<p>My critical reading score increased from 680 to an 800 (December SAT). I didn't apply to many high ranked schools, but now I want to give it a shot. The only problem is that my transcript would arrive late. Would that be okay as long as my common app is on time?</p>
<p>There is usually leeway given for transcript and recommendation letters as long as they arrive within a reasonable time (before mid-Jan) after app deadline.</p>
<p>Agree with drusba. Make sure your essays and supplements get in on time though.
