be patient with yourself, and be consistent.

    CJ, I have to say your advice helps me. I plan to finish the course as soon as possible and start doing the PT test.

    It is going good, I love this course. I am about 20% through, I feel like my LR has improved a lot and I love the idea of BR. I want to get through the course, but I realize flying through the course without understanding all of it is useless. Make sure not to do this, and try not to panic. I feel the same way about time absolutely flying by, trust me!

    I am about 30% right now and maybe we can have a little competition here, like study buddy :D
    I believe as soon as you finish course and begin to do the PT, your score will make lots of progress.

    Hey, I am feeling the same way. I feel great pressure and I am overwhelmed with discouragement. I desire to do so well and I am so stressed. I am feeling somewhat hopeless. I pray tomorrow will be a better day of studying for me.

    Hey DD don't feel so bad - I feel the exact same way. I feel like its natural when you really care about something, but at the very worst scenario we could write in december. that gives another 5-6 months if you think of it like that. thats not to say to relax now, but realize its not the end of the world if october came and you weren't ready to write.

    that being said, how far along are you? i feel constantly behind but i feel like thats just me being neurotic

    @JS I had a family set back for about 2 weeks and that really put me behind so I'm not close to finishing the course yet :/ and I'm working on not feeling down about my delayed progress. Thanks so much for asking and @kyuya thanks so much for your encouragement to my earlier post :)
