Yeah, I wouldn't worry about it too much either; but do be careful about how you say it when you do eventually reveal it. You don't want to come off as being a really cocky jerk :P

Also... yeah, usually ear training classes, especially if they are classical-based and you come from a classical background, will be completely boring. However, I am definitely of the opinion that the classes are worth going to. I had one ear training teacher in one semester who, when he found out I had AP, transposed all the sight-singing exercises for the class. For the kids who didn't have AP, it made no difference in the level of difficulty, but for me, it gave me a huge challenge that I was forced to overcome - and now my sight-transposing is a million times better! I also got a lot better at hearing jazz chord tensions (since this was primarily a jazz school). They were something I knew, but the practice in ear training got me better at identifying them more quickly. So... yeah I'm not your mom, but go to class :)
