Worth Including Non-5 AP Scores?

In my applications to HYPS/Ivies I've been planning to include my AP/IB scores.

Unfortunately I didn't really study for any of them.

US Hist - 4
Bio - 4
Eng Lang - 4
IB Spanish B SL - 5

As you can see, none of the scores were "great" but they certainly weren't "bad."

Would including them on the Tests portion of the Common App prove to be a disadvantage? Or would college reps not really care?

Thanks! :)

    A 4 is better than nothing.

    In a couple of presentations we attended we were told that the school wasn't really focussing on the AP score, but just the fact that the student selected the hardest available schedule. Check with the schools you're considering to see if scores matter prior to admission, or if they are used only afterwards.
    Ans to your questions: I would say yes, include them.
