if you dont send it to them, how do they see it? i thought it wasnt required on the applications and stuff for them to see your ap scores, and one could always withold bad scores, how do they see your scores? or is it only after you've gotten in and you send it to them so they can give you your credit, are ap scores even really used from an admissions standpoint, i thought it was more sat II's for that, and that it was just important that you took all honors/ap courses and that you got good grades in them, and they never even see the scores

Some schools ask for them on the apps. If not, they shouldn't see them - unless your school puts them on your transcript.

Nothing requires that you direct an AP score to be sent to the college (at time of application or even after senior year courses) but the particular college may ask for them (in which case if you refuse, you can assume the college may assume the worst). Also, regardless of whether you send the scores, the college will know that you took or are taking an AP course as that shows up on your transcript (every transcript I have seen identified AP courses on it).

Only if you want them to. If you have good AP scores but not as good SAT II scores, APs can actually be of some benefit admissions-wise. I did badly on the math SAT II, but got a 4 in AP Calculus, so I showed my math abilities through my AP scores, not my SAT IIs.

My abilities are better shown in my sat II scores, e.g. 800 math IIc, but for the ap calc BC, I'm trying for a 4, but its very possible I'll end up with a 3, and that wont look good at all
