Ok, here's my situation. I want to apply for a nomination from my U.S. Senators and U.S. Rep. The deadline for Senator Bob Casey is Oct. 3, all info must be submitted by that date including SAT/ACT scores. The problem is I have not taken the SATs yet. The reason is that I am using the "fee waiver" and it only covers up to four tests. Because of that I planned to do as many free practice tests as possible and only take the real test when I was almost positive I would get a good score. Anyway I was registered for the test, I got sick and had a really high fever, so I wasn't able to take the test. I have regrets now thinking that I should have tried anyway. If I take them on Oct. 1st, I think even with "rush scores" (on College Board it reads that it takes about 2 days before scores are revealed) they won't be available before that date. Is it a good idea for me call their offices explain my situation? Ask them if it would be acceptable to submit all the other info by then and submit the SAT scores by the interview dates (Oct. 25-27)? I don't want to bend the rules and I would perfectly understand if that is not accecptable. Thank you in advance for your help.
