UG senior currently finishing up my applications. Applying to 8 schools (MIT, Stanford, Columbia, Caltech, MSU, Notre Dame, Duke, UW-Seattle for the curious). I have plenty of research experience and a 3.8 gap (higher for math, physics). My recs should all be solid. This past semester was pretty hectic, and I somehow totally forgot to get some of my transcripts ahead of time. Specifically, I mean the transcript from one semester when I studied abroad (at a mathematics program), and the transcript of the introductory physics classes I took at a local university one summer. The transcript for my UG institution has been submitted on time. I'm going to send these out in the next few days, so optimistically most schools will receive them by mid January. How much will this affect admission decisions? Will they have already thrown my application out? Is there anything I can do?
