    Hey everyone,

    I just got my SAT Physics test results back today and I did well on it. I accidentally sent only the SAT Physics test score to West Point without thinking about it. I know that service academies don't really check your subject tests, so I'm wondering if this will this have any negative effect on my application. They already have my SAT I scores. Please let me know, thanks!

    Oooopsy...

    It shouldn't have any negative effect. More than likely they'll put it in your file as a geewizz thing

    My admissions counselor at USMA basically said

    think of your application as a bulletin board - put up everything you want to and we'll take what we need

    while I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have appreciated "everything" the idea is basically that nothing you can add will detract from your application.

    Applying to a service academy is partly about following directions and attention to detail. While I don't think sending this one score has any major negative impact, I would in the future only send them the things they specify in the application forms. Sending in large amounts of data not requested could eventually reflect poorly on your application. You should not depend on the admissions department to weed through large amounts of extra/unrequested information.

    Pretty sure that the subject test results won't end up in admissions, but the dean's office, just like AP results. If you get in, the dean's office uses them along with your tests during Beast to determine placement. If you want admissions to see the results, I suggest you send a copy in an email.
