Time limit between GRE and application packages

  1. Nov 2, 2015 #1
    I have a question regarding GRE general as it is new to me. Suppose I have registered for the test on 15th of November and the score will be received by the college I apply on 1st of December. But my application packages (CV, statement of purpose, diploma etc) will only arrive there one month later. My question is, is there some time limit between the reception of GRE score with the application package beyond which my GRE score won't be acknowledged to be attributed to me?

    I don't think so as this must happen a lot at colleges. I imagine the scores come in and no one does anything until your official application comes in and then the scores are pulled and added to the newly created folder.

    However, don't take my word for it, contact the school and ask them.

    Why are you delaying sending of your application?

    There are some schools that have cut-offs in December most notably UCLA:


    If its because of the essays then write them quick and ask a teacher to review them with you before the rush.

    Yes, it's mainly because of the essays. I prefer not the write in in a rush because this document is supposed to be my mouth in front of the admission committee.
