So I agree that they're making a push for 168, but will be forced to take many more 167s and 166s. Even if they do hit a 168 median, that will mean 50% of attendees will be 167 or less.

Not exactly...

If they do hit a 168 median, it means that exactly ((total attendees/2) - 1) will have a 167 or less. Unless total attendees is an odd number, in which case the exactly ((total attendees/2) - 1.5) will have a 167 or less. By definition, not necessarily practice, of course...

LOL. I just got statisticly pwned.

Actually technically though, 100% of the class could have a 168 if the median is 168. Median just means the middle number.
