The warning is really in reference to students who do not plan ahead and so they request score reports on the day of the application deadline. ETS is aware of the typical application deadlines and, in part due to these concerns, has been steadily moving the date of the subject tests forward so that scores can reach the Universities in time. Specifically, this was an issue the first year that ETS introduced the concept of ScoreSelect since students who took the subject test in November did not receive their scores in time to choose which scores (test dates) to send in as part of their application (prior to this, all scores were reported, so there was no benefit in waiting to see the scores before sending them in). Because of this, the subject test dates are now in September and October. For either of these dates, you should receive your scores sufficiently in advance of the application deadlines so that you can use the ScoreSelect option if you choose to do so.
