Our rising senior recently toured a local university. It has the exact major she wants and since it's local, it's in our price range. Also, she has some learning disabilities and it is listed as being in the top 20 in the country for services. Admission into the fine art program is separate but the student must then be admitted into the University and must pass the academic requirements which include 2 years of language. When we originally signed off on bypassing languages in HS, the team assured us it probably would not interfere with her college admission. Our question is, should she say something on her application or will the transcript speak for itself? Thanks in advance.9 replies
