<p>I am applying to UIUC. From what I heard I do not need letter of recommendation from my counselor or teacher. What about transcript? When do I need to send the transcript by?</p>

<p>Offical transcript must be sent by high school so request it immediately since it supposed to be postmarked by application deadline.</p>

<p>Just to clarify they want transcripts and test scores in their hands by Jan 12 so order transcript now since high schools are often slow when it comes to get anything out once it is requested.</p>
