How Important are AP Scores?

<p>I just got my AP scores (4 Lang & Comp, 4 Chem, 5 APUSH). I'm currently a rising senior, and I am looking to apply to many top schools (minus Harvard, Yale, MIT, Stanford) and I was just wondering how much these scores will hurt me.</p>

<p>They probably won't, 4's are perfectly acceptable. Also, if you don't happen to send them, that's fine too, they're mostly used for placement, not admissions.</p>

<p>they wouldnt look down on 4s even tho they r top schools? and i would have to send them, if i didnt that would make them look worse</p>

<p>4's are still relatively decent. it shouldn't hurt. won't help either, but shouldn't hurt</p>

<p>as long as it wont hurt, i mean im a major reach for top schools it would be only luck if i were to get into a top school (unhooked white male from avg public school in NJ with 2300 SAT)</p>

<p>bump 10 char</p>

<p>AP scores don't impact admissions decisions.</p>

<p>not at all? so if i were to get three 2s it wouldnt matter at all</p>

<p>Anything under a 4 and maybe one 3 shouldn't make a difference. And I know someone who sent none of her AP scores because she got a 1 on a Calc AB exam but got into Stanford. Chill bro.</p>

<p>okay thanks..and im relaxed i was just curious</p>
