SAT Sent Scores Still Pending!

<p>I requested for my SAT scores to be sent on October 13th and according to the website, this request is still pending... Will they be sent before November 1st?</p>

<p>I would call collegeboard. they will be able to give you the correct answer</p>

<p>Okay. Thanks! :)</p>

<p>Does anyone know what number I should call to do this?
The scores are still pending…</p>

<p>College Board does this to get people to pay extra for rush delivery. Seems like a scam to me. After all, how hard is it to press “send”?</p>

<p>Is this a common problem? My scores are also “pending”</p>

<p>I’m pretty sure testing companies just like to make extra money, yeah.</p>

<p>Its just like how the AP exams let you get your score over the phone for 10 dollars, even though the process is entirely automated.</p>

<p>Any guesses on when they’ll be sent out?</p>

<p>Hopefully soon. My guidance counselors said orders should be placed a few weeks in advance as it takes a while for them to be sent. </p>

<p>I’m hoping they are going to send all of them tomorrow.</p>

<p>Mine are still pending as well… I thought they would be sent out within a week or two as I need them for early decision</p>

<p>@plann3r, I need them for early action. I hope the colleges I apply to won’t penalize me if they are sent in a few days late… It’s not really our faults right?</p>

<p>I think they might send them all on October 31st or November 1st.</p>

<p>Check out the posts over on the “B” students thread…apparently college board is swamped with requests for Nov 1st ED/EA deadlines and is in a backlog…</p>

<p>hopefully they will send out some sort of press release so the colleges are aware of this (but don’t count on it)</p>

<p>I did not read the thread, but why are they swamped? It is presumably all automated. Some programmers wrote a program taking the info from the ordering system and query the database for the info and put all the scores in a file for each school and send it electronically. Right? And they have been doing this like, forever, I think.</p>

<p>^^no idea; just the messenger</p>

<p>Sorry, it was rhetorical question and might have been a little rash but it was in no way pointing at you.</p>

<p>I think collegeboard has a reputation for being slow with sending scores…</p>

<p>If you look at other posts, some believe this may be to coerce students into rushing their orders and so, paying more money.</p>

<p>I dont think they’re going to make it by November 1st.</p>

Do you think it will reflect poorly on me if they don’t?</p>

<p>I hope not, as I am in the same situation as you. For most of the schools though including common app we have listed our Standardized testing scores, so I would hope they can initially use the self reported scores until college board comes through.</p>

<p>We sent the scores on 10/20 and it is still pending. I called CB, asked them can I change the order to Rush. They said the transaction is being processed, so I cannot do it. I then called the college, I was told it is ok for the score to arrive later then Nov 1.</p>
