    I just realized I may have made a mistake when I had my official transcript sent. I paid extra to have it sent Express Mail but I sent it to the P.O Box Watertown address..and not the other address Aadsas gives you for Express Mail. It was sent out by my school July 13th but AADSAS still has marked as Not Received.

    Is this unusual?
    I had it sent regularly again today just in case the P.O box refuses the Express Mail original transcript my school sent (which would really be annoying!)

    I would say don't worry. It will take 2-3 weeks for AADSAS to update their website and recognize that they recieved it. At least this it what it took for me. Even if it is express mailed. I'd say give it another week and if nothing has changed you should email them or try and contact them VIA a phone call. good luck and don't stress.

    those of you who have sent express:

    is there a benefit? I mean do they REALLY acknowledge things faster that way?

    I have to send a grade change form this afternoon and I don't know if I should bother payiing like 15 bucks.... thanks.

    I think it takes about 2 weeks from the time you send your transcript until it shows as received.

    I would say when theres no deadline don't bother sending anything express. Its not worth it for you to pay 15$ to get a grade change in an extra 5 or so days earlier when AADSAS won't even do anything with it for another week anyway.
