Not 100% sure, but school doesn't start until September. So there is still a lot of time left. Don't make yourself to crazy thinking you missed it.

I am one local north of you along the shore.

Good luck, that is a great score.

I would suggest, if you have time, go to the local and see if they have any volunteer work projects you can help out with.
Some are politically active, some have an Easter or spring activity or picnic coming up. Get involved if they will let you and put a face on your name.

His local is politically active. Their BM is a US senator. Two other NJ locals have BM's in the state house. Ours just got a journeyman in the state house.

Have you taken the interview yet? A perfect score is great, but the interview is the main factor in your acceptance. If you are a sh!thead at the interview the perfect score won't get you much
