Yeah, where? If what you meant was they are more lax with free reports than paid ones, that's wrong. If something sounds too ridiculous to be true, especially these unsubstantiated "myths", don't make decisions based on them until you see proof.
I still laugh at the guy who said something like, "I heard that every third year the PGRE version is very very hard. Since the 1996 test was very very hard, and 2008 = 1996 mod(3), does that mean we're in trouble?"
But there is a ring of truth to what you heard. When you take an exam, your "free" reports are delayed in that they're not sent until your new scores come in (obviously). When you order extra reports at $15 a pop, they're sent immediately (within a few days) to the schools since you already have your scores... unless you specifically tell them to "wait" for the results of a future test to come in first.
