Hi everyone, I'm setting myself up to get into an elite/ivy league college. I need some advice on whether or not I should take 4 years of Spanish. I'm already fluent in one other language that isn't offered at my school, I recently took the AP test and am expecting to get at least a 3-5 on it. I'm already taken 2 years of Spanish and was previously thinking about going on to AP span lang., but I would much rather take other APs I'm interested in, such as human geography and such. The thing is I'm taking span 3 over the summer to room up my schedule, and my school says there is only a tiny chance i'll be able to jump to AP after, in which case I'll want to take it. If I am unable to do so, should I continue with Spanish four? Will it make much difference whether I take that class or take another class that I'm more interested in, keeping in mind I have another language already? I should also mention that I'm already taking all the sophomore ap classes the school lets me, so should I take Spanish 4 or take a different non ap course? I know that schools highly recommend 4 years of one language.
what do you think?
What are the pros and cons of both options?
why do elite colleges want to see 4 years of a single language? Is it to see that the student is proficient in two languages or more to see that I can stick to something all the way through?
If I'm proficient in three languages how much better would that make me look? or should I clear space for other ap courses I'm interested in? Will that hurt my chances?
