Did anyone receive percentiles from the unofficial score? My testing center didn't have it and was wondering what a 20 is this year.

They removed percentiles a few years ago. Back then a 23 was roughly 99tile, 20 was around 85tile. Depends on your tests of course, but ballpark, perhaps the numbers are a smidge lower today because scores have slightly gone up.

Yeah once you get above 20/21 each question is huge.
The most recent numbers in that chart were from 2009. If you take a look at breakdowns from like 2012/2013 (whichever year was the last) you will get a more accurate representation. Again, they have only changed slightly.

I ordered the official score report to laminate and place next to the bottle of a limited run of Jack Daniels I picked up right after my test, and the invoice for my SDN donation. Maybe there's a chance it'll be on there. if not I hope the ADA enjoys the 35$ I spent for a piece of their construction paper :)
