Does UW use AP scores for admissions?

Hi, I applied as a transfer student for Fall 2012, and I sent in my AP scores from high school, but DID NOT send in my AP scores (I scored successfully in all of my tests, including 2 self-studies where I got 4's and 5's).

I applied at the end of January, and it said I will receive my decision by the end of March. Here is what I am thinking right now...

- Send the scores in soon, hopefully admissions will get them and will help my chances

- Wait until I get my decision, and if it's a rejection, then I can use my AP scores to help my case for an appeal

Anyone know about this? What should I do?

    Sorry, I don't understand this part of your post:

    "I sent in my AP scores from high school, but DID NOT send in my AP scores"

    I would recommend you call Admissions and ask your question. Nobody on CC can speak with authority on your question.

    With that caveat, it's my understanding that once you have a college record, High School, AP tests, etc. are not determining factors.

    As above. College trumps anything from HS. AP scores can give you credits after you are at UW. As always- check with the school and never consider CC the official answer.
