Accepted ED: Should I send my IB scores to Penn??

BokysEditsBokysEdits 26 replies2 postsRegistered User Junior Member
I feel like I did bad on two tests, which I fear might reflect badly on me. Should I still send all of my IB scores to Penn, would they care or can you get rescinded for not sending them or doing poorly??

    If you won’t get credit or advanced placement at Penn for the scores, no need to send.

    Thanks for the reply. Are you sure they wont be suspicious of something going wrong if they don't receive my scores?

    Would you consider I send the scores from now or wait until July 5th and decide then, once I can see what I got? It would only be like a 3 day difference in when they receive my scores

    It really does not matter. IB/AP scores are processed by a clerical to ascertain credit. You will probably never meet him/her. If on the off chance you bump into him/her on Locust Walk, s/he will not think, "Oh, that's the kid that got a 2 on IB Math HL."

    Your acceptance will not be rescinded, so there are better things to spend your time contemplating. Good luck.

    The only reason to send Penn your scores would be if you want to use them to get credit awarded to place out of certain classes. So look at Penn's criteria and wait until you get your scores to see if you want to (or can) use them to get credit for certain classes.

    Thank you so much, this is helpful. Also, earlier in the thread when you said "Positive" you were affirming that they would NOT be suspicious correct?

    Sorry to ask again, it is just that people spread rumors about admissions officers going after you to get your scores or ask for your IB diploma etc. Now that I think about it, a new concern of mine is what if I failed an HL or something and did not get my diploma. I know I am just being paranoid (like I studied really hard and know I HAVE to have earned my diploma) but still.

    Correct.

    You didn't fail.Don't worry about things that probably will not happen..
