(Skip to bottom if my rambling doesn’t make sense.)
I am currently accepted to the Mizzou Honors College and am applying for scholarships. I took the October ACT, and got a 32 for the second time in a row (however my superscore is now a 34… the science section and math section completely flip-flopped… sigh). I am so bummed about not getting a 33, and unfortunately Mizzou does not superscore.
So the Mizzou Scholars Award (http://financialaid.missouri.edu/types-of-aid/scholarships/scholarships/mizzou-scholars-award/index.php) requires a 33 or higher ACT score. The Mizzou website also says the deadline is December 15th to have scores directly sent to the school. So if I take the December 9th ACT, and send them to Mizzou, would this count? I know I can get a 33 if I really try. However, I called Mizzou and asked them if the December 9th ACT score would count, and the admissions office seemed unsure but thought that it wouldn’t be applicable since the score comes out on the 19th. Is there anyway I could rush my ACT score and have it get there on December 15th??? I heard they have “priority reports” but I’m not sure if that will be soon enough. Also they won’t evaluate the scholarships ON December 15th right so why can’t I have a four day late score?
I can’t keep calling the admissions office. They’re starting to think I am crazy.
Also many of the fellowship programs require a 33 too. Their applications are due by February 2nd, so the December score will DEFINITELY come in on time right?
Adding to the stress, the deadline (the late fee deadline actually…) to sign up for the ACT is TOMORROW. So I need to figure this out now. I am really tight on money, so if it is HOPELESS and there is no way to get the score on time even if I got a 36, then I will not sign up for it.
PLEASE HELP ME!!! Any information will help. I am so stressed out.
I CAN GET A 33 I PROMISE!
PS: What phone number should I call to get the ACT people to answer??? I need to ask them if I can rush the score and how???
A scholarship requires 33+ ACT Score by December 15th.
I am (potentially) taking the ACT on December 9th (if I think they will accept the score).
The ACT website states that the score will be available on December 19th.
Is there a way to either A) rush the score so it arrives on time for December 15th, or B) get the scholarship committee to allow my score to come in A TAD late.
Thank you everyone.
