I finished my application back in December, yet I continued to study for the SAT to improve my scores. I took my last test in January 21, 2017 and got my scores Feb. 23. According to College Board, my scores were automatically sent to the Academy Feb. 21. Checked my portal and still displays my old scores.

If my app has not been reviewed yet, can I still update my scores? I emailed my Admissions Counselor a few days ago, but no reply so far.

What does the Admissions website say? (hint: the answer is on there under "steps for admissions")
Also, 3 business days to receive, process, and upload scores is not a reasonable amount of time to expect your portal to be updated. It probably will take another 1-2 weeks.

Okay, I understand.

I actually sent another set of scores before from the Dec. 2016 SAT test. The Academy got them last week of January and those scores are not updated on my portal neither. I didn't think much of it since I knew I will be sending new scores in a month. I don't think my portal can be automatically updated unless I let my admissions counselor know.

Thank you for your reply.

I know this is very annoying of me to do... but you used a double negative.

Hopefully your email to the AC mentioned the December SAT. They should get back to you on that.

Understand the timeframe for standardized testing. What if academic or athletic achievements occur after the 1/31 deadline but before a decision? Does anyone have any insight and can we update our application?

Shouldn't be a problem, but it is best to ask your regional admissions team. Be prepared to provide some type of proof....copy/scan of certificate, award, or letter signed by activity leader/school official.
