yesterday i registered for the june sat1 (on the deadline)

i selected my high school as the test center.
when i submitted it said the center was "unavailable" for some reason.
so i selected annother local school to test at.
it submitted.

my admission ticket has a school over 2 hours away from me. i have no idea where this came from. i already emailed ETS but haven't gotten a response yet.

should i call monday? (it's long distance, so i don't want to if i don't have to)
will they charge me to change test centers, when THEY screwed up??

any help would be appreciated.
thanks!

Such things usually happen when you provide only your first choice test center with no backups. If your first choice is unavailable, the collegeboard will automatically select "the closest" test center.

You can just go to your school and wait on stand by. Even though it's called stand by, I've never seen anyone rejected before. Just go early to the test center where you want to take the test and you'll be able to take it there.

This happened to my freind. She called them and they told her after she told them she couldnt go there that she would have to pay 17 bucks to change it. She refused to pay but insisted they change her date/place. She was assertive and they listened to her!
