Self-Studying APs....impact on admissions??

<p>Does self-studying APs have an impact on whether or not you admitted? Specifically to Ivy League schools.</p>

<p>Nobody? Really any thoughts...</p>

<p>Read this thread: <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/college-admissions/573874-ap-test-scores-admission-faq.html?highlight=impact+scores+college+admissions%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/college-admissions/573874-ap-test-scores-admission-faq.html?highlight=impact+scores+college+admissions&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>^ I read the first couple pages of the thread but it all seems to be about whether or not you should report your low scores..no mention of s-s</p>

<p>I did read the MIT articles though...very interesting! Anthony's story was simply incredible</p>

<p>Bump 10char</p>

<p>I hope it does!! I have already s-s quite a few and don't want it to be ignored. Does anyone know for sure whether or not it does???</p>

<p>it depends what school. an ivy isn't going to be as impressed as a state school.</p>

<p>^ Def speaking about Ivies.</p>

<p>I don't think it will ultimately determine the college's decision; while AP exams can be taken into consideration during the admissions process, they are mostly just used for placement</p>
