The Director of the Doctor of Public Administration (DPA) degree program at Podscorb State University wants to raise standards for admission. As a first cut, she is thinking about rejecting from further consideration all applicants for admission whose combined scores on the verbal and quantitative portions of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) fall into the bottom 70% of all who took the Examination in the previous year. Last year the combined scores on the GRE were normally distributed with a mean of 984 and a standard deviation of 73. Given her criterion, at what combined score should she set the standard for further admission consideration?
