I was just very disappointed that school professionals would tell students one thing when the actual numbers were another (which were still excellent numbers, BTW).

    The last published numbers from the LSBN website is for 2007. Perhaps they are giving you numbers from 2008 or 2009. These would be different from those from the LSBN and correct for their last graduating classes.

    GRRRRRR. I'm going for a BSN afterwards, to obtain personal knowledge of theory.
