    December might be too late. I know from last year, scores came out December 22. They have to send the score after that.
    Plus you can't apply ED or EA if you take something in Dec.

    November is also late for EA and ED, but it should be fine for RD.

    October is the final chance for most seniors who apply ED or EA.
    Sometimes, students who apply under these plans have a better chance of acceptance than they would through the regular admissions process. These plans are also good for colleges, because they get students who really want to go to the school to commit early in the process.
    Early Decision - Early Action - apply to colleges, search

    Would December be too late if i am trying to make january deadlines? if scores come out December 22, then shouldn't there be plenty of time to send results online to colleges?

    When you go to the College Board website to send the scores for the SAT and/or the SAT II subject tests, you are given the option to rush the scores or send them regular delivery. It says the rushed scores will be sent electronically within 2 days.

    Several schools will even allow you to take the January SAT II's.

    No, I checked on many school websites (e.g. Harvard, Yale, etc.) and they all said that December results WILL be accepted. They also accept January scores, but you have to send those in AFTER you apply to those schools (obviously: Jan 1 deadline) and you also have to indicate on your application that you are going to take tests in January.
