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.

I'm constantly getting spam e-mails for herbal pills that are guaranteed to make my PDF'S bigger.

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.
