Yep, that's what it means.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: 160 to 90%

however, my personal opinion is that you have to consistently score at 165+ to get a 163 on the actual LSAT.  i know a guy who consistently scored in the 170's on practice exams, even a few 180's.  day of the test, got a 165.  He actually did amazing on the first 4 sections, got tired on the 5th section and got 11 wrong just in that section.

Not necessarily true. My highest practice test score was a 161, and I got a 166 (however, I think I am definitely in the minority). Have you taken an actual test yet, or are you just using practice test scores as a guide?

That does help - thanks. One more question - do a lot of people at PSU take advantage of the summer abroad programs? Does not having a job over the summer hurt your employment chances?

Thanks  :) I've been hearing some negative things lately about PSU's career development office. Any thoughts? I've also heard that recent grads are having trouble finding jobs in South-Central PA (which seems counter-intuitive to me) - have you heard the same? Overly-saturated market?

I am married, and one of my schools asked that I not bring my husband with me to a scholarship recipients' dinner. I kinda feel like that's bad etiquette on their part. I know it's expensive to feed a lot of people, but surely they can afford it. Is this a common response? To me, it makes the school seem much less family-friendly...

Does Kilroy still read this board (or other current PSU-DSL students)? I have some questions I'd like to ask of a current student if anyone's out there...

It took them about 2-3 days to request my LSDAS report. My acceptance came about a week after I went complete.

I did maybe 3 or 4 full-length tests, and a Kaplan CD that had a number of section tests. I only gave myself a month to study, and I felt very confident when taking the test.
