You should not work wet soils so the best approach is to wait until it dries out before tilling it again. I know that's not what you want to hear! If you level the area and seed it, you are still looking at 5-6 weeks before the new lawn will be sturdy enough for foot traffic. You may be able to lay sod for an instant lawn that can take foot traffic within 2-3 weeks, so maybe that's the best answer for a beautiful new lawn for your graduation party.
