In most of the colleges for submitting your application the unofficial score, that you will instantly get on the day of your exam, is sufficient.
Although GMAC mentions a TAT of 20 days for providing official scores, it usually sends it within a week. So by the time you application deadline is over, your college would have received your official score directly from GMAC.

So you mean to say.. Even if i take exam 1 or 2 day before application deadline, bschools will accept it...

No need to worry about 20 days gap,right?

As far as my research on B-school application process goes, you can definitely go ahead with the application without your official GMAT score. However, for authentic confirmation, I suggest you directly contact the admissions coordinator. They are usually very helpful and will guide you for all your queries.
