ACT score question

Marcie123Marcie123 Registered User Posts: 150 Junior Member
My D is applying ED to a super reach and EA to 3 other schools. We just sent her scores to those 4 schools. She will have 5 additional applications ready to go if she does not get into her ED school. Can I wait until mid-December to send ACT scores or will they not get there by January 1?

    @Marcie123 i believe you will have enough time to get them in. Most schools are not sticklers to have the testing in by January 1 - only the application and recs. If that were the case, there probably would not be a december test date. You can always send expedited also. Good luck with the ED....which school?

    Do allow at least 5 business day to process the score report order. Most are delivery electronically. There is no point to pay extra for expedite report as it would only save a couple day.

    Thank you. @LvMyKids2 Brown. She knows the chances are extremely slim but she's willing to take the chance. If she doesn't get in, she may then do ED2 to BU. She's willing to take the risk because she also likes her safety schools a lot.
