Help: Fedex, UPS, Brown or USPS?

Problem: I'm retaking SAT 1 tomorrow. But, I must also "postmark" my application materials by December 1st, which is tomorrow.

Question: What do I do? The local post office is open until 3:00 pm, but I want to have as much time possible to make sure all my apps are in order. The nearest FedEx Shipping Center is open until 6 pm, but I don't really know much about it. I know this seems like an obvious question, but I don't have experience with it. If I use the FeEx place, will it be a lot more expensive? Will the right postmark date even appear on the envelopes? What advice do you have?

Thanks in advance.

    Get somebody to help you that you can trust to send things out.

    Doesn't that seem a bit easier? Normally, for it to be postmarked, it needs to be turned in before noon that day.......
