AMC scores

Will listing mediocre AMC/AIME scores help/hurt a Caltech application?

E.g. 9th grade (93 AMC 12, 2 AIME), 10th grade (93 AMC 12, 3 AIME), 11th grade (99 AMC 12)

I'm a female ORM, by the way, if it makes any difference.

    Generally, successful Caltech admits can qualify for the AIME, which I guess you did since they lowered the standard (used to be 100.) Those are ok scores--it won't hurt you.

    Ethnicity and gender are not considered in admissions.

    won't hurt it. i got in with a score below the AIME cutoff.

    i think if u qualified for aime the scores definitely will help even if u think they are low. Even listing u participated in AMC should help

    another question: would this year's scores help at all, or would it be too late? if they could help, how would one going about sending them?
