but I'm told that mail can still be received. You may want to call up those
universities and see if you can find the mail area and ask them what to do. You may
have to wait until this Monday, since everything will be closed.
I haven't faced the exact situations, but I have faced surprises and such from
USPS, like overnight stuff that takes more than 1 day to certain places so you are
guaranteed to be late. It's like, how were we supposed to know to ask that.
Even if it came back to you, you can probably still get it there in time to arrive the
first business day after the 1st, so it won't be so terrible, except you would have paid

Transcripts, letters of recommendation, and GRE scores can and do arrive late. Most of the admissions decisions are going to be made at the end of January and the beginning of February and all the schools really care about is that they get these supporting materials before they look at your file. Since these materials are largely out of your hands, they are very understanding if they arrive late.
