Transcript not arriving in SOPHAS: am I screwed?

Grad school in public health filter: due to delays in my college sending them, my transcripts are steadfastly not registering as received in SOPHAS. My first application is due Monday. Is there any hope?

I'm applying to the Berkeley SPH. I was planning to submit the application this weekend (deadline is Monday at midnight), but my undergrad institution didn't send my transcripts until 11/26 despite me requesting them a few weeks ago. SOPHAS is not registering receipt of my transcripts, and it appears that Berkeley requires "all materials" by the deadline. Is there anything (overnight mailing, physically storming the castle) I can do aside from twiddle my thumbs and obsessively check SOPHAS? Additionally, if I can't make the deadline, is there a point to me submitting an application late?
I work full-time at a stressful job, volunteer part-time in a stressful environment, and am currently just a great ball of stress, so I can't tell if I'm catastrophizing or if I really am screwed. I've already called Berkeley multiple times (no answer; email says "we'll get back to you in 48 hours") and called SOPHAS, who referred me back to Berkeley. If the answer is "you're screwed, and you should have submitted a few months ago, not a few weeks ago," well... that's a hard lesson, but I guess so it goes. Just please be kind.
