Uh oh...!! urgent!!

<p>I didn't send my SAT scores yet.</p>

<p>Today I found out that it takes 3-5 weeks!! omigod</p>

<p>the ED deadline is 11/1</p>

<p>Do i have to rush it????</p>

<p>no because ED accepts the November 6 SAT which wouldnt be processed til way later. They know what your SAT score is, they just need to form to be verified and they can verify that any time. i havent sent mine in yet either :-D</p>

<p>oh i see.. thanks lol</p>

<p>Since I'm giving the Nov 6 SAT, could I just designate Princeton as a recipient for that exam??</p>

<p>Or should I have an official report sent before that.</p>

<p>You can have the scores "rush" sent...I think that's a shorter period of time, but it'll cost you $20-something bucks, I think.</p>

<p>Yes, and my question is: do we have to rush our scores from the Nov. 6 exam? All of the admissions materials I've read have said that "you need to take any SAT exam no later than Nov. 6," but it never says whether it has to be rushed or not. Any answers?</p>

<p>I wouldn't think so...they would tell you if that were the case. If you're really worried about it, just go ahead and rush the scores. It'll be worth the $24 not to lose sleep over it.</p>

<p>And Princeton is winning the 'Post War' by a long stretch... "Tigers for the cup!"</p>

<p>You really don't have to rush scores, even for November. They said that they accept them, just put Princeton down as one of the schools to receive a report.</p>

<p>I actually found out a pretty interesting thing from I think it was a Northwestern rep a while ago.</p>

<p>All colleges accepting the ACT and SAT have a database in the admissions offices with student scores. When you send your score to a college, your score is reported immediately to that school (dropped into the database). The only thing that takes 3-5 weeks for reporting is the paper report, which the colleges apparently don't even use. Not that they use the reports anyway, really; apparently, they only verify the scores if you report one that seems way out of your range or something. Usually, your school reports all of your scores on a transcript, and that is sufficient. </p>

<p>I think that that information stemmed out of someone's question regarding the "rush" option--the ad com said that it was really worthless to bother. Hope that I was of help :)</p>

<p>Merci mille fois :) That just made my day that much better.</p>

<p>Philntex connait francais aussi. Geez. Il est mon favori.</p>

<p>Philntex knows a million langauges =)</p>

<p>Yeah, I'm a born-and-bred, died-in-the-wool language nerd/freak. I lock myself in my computer room every day, put blinders on, and subject myself to hours of About.com language audio files, BBC Language magazine excerpts/clips, and cause myself extreme physical pain by trying to physically mold my mouth into the shape it needs to be to produce the sounds of each language I learn.</p>

<p>It's so much fun, y'all. You should try it ;)</p>

<p>lol sure phil, now that you've made learning a language seem like physical torture... do you put rocks in your mouth to help you pronounce stuff too? <em>runs away scared</em></p>

<p>Was that a reference to "My Fair Lady"? Because if it was, major e-props to you. We're in the middle of rehearsals for MFL as our fall musical. Stalker, anyone? Haha, j/k.</p>

<p>lol suuure
hey, you're the one coming to new york!</p>

<p>Wasn't it Demosthenes who did that (w/ the rocks, I mean)? Wow, World History class seems so long ago...actually, last summer seems so long ago.</p>

<p>Well Professor Higgins makes Eliza put the stones in her mouth because "it worked for Demosthenes," or something along those lines. Ahh I love that movie.</p>
