Sending SAT II scores to a school that doesn't require it?

<p>Does it benefit you in any way?</p>

<p>I'm taking my subject tests in November, and I'll probably get my scores after ED deadlines are over. The schools I'm applying to ED don't require subject tests. So it would make no difference in my application if I don't have subject test grades by then? I realize many schools mean "send it in" when they say not required or recommended.</p>

<p>I'm applying to the ones that require the subject tests RD.</p>

<p>EDIT: I think I meant EA, not ED. The non-binding one. I get confused...</p>

<p>If a school does not require subject test scores, then I would suggest sending them in only if they can help you. For instance, if you scored above 700 (or for top schools, above 750) on any subject test, I think it could only benefit you to report it. However, keep in mind each score report is $9 to send, so use your judgment...if you think your application is strong in terms of standardized test scores, I see no reason to spend the extra money when it probably won't make a difference</p>
