Yep! I had a (hopefully stray) 166 the other day and freaked out. All my friends said "isn't that still a really good score?" And I said "not when it's below median everywhere I plan to apply except one school."
When I first hit a 165 my coworker who's going to a TTTT and couldn't hit 150 told me "I hope you get that on the real thing!" I wanted to punch his stupid face.
Had a girl who's currently at a TT tell me "anything over a 160 and you'll be fine." I really wish that was the case.
That really is the mindset of 95% of test takers, and was mine before I found this site and /r/lawschooladmissions back in January.
I attended one meeting of my UG's pre law society shortly after taking my diagnostic and they were going over their scores from their most recent PT that they all took together. The highest score was a 149! And everyone was all excited for that person talking about how smart they are! I do go to a TTT undergrad but still, I thought our student body was at least smarter than THAT.
