Off-to-College Shopping

Many retailers, such as Amazon (off to college or back to school; purchases made through these links will generate a commission that helps support the free content on this website!), Costco (dorm room essentials or back to school), Target (college deals or back to school deals), and Walmart (back to college or back to school), will put school supplies and dorm room essentials (bedding and flimsy furniture) on sale between July and August. Remember to get Twin XL sheets, a shower caddy, and storage bins if you will be living in the dorms!

If I got a score of “3” on a couple of AP exams. Should I report it to the school or should I not report it because its too low of a score?
Thank you.

Generally passing AP exam scores (3 or better) are “brownie points” and should be reported.
