AP Scores not pertaining to future major

PnumaticPnumatic 1 replies2 threads New Member
Do you guys think I should give my AP computer science score in the admissions process, even though I am going to major in biology? I received a 3 on this test, but all of my other scores are 5s with a couple of 4s. I figured I shouldn't send it because it was a 3 and on a topic I am obviously not going to pursue it wouldn't look bad if I do send it. Am i right in thinking this? Other threads have said that it doesn't look too bad, but it was in my sophomore year, and the only computer science class I took.

    There would not be any harm in doing so. One 3 in your AP scores won't kill your chances for admissions. Plus, if you were to apply as an intended biology major, it would not really affect you.

    @Pnumatic Do you wish to enter a 3 to be evaluated by admission officers at selective universities? Any score you enter is now part of evaluation. Why report a 3? It will not help your application and will diminish it. Report your best scores. Simply leave off the 3.
