will my college revoke my admission if my final hs transcript arrives late?

so i requested that my counselor sends my final hs transcript to all the colleges i was considering (1 for the college i thought i'd go to and 3 for the schools I was waitlisted at) but she only sent my transcript to the college i said i was going to (without me knowing). after getting in from the waitlist (csulb) i thought id make sure that she sent it to long beach, but she didn't and she just told me she would mail it to them (she said she physically mailed it on 7/10). should i be worried about my admission being revoked if the transcript arrives late, and does a physically mailed transcript travel at the same rate as letters and such, like if it takes 2-3 days to mail a letter, would that mean that mailing my transcript would also take roughly 2-3 days?

if my admission is revoked can i do anything about it other than cry?

my grades were great so my parents would kill me if i screwed up my chance at college like this x(. thanks for the help guys :D
btw the deadline for the transcript is tomorrow (July 15th) if that matters. i low-key just wanna be reassured about my situation Dx.

    I doubt it would be revoked. Call the admissions office up tomorrow and let them know ahead of time that there was an issue getting your transcript sent in and that it's on the way. I'm sure this is a pretty common problem. I've heard that it can affect scholarships (if they don't get a transcript at all) however, colleges can often be very flexible if you talk to an admissions officer or councilor.

    I hope that gives you a little reassurance. I'm not an expert though, just another student. I wish you luck!!!

    Agree, call admissions Monday and let them know that your transcript was mailed on 7/10 and if it hasn't been received yet it is on the way. You can offer to fax/email a document you have (ex. final report card) in the meantime but I doubt that will be necessary.

    It won't be rescinded IF you contact them immediately, explain that your transcript will arrive a few days after their deadline, and ask if you can have an extension so the transcript can get there. The vast majority of colleges will allow this. But if you don't contact them, that's a whole different story, so call them today. And email them. ;)
