I am applying Early Action to 12 colleges and wanted to ask some questions regarding the steps I must take.
1. After submitting the online application, do I send the conselor recommendation, teacher recommendations, essay, transcript and resume together in one portfolio? I have heard that the teachers must send these themselves. Also, was I missing anything to be sent?
2. When do I submit the SAT scores? Before I even apply to the college? The SAT board said that the scores would be received in 3-4 weeks. So if applying early action, they would be received pretty late if I submit them at the same time I apply.
3. Will the November 6 SAT be allowed for Early Action deadline that ends on November 1? What about for Novermber 15?
Thank you to all that help!

There are no all-encompassing answers to your Q's:
1. If you submitted an on-line application, then make sure you were not supposed to also submit your essay on-line. Otherwise, what many high schools can do is you go to your counselor and all materials to be sent to the college are provided to the counselor, including teacher recs, and the counselor then sends everything at one time. Check with your high school counselor to see if your school does it that way.
2. You can submit SAT scores to a college by either designating on your test application or paying a fee to send afterwards. It is fine to submit even before you apply, although in that situation you should always follow up with school after applying to assure it has put your app in the same file as the test score. In any event, it is your responsibility to assure that any test score is ordered far enough in advance to reach the college in time. As to when the score is actually needed by the college that varies -- for example, many that require an EA app by November 1 still take October test scores that arrive after Nov. 1.
3. You must check with particular school to which you are applying -- you can often find at the school's site on-line the last SAT test date that it will accept for EA.
On another note, as to your EA apps, I am assuming that you are not applying EA to Harvard, Yale or Stanford -- if you apply EA to any one of those you are prohibited from applying EA anywhere else.

Why are you applying EA to 12 schools? It seems to me like you are just prolonging the decision process until the spring. Maybe you should work on narrowing down your list of schools?
