Late SAT scores

I'm so annoyed right now! My son submitted his application, transcripts and recommendations by the deadline, but forgot about sending SAT scores until today. Will that still be ok?

    @ whizmom I suggest doing 3 things:

    1. Contact the admissions office, explain the scenario (without necessarily attributing the cause to your son's forgetfulness) and ask what they suggest.

    2. Contact the admissions office for an email address where you can send unofficial score reports while the official reports are being processed and sent by the College Board. This will probably work best if your son knows his applicant ID number.

    3. Have the College Board expedite the sending of the official score report.

    I believe emory said that they don't need scores/transcripts until Jan 8 at the latest so he should be fine. I'm sending my sat subjects today

    To meet our application deadline, a student must submit their completed Common Application and request their official standardized exam scores be sent directly to Emory University by JANUARY 1. Supporting school requirements, including transcripts, school reports, and recommendation letters, must be submitted within ONE WEEK of the deadline date (by January 8, 2016) for a student’s application to be considered complete.
