I've wondered about this as well. We graduate 5/20, and presumably get our grades just before then, but I wouldn't imagine we get final grades, etc., until very close to that time. Does everything just have to be actually received or postmarked by that date?
Rule 6000.2(c) says: "For purposes of this subsection, a handwriting specimen is considered filed when it is received in the Board’s office by the following deadline [June 15]"
BTW the rules were recently amended on April 1, 2012, so might be worthwhile to take a look. The old rules required you to be in class at least 4 days a week and take at least 10 credits per term. And classes could only be from 8am - 6pm. The new rules took out this language.
