For the last several years, there has been significant attention paid to examining the role of final state correlation in (e,2e) collisions. Numerous calculations have been performed using wavefunctions that not only are asymptotically correct but that were also designed to incorporate other final state physical effects. While these elaborate wavefunctions gave improved agreement with experiment in some cases, none were consistently better than the original three coulomb wavefunction of Redmond, which was used by Brauner, Briggs and Klar in 1989. In al1 of these calculations, initial state correlation were ignored. In this paper, we will report on the importance of initial state correlation on the (e,2e) scattering process.
