I am very curious as to how many applicants to SLO have the recommended 10 semesters of English. I was stunned when I saw that recommendation on the SLO website. I realize there are creative ways to get the 9th and 10th semesters, but I can't imagine too many applicants really have it. We have explored ways for my son (currently a HS junior) to take a college English course this summer, but it would be tough. The summer sessions at our local CC's last nearly the entire summer. That would eliminate any sort of family vacation, or time off for a very busy kid. He will max out the rest of the course rigor points, so I am hoping that the lack of the 5th year of English won't keep him out.
