Scores Haven't Been Received by Princeton

I sent my ACT and SAT IIs to Princeton for SCEA, however I checked my application status on the website and it said that they aren't in yet. Will this hurt me/disqualify me in any way for SCEA? I sent my scores about a week before the deadline.

    I sent my scores in the first week of October, both SAT and ACT which are run by different companies. This somewhat removes the chance of the issue being on my end, since it would be a wild coincidence for both companies to screw up or delay.

    I suspect Princeton has the scores, but hasn't begun entering them into the app tracker yet. Don't worry about it.

    Cheezit, have you read Princeton's directions? You can take the Nov Sat, which logically means that you can send in your SATs from any date before and possibly after Nov 1.
  • CantigerCantiger Registered User Posts: 940 Member
    That is correct. If you take the Nov SAT test the scores need to be sent directly to Princeton. As long as they arrive by near the end of Nov it's fine. Note that the scores also do not appear in "real time" - it takes a few days from when Princeton gets them until they show in the tracking program. For those who had earlier test dates you will have put your scores on your application. Princeton uses the official scores to confirm what you included in your application.

    College board says that the scores may take 1-2 weeks for colleges to get scores, if the college receives the test scores electronically (Princeton does). You won't get penalized, though, if they are a little late. Don't worry.

    I got an email today saying my application was complete and all materials were received but my princeton application tracking system account still says my test scores haven't been received. Gonna check back in a day or two.

    ^ Don't worry it says that it might take 3-5 business days to update the application tracking system.
