All program - 471 - Sept 1 cutoff, even with 4,500 ITAs
I thought it was going to be 470..
People with 460s should start learning some french, or find out alternatives to increase the score

Still too many people above 470. unbelievable.

I was very optimistic but i started loose my optimism. It seems like it will never drop below 470.

I don’t want to be mean, but that’s why I said 2 days ago that people should manage their expectations for scores below 470. It’s really unlikely to happen.
I faced that same situation back in January, and at that time I confronted the reality that without improving my score, I would be stuck at 469 forever. Don’t expect a miracle, start working to improve your score NOW.
