So colleges don't see your AP scores until AFTER you're admitted?

Or do you submit them all at once with your application?

    Some schools ask for your AP scores on their applications, but official reports aren't submitted until you decide to enroll.

    Most of D's applications did not ask for AP scores. She had to make a point to mention them, because they were all good. If you have a score that is NOT good, you could still list that you took the AP classes (and your grades in the actual class would show on your transcript, obviously). If you took an AP exam on your own and don't do well, IMO, you don't have to mention it at all in your apps. The official reports are only important in terms of getting credit or placement. Many of the private universities may consider AP scores only for placement; they don't actually give you additional credit hours.

    lol I just posted this a second ago on another thread. Yeah, unless you self-report them on the app they don't see it.
