They haven't received their scores, applied to or been accepted into any LS's yet so I wouldn't stress about the numbers of people.  The scaled score percentile ranking chart has consistently held to a nice bell curve with a median that has hovered around 152 forever.  There have to be lots of people each year that show up unprepared and attempt the test to fill up the achieved scores in the 120 to 150 range to create that statistical data!
