Is an AP exam score of 4 competitive enough for Ivy League admissions?

Hey guys! I received a 4 on one of my AP exams, and I'm not sure if that's considered strong enough for Ivy League admissions. I got 5's on my other exams, so I just have this one 4. Should I worry about this lower score affecting my chances at top-tier schools? Thanks for any insight!

Hi there! Congrats on your AP exam scores! A score of 4 is still considered good, and it's great to hear that you've also got 5's on your other exams. Colleges understand that not everyone can get a perfect score on every exam, and a single 4 won't significantly impact your chances at Ivy League schools. It's important to focus on your overall application, such as your grades, extracurricular activities, personal statement, and letters of recommendation. A strong overall application will definitely help offset any concerns about one score. Good luck with your applications!
