Yeah, I didn't understand the phrase fine print until I saw the pdfs on paper.

It's easy. When you open the "Print" dialog in Acrobat, look in the bottom left quadrant of the dialog box for a set of options under "Page handling". One of the options is "Page scaling". Click on that drop down arrow and choose "fit to paper". That should scale the files you got from LSAC to 125% for letter paper, still kind of hard on the eyes, but much better than the way they came.

Good luck.

Oh yea!  What's your initial size, dude?  Let me know of it. I guess more than 12, right?

Can you post a screenshot of what your print dialog looks like in Acrobat. I'm using Professional 6.0, there may be some slight differences with what you're using.

You guys got this all wrong... here's how you get it to look normal (I have the Pro version, so I'm not positive this works in the regular versions):

Go to the "Document" menu, then down to "Crop Pages", in the next dialog box, click on "Remove White Margins" under Margin Controls, and set the "Page Range" to All.  Click OK and printing with regular settings should give you the maximum size now.
