How does LHC sensitivity designed around simplified models map onto realistic SUSY scenarios? After reviewing recent public ATLAS /CMS constraints, I’ll present interpretations in terms of a 19-parameter ‘phenomenological’ MSSM and discuss lessons we can learn from such studies. As SUSY searches confront the LHC energy ceiling, what will shape future searches given the dearth of signals? Higher luminosity will help probe the electroweak sector beyond LEP bounds. I’ll discuss experimental challenges for detecting low energy ‘soft’ decay products, such as the Barr-Scoville strategy for discovering weak-scale scalar leptons.
