Sending SAT scores to Yale?

edited October 2010 in College Admissions
The Yale Admissions page says I have to send all my SAT and SAT II scores to Yale. Does this mean all of the SAT IIs, as in every single one I've ever taken? Or does it mean if I took, say US History SAT II twice, all two of the scores must be reported?

    All the scores.

    So if I took US History, Math II, and Bio I have to report all three, even if I don't want to report the Bio?

    Yes, you do.

    This thread helped my out a lot. Thanks!
    If you guys could answer my question, I'd be very appreciative:

    I already wrote my highest scores and test dates all on the common app. I've already submitted my common app, as I'm applying ED (deadline: November 1st). I wanted to send a collegeboard official score report just in case.
    Do you think I have to get rush shipping or normal shipping?

    If you could reply ASAP, that'd be great as this is very urgent!
    Thanks in advance!

    silverturtle, you're back

    Was I gone? :)

    (Thanks again for the essay feedback; it definitely boosted my confidence. I sent in my app a few minutes ago.)

    The self-reporting is meant merely to supplement the official score report, which is a requirement. I recommend rush shipping the scores immediately.

    As depressing as that news is, thanks Silver Turtle :D

    Their strict anti-Score Choice policy notwithstanding, I imagine that they will give little to no weight to any scores that one would clearly not want to send if Score Choice were an option.

    Thank you for the advice, even if I'm really disappointed that I now have to pay an extra $30 for rush shipping.

    @silverturtle: Well, I haven't seen your posts in a while:P. I'm not sure how much you should rely on my comments though----I loved it, but it's hard to guarantee that that's what an admissions officer would think as well.

    @OP: opinions on CC seem to vary as whether rushing scores is necessary. I would pay for the rush score just to be safe. It's your once-of-a-lifetime ED application after all.

    *confidence crushed* Oh boy, I didn't expect the post-submission regret to set in this fast! :)

    ...post submission regret for me or for you? Well, I still stand by everything I said about your essay, you know. If you mean for you, then you'll have another month to get used the feeling:P.

    Or not.
