I got 178 on the October test, after scoring 168-172 on practice tests the week before.

Wow Em!!!!  Man, I sure hope I have your luck/skill.  Why do you that happened? 

Part of it was just getting comfortable with the test; I learned that I could complete all of the questions in a section with a few minutes to spare, which sorts of questions I was likely to mis-read, and what sort of copying-answers-to-the-scoresheet pattern I liked.

But in reality I really don't have to do that either because even on her period she's still a great person and has a very temperate predisposition.
Did you ever see the SNL skit with folks coming out of a Broadway hypnotist's act saying "It - Was - Much - Better - Than - Cats. I - Would - See - It - Again - And - Again."?  I'm not sure what made me think of that just now ;)

For Q. 16 to work, LSAC needs to have said "both."  Otherwise the question falls apart with my example.

Yep.  This drove me nuts, and I ended up spending my last four minutes of the section trying to rework the answers.  I was convinced that I had to have gotten 2 or 3 wrong, but ended up getting them all right.  :o

Are you related to Jessica Simpson, EM?  I know that she was born in Waco but grew up in Dallas.

Nope, nor the Springfield Simpsons.  I'm from Michigan, originally, then all over the East coast.  We do get occasional calls from people, too foolish to realize that Jessica's number is unlisted, working their way through all of the Simpsons in the Waco phone book.

I'm sure EmSimpson is going to raise the Spring admit stats from last year all by himself. You stud, you! ;)

I am a spring chicken myself, that's why I asked...how did you find out?

I received an offical acceptance letter on Nov. 4th.  Then again, my application may well have gotten early attention due to a funny exchange of emails I had with the admissions office that alerted them to my numbers.

How is it that everyone seems to know whether or not they got a scholarship?  I thought that info was going out in January...

Not for Spring chickens like me.  We start class at the beginning of February, so Jan. would be a bit late...

Baylor only gave out 3 full scholarships in 2002 - 2003, so that's more the reason to think lightening may strike twice.

I can't for the life of me find it now, but I clearly remember looking at a table that showed 3 "full scholarships" and something like 17 "greater than full scholarships", whatever the heck that means.  Anyhow, I suspect that full rides are about as frequent as UMHBmom's anecdotal evidence suggests.  Speaking of which...

Ya know, I read that about Baylor scholarships, too. I felt all special, but a quick trip here and to LSN and I think someone musta robbed a bank between then and now. I've "met" at least 7 people who've gotten full rides so far, including you and me but not counting EmSimpson who did and won't say so (c'mon!!).
Yes, I've gotten a full scholarship.  I didn't mean to be coy.  :)

Yes, it's a necessary condition.  If he makes pasta then he has tomato sauce, or conversely, if he has no tomato sauce he won't make pasta.

It's the whole getting a 3.92 GPA in math AND a 178 that scares the poo outta me....  ;) The man must be the human equivelent of Big Blue.
I feel like a geek just for pointing this out, but I "only" got 3.81 UGPA  ::)  My wife would be the first person to point out that my strengths are amply balanced by my lack of common sense, general awareness of my surroundings, etc.  So, be not afraid  ;)

Probably has multiple felonies and gonorrhea.

Hey, now!  Let's save the trash talk for finals week!  8)
