Help! I only have two years of language
I'm a high school junior and I've taken two years and half (5 semesters) of foreign language (Spanish), but that's all I'm going to take before I apply to college this fall. I'm fluent in English, Portuguese, and Spanish and didn't take another semester of the class because it was online through FLVS and I simply couldn't keep up with it and AP exams and my 7 other classes and SAT prep. Will not having 3 full years of language hurt my chances at all in college admissions as most schools (especially ivies or more elite private schools) recommend/require 3 years? One thing that helps my case is that I'm one year ahead in Spanish, I took Spanish 2 my freshman year, Spanish 3 my sophomore year, and one semester of Spanish 4 honors my junior year and I'm fluent in Portuguese, English, and Spanish (Portuguese first language, English second, and Spanish learned from family and maintained in class).30 replies
