Third year of foreign language worth the risk?
I am a rising sophomore and I just finished French 2 online. I am aware that most tier one schools that I want to get into recommend 3 years of foreign language. However, my high school does not offer french 3 and if i take it online my GPA is sure to drop as no one has ever gotten an A . In addition the nearest comunity college that offers it is 40 mins away and the French teachers are not good. I have a 4.0 right now so should I risk my GPA to look better for colleges? I am already taking 5 AP classes next year and am doing a fair amount of extracurriculars. (FYI I come from an extremely competitive high school where taking many APs and Dual enrollment classes are normal) I dont have much intrest in French anyway15 replies
