What's the advantage to not submitting your scores?

Honestly, it depends on the score. Even it's test optional, the people submitting those test scores are gonna have an advantage. The adcoms may not admit but im sure it is a factor. I recommend still sending in scores or taking the test again if you're not satisfied. Good luck.

If the school is test optional you need to check and see if they still use the tests to judge whether you should get in.  If the test is bad submitting it obviously isn't a great idea but if you have a decent score submit it because it could be the difference between you and another student

If your scores are decent, I don't see a reason why you wouldn't submit them.
