Some programs haven't updated their page for years...
I hope they know about the new scoring system and I think only the 3 digit score is released anyway.
Anyone?

Call/email every program before you apply. Although the websites aren't updated, the coordinator will give you the updated information on what criteria they would be looking at this year.

Good Luck
