Thanks BB! So, the initial score that they post to you is not the 'official' score then? My concern is that I won't get the mailed-in results within the timeframe I had hoped to submit my application in by. I presume I can just list my posted score in its place?
The way the scores work (here is more exhaustive description: http://www.gmatclub.com/members/score_report/index.shtml
I have actually just re-wrote this document.)
Anyway, usually schools don't accept the scores from you; GMAC has to send them in to the University, so if you have requested for them to be sent, you can't really do anything, but if you did not do it, then you need to hurry and request your scores to be sent in. Usually schools have a place on the application they ask you to list your scores and percentiles, and you just list them there....
