Does anyone know how long it takes for the official score reports from collegeboard to get to the universities I pick?

Thank you.

As I've heard from some schools' representatives, they come in on a weekly basis.

Oh... so it'll take about a week for my scores to be received by the university?

Thanks.

But with lower-tier schools you gotta check. Some of these schools have a habit of claiming not to have received your scores. Some lazy office worker just doesn't want to bother to update applicants' files. Then you ask the College board tp re-send. They graciously comply. But the problem is not with College Board; it's with the school. So, with lower-tier schools, you take absolutely nothing for granted. Check!

It's not just lower tier schools that lose things. You should check with ALL schools. I know kids who applied to the Ivies and things were "not received"....recommendation letters, SAT scores, transcripts. This type of loss is not exclusive to the lower tier schools.

How do we check? e-mail them?

I sent the SAT scores before I sent my actual application... they will start a file for me, right?

thank you-
