I found this question asked twice on this forum by searching. However, I haven't found a confirmed answer. If the deadline is 10/11, when do I need to provide a self-reported score vs. when do they need to have received and processed the score from GMAC? Below is the text from the admission website:

"The date that your official scores are sent to UT Austin by the testing agency should be no later than the application round deadline as it can take up to 3-4 weeks for official test scores to be received and processed by UT Austin’s central Graduate and International Admissions Center (GIAC)."

Any insight or detail would be great.

Hope this helps:
- Self-reported scores are the scores you enter on the online application. This of course needs to be provided by the application deadline.
- Official scores are the scores that GMAC sends to the school after your request. These scores are compared with the self-reported scores you put in earlier, as a verification step. This request to GMAC can be made in two ways: (a) Through asking GMAC to send the score to McCombs after you take the GMAT at the test center (you can send scores to 5 schools for free); (b) Putting in a separate request through MBA.com to GMAC to send the score to McCombs (this option is paid). The date that you make the request is noted by GMAC when processing your request. Therefore, you should make your request latest by the day of the deadline. Post this, McCombs will allow for 3-4 weeks for GMAC to process the request and send the report to them.

Have tried laying this out in as much detail as possible, including some basic points, to help you and other people looking for the answer. Feel free to come back with further questions as needed.

Great response. Thank you. The part that threw me off was the 'sent to UT Austin by the testing agency.' I wasn't sure if the delay was on GMAC's part (if the schools you listed weren't simply notified immediately for some reason) or if the university actually needed 3-4 weeks to process (as in they get the scores immediately). I guess it would be better if the marketing materials stated, The date that your official scores are request to be sent should be no later than the application round deadline...
