You might think in year 2020 CollegeBoard would have a way of sending SAT scores to colleges electronically. Such as a web service for colleges to pull data. But no, they send SAT scores via snail mail. They have two options: $12 for regular snail mail, or $31 for rush order.
My question is, can I send the SAT score to colleges a few weeks before I am ready to submit my common/coalition app to the college?
I am worried that until I submit the application the college may not have an "account" open for me, so they don't know who I am, so they will simply discard the snail mail they get from CollegeBoard. If so is it better to wait till I submit my application then send the SAT score?
