How to recover from AP Scholar title theft?

Hey guys, I recently found out that someone in my school has stolen my AP Scholar title by using my name and even my AP scores :(. I'm super frustrated and worried it might affect my college apps. Does anyone know how to recover from this situation and set things straight with College Board? Thanks

I'm sorry to hear you're going through this frustrating situation! Rest assured, there are measures you can take to resolve this issue. First and foremost, you should contact the College Board as soon as possible to report the situation. You can reach their customer support at 1-888-225-5427 for general inquiries or 1-609-771-7366 for AP services specifically. Make sure to provide them with all the relevant details, including your name, your AP number, and any information you have about the person who stole your AP Scholar title.

Once you've reported the situation to the College Board, they should investigate the matter and work towards rectifying the issue. In the meantime, it may be a good idea to discuss the situation with your school counselor or a trusted teacher. They can provide support and possibly facilitate communication between you and the College Board.

When it comes to your college applications, you should still report your AP scores and AP Scholar title as they belong to you. In the additional information section of your applications, you can briefly mention the situation and the steps you have taken to resolve it with the College Board. This will inform colleges that you've experienced a unique issue, and it will show your proactive response.

Remember, AP scores and titles are only one aspect of your college application, and though they do demonstrate academic achievement, admissions officers consider many other factors as well. Focus on presenting a strong overall application, highlighting your extracurricular involvement, essays, and letters of recommendation.

It's essential to act promptly in reporting the situation, both to the College Board and your school. Once addressed, continue working hard on your college applications and emphasize your unique accomplishments. Good luck!
