    1. ISP - no, not internet service provide but rather in the context of, I would have went to school X if it wasn't for ISP.
    2. PBL - context: Is school X PBL based?

      PBL = problem based learning, a style of learning medicine whereby people meet in small groups and learn anatomy, physiology, pathology, etc through discussion of a case study.

      ISP probably means in state preference, the school prefers to take people from their state.
