A couple of questions about sending scores

Thursday8Thursday8 Posts: 643Registered User Member
For the UCs, the scores need to be there by Nov. 30, and the rest of the schools need them by Dec. 1. Today's the 13th. Should I rush them?

Also, I will be getting a Math II score on the 20th which will most likely be an improvement on my old score. The score I have right now is low for an engineering major, so I want the schools to see the new score (and possibly not the old score - can I tell schools that want two Subject Scores that I am planning on sending another score?). Should I send all the scores I have now, and then pay all over again to send one score to each of the schools?

    What schools are you talking about other than UCs. November 30 is the UCs app deadline but not their deadline for test scores The UCs actually accept Dec tests and scores don't have to be in their hands until January. You should send scores to only one UC to which you are applying via regular delivery; you need send to only one because others automatically get scores from the one; and you could easily wait until after that Nov score is released to send any scores to the UCs.

    Some schools have a December 1 deadline for scholarship consideration (for example, USC) and others have a December 1 deadline for people submitting arts supplements.

    For USC you should order scores sent now regular delivery. They will get there on time as long as you do it now.You can then send Nov subject test score when it comes out. It can arrive after Dec 1 because USC does not require subject tests and you only need to send required materials by Dec 1 to meet scholarship deadline.

    What about CSUs? Like Cal Poly SLO?
  • drusbadrusba Posts: 7,987Registered User Senior Member
    CSUs accept through Dec tests except Cal Poly wants all testing completed by Nov and it likes to have scores by early December. You should send existing scores now by regular delivery. It does not use SAT subject tests for admission; that is true of all the CSUs. However, Cal Poly will use the SAT subject test in math for placement after you are admited and submitting it may allow you to avoid taking its math placement test after being admitted.
