Should I rush my scores to the UC? *URGENT*

<p>I ordered a delivery of my scores to a UC campus on Dec. 18 and College Board still hasn't sent it yet! </p>

<p>When my SAT II scores came out, I sent them again on Dec. 22, and College board hasn't sent those either.</p>

<p>The UC deadline for scores to be sent is Dec. 31 (in 4 days!). I don't think they'll be cruel enough to reject the scores if they're a couple of days late but I don't want to jeopardize my chances. Should I rush the scores? I already despise College Board for sucking up students' money... I don't want to give them another $40. </p>

<p>Thank you for your help!</p>


<p>I think you should rush them just in case.</p>

<p>Do not rush scores. Most colleges will receive scores after a week even when the order is not rushed, even sooner perhaps. </p>

<p>For instance when I requested my ACT test scores to be sent during Thanksgiving break, ACT said it will not process those orders until November 28. But when I check my account for one of my colleges they received the score in November 28. So don't freak out too much.</p>

<p>I agree that you do not need to rush scores. The UC requirement is that you send them before December 31st, and you have done that by submitting your request to The College Board. Most schools (including the UCs) have the scores electronically delivered on a set schedule - I know that for many it is twice a month - so you scores will be submitted with the next regularly scheduled UC electronic delivery. Don't worry.</p>

<p>Techhexium: Thanks for the help. I'm nervous because it's been over a week since I sent my scores and CB still hasn't sent them D:</p>

<p>alamemom: Thanks for your help, too. But, are you sure that Dec. 31 is the deadline to SEND the scores? Because when I opened my UCI admission page, there was an acknowledgement page saying that the scores had to be received by that day.</p>

<p>I guess I will not rush the scores.</p>

<p>Even if you had forgotten to have them sent by the deadline, do you think the UCs would reject you because of that? Watch this forum. Over the next week, you'll see literally hundreds of posters worrying about some item that wasn't sent or some rec letter writer out of communication -- all worrying if it shipwrecks their chances. Look. There's no legion of frothing admissions officers waiting to shut down the servers on the strike of midnight Dec 31.</p>

<p>They actually WANT to evaluate you and admit you. Don't forget that. Docs/scores/rec letters dribble in throughout February.</p>

<p>And, if late in the reading season rolls around and something is missing, they will contact you or your school. Imagine that.</p>

<p>I was quoting you from your original post where you said:
The UC deadline for scores to be sent is Dec. 31

I always suggest arranging to send the scores automatically when you sign up for the test - then you know for sure the December scores will arrive in time.</p>

<p>Nevertheless, if you requested your scores on December 18th (and paid for the service), you do not have to rush the scores. Good luck.</p>

<p>As T26E4 says, if something is missing, they will contact you.</p>

<p>Do not rush. UC prefers the old-fashioned way. </p>

<p>btw: 'Rush' is really priority snail mail, which means that a UC clerk has to open the mail, and enter your new info by hand. Regular delivery is an electronic download which UC updates automatically.</p>
