Top Two or All Three?

I'm going to be taking 3 subject tests this October (this is my senior year). I plan to have all my applications squared and sent away well before I get the results back, so I assume I'm going to have to do an official report to my colleges since everything will already be sent. For the colleges that require only two tests instead of three, will they disregard the lowest score when the score report comes in?

    I imagine that if you submit all 3, then the college admissions officers will see all 3. This could definitely affect their holistic assessment of your application. However, most colleges claim that they try to see "the best possible picture" of the applicant. So it is possible that they disregard the lowest score. Honestly, no one knows for sure what goes on for each specific college.
