Sending AP scores to Barnard

Okay, so I've already been accepted to Barnard and am attending this fall. I was just wondering whether or not I should send my AP scores to Barnard. I'm taking four APs this year, and I'm not sure I'll do so well on them. I don't want Barnard to see that I got a 3 or possibly even a 2 on an AP. Will that score hurt me? However, it seems like it makes economic sense to just send them to Barnard since doing so would be free (I'm going to write down Barnard on the test answer sheet so my AP scores will be sent to Barnard free of charge).
Is there anything to lose? I have to decide soon since my first AP is only a couple days away.

    There's nothing to lose. I believe that the only one who will be looking at the scores would be the registrar's office to determine what credits you are entitled to. They probably get the scores transmitted electronically & computer software which automatically pulls up the scores that are good enough to get credit and ignores the others. (If there isn't, there ought to be)

    When my d. started at Barnard 5 years ago, the process was pretty much automatic. That the AP credit just showed up on eBear one day in August, even before my d. arrived on campus.
