Commended Student Minimum Score

Let's test the theory that this year's PSAT state score cutoffs will drop by seeing if the national minimum commended score does the same as sort of a leading indicator. Now that the commendation letters are coming in, since last year's commended cutoff was 202, has anybody received a letter for a October, 2011 PSAT score that was lower than 202? If so, what was the score? Hopefully, we'll see commended scores in the 199-200 range, or 2-3 points lower than last year.
