Can I still apply for colleges that are due Jan. 1st?

<p>My father told me to add more colleges to apply to, and they're all due on January 1st on the common app. However, I did not hand in my transcript release form to my guidance counselor (which takes 10 days to process) and I am on Winter break.</p>

<p>So can I still apply to these colleges if I cannot get my transcript in by January 1st? I can still get in my application, guidance counselor recommendation, and teacher recommendations by January 1st, the only thing I will be missing by that date is my transcript.</p>
