Well, it's kind of hard to be exact when you're sticking a state in the middle of the map. It's not like they start you with the perimeter first .

I think the average error is off. I accidently unclicked a state right before I was going to drag it onto the map and it said I was 900miles off. Then my second error was 70miles and it gave me an average of 5miles. Maybe I'm missing something??

Yeah, I got everything except Kansas and it was nearly impossible to get it right since I had no adjoining states to use as a reference.
