Respected Sir/Madam, I wish to apply to the Illinois MBA program for the Fall 2011 intake. I seek to target the Feb 1st deadline. However, I happen to order sending of GMAT and TOEFL score reports only recently and I am afraid the scores would not reach the school in time. I would like to know would that delay the admission process or a kind consideration be made to proceed with with the uploaded scanned copies of unofficial score reports, until the actual ones arrive electronically. Eagerly awaiting your reply. Thank you very much. Sincere Regards, Devarshi Rajiv Kalraiya

Hi Devarshi, Thank you for your question. As long as your application is submitted by February 1, you will meet the deadline. We wait to review your application until we have received your official test scores and your application is complete. As long as the test scores arrive in a reasonable time (a few weeks) after the deadline you will be considered for the second round. Please feel free to send the scanned copies so the admissions committee knows that your tests are taken. Thank you for the question! Illinois MBA Admissions
