Should I send AP scores of 3?
Answered

I have a lot of 3s, one 5, one 4, and two 2s. Should I send my 3s to colleges that don’t accept them for credit? Will it hurt me? If I don’t send them, will they assume I got a 1 or 2? If the college accepts 3s for credit, should I send scores then? What if I didn’t send any of my scores for admission and just send them after I get in for credit?

if you know what you want to major in college, and some of those 3s were in classes pertaining to your major, i would recommend sending them in. a 3 is still a passing score and it shows colleges the true interest you have in your major. if you don’t know what you want to major in but your college accepts 3s as credit, send it in! it’ll save you time and money as you won’t have to take classes you would have had to otherwise.
