How important are AP scores in admissions? I already have a 5 from last year. This year, I'm pretty confident about 2 of the tests (one 5 and one 3/4... i think). I'm REALLY not confident about my AP Language test, though. How badly would a 2 hurt? I got a 35 on my ACT reading and am getting a letter of rec from my AP lang teacher who can comment on my writing (which is actually pretty good... I freaked out @ the test).
