On December 26, 2015, I decided to take the LSAT. I bought a book from Barnes and Noble, immediately registered to take the test February 6th 2016. My first practice test I ever took, I got a 139. When I took the test, I got a 155. After I got my score, I signed up for 7Sage. I'm a mom of 3 (my kids are 7, 5, & 3), and I work full-time, so while I wasn't able to study as much as I would've liked, I put in my best effort, and I was able to pull a 164 out of the December LSAT. While not a 170, I'm still really proud of myself for hitting the 90th percentile. I just want to encourage anybody that feels like they're never going to improve their score, or like their starting score is "too low" to see a big improvement! Stick with it, and trust the process, even when it sucks. Happy Holidays, 7sagers!

    Trust...the...Process! I love it when people speak of the great philosopher Joel Embiid. Congratulations on your progress and keep plugging away!

    So amazing! If anyone ever starts out low and feels like they can't achieve a high score, you're proof you can if you study smart and hard.

    This is really good. Diagnostics are simply first encounters with the exam. You have defied the "odds" other websites have sometimes spoken of. Great work!

    Some courses out there will say you can't increase more than 10 points, which I think leads a lot of people selling themselves short. You had a 25 point increase! That's insane! Congratulations--have some ice cream and some snuggles with your kids; you deserve it
