I thought of that, but if making the load even is the idea, then this seems like a decidedly bad way to do it, the 180/120 email load would be so much smaller than the 149/151 load - it would make more sense to send the 180 with the 150 and the 179 with the 149 and so on and so on...

Anyway, so if there's no other reason to write a program like that I'm calling shenanigans on the xoxo kids...

actually the best way to make the load even would be to send the 180's with the 150s (or actually 152, since that's now the 50th percentile). the 179's with the 149s. 177s with the 147, etc.

Oh my gosh, one of my buddies just called me and told me that aliens are landing on the White House lawn.  Oh crap, he just called me and told me he got his LSAT too.  -0 is a 175, -5 is a 170, -10 is a 161.  Oh my gosh that sucks.

Given the amount of data LSAC has on each individual user, there's no reason why they would need to look at LSAT scores to "reduce the load." In fact, they could reduce the load by just sending out X number of emails at one time and no more. They could order the emails by zip code, social security number, test center number, test version, lsac number, etc. etc.
