Will AP Score verification affect my enrollment?
I recently applied to a few schools for transfer and on the application it asked "Do you wish to report any AP Scores?" I've taken 5 AP Exams, and I didn't do as well as most applicants probably do. I passed all except 1, but I only liked my scores for two of them so those are the ones I reported. If by chance I get accepted and have to send my scores for verification, will they nullify my acceptance after seeing my other 3 AP scores?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
I don't believe they'll nullify an acceptance over that.
In general, there's nothing wrong with reporting AP Scores, even failing ones. Colleges appreciate the effort and would have improved your odds. Now that you're in, even the failure shouldn't change much since it's (at worst) a neutral.
As long as you didn't *falsely* report any scores—i.e. the ones you did report were correct—you shouldn't have a problem. Reporting AP scores is optional basically everywhere and applicants are free to omit scores they don't want to report (it's even in the wording of the question you quoted here). AP scores really don't play much of a role in the admissions process anyway; they're mainly useful for placing out of courses once you're at college.
