Applying to graduate school before conferral date...

<p>How does this work? I will completely finish my BS at the end of August, but the next conferral date is on November 15th.
The early admission deadline (for Spring or Fall 2013) at the grad schools I am looking at is November 30th. I understand that it is just the early deadline, but I have other reasons for wanting to apply and hopefully be accepted as soon as possible.
So, is it possible to apply before my actual conferral date? </p>

<p>Thanks in advance.</p>

<p>To add: The graduate schools' websites state that official transcripts showing degree conferral must be turned in with the application. That is what has me confused. Surely people apply to graduate schools before completely finishing, right?</p>

<p>Sounds like an answer that the grad schools will be able to tell you promptly. Telephone them?</p>

<p>Yeah, I'll be doing that today. Sent an email to one recruiter that I have been in contact with last night. Just thought this would be another good place to ask for a quick answer.</p>
