Is it smart to send scores?

edited October 2011 in AP Tests Preparation
I am applying for admission to Harvard, and I only took two AP tests in high school, recieving a 4 on both of them. I already submitted my app, and forgot to put down these scores, so if I did anything it would be to call and have them send the score reports to Harvard now.

But 4's are not that impressive...and I do not plan on trying to use these for credit. Will this help me at all in the admissions process? If you have any advice, that would be great, because I will have to dig up the AP number from somewhere(I really have no idea where I am going to find these...?) to send them in ASAP.

    AP scores are self-reported. You do not need your AP number, you just list your scores on the application. I don't think it really makes a difference, since you only have two 4's; you can probably just leave it. Call if you really want to, it won't hurt you.
