I think without a doubt that is true. I was kind of freaked with all the talk of how you need over 700. The day I took my test, most people were talking about trying to get mid-600s. It was kind of nice, it put me at ease. The average score is much lower than you would think by visiting here. I think it was around 550 at the time I took it. Obviously if you want one of the top schools, you still need the high score though.
