Will taking Spanish 3 improve my chances?

<p>Will taking Spanish 3 improve my chances of getting into the top colleges like:CMU</p>

<p>University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
harvey mudd
ga tech
virginia tech

<p>i took spanish 1 in middle school, so it shows up on my transcript (but no grade)
i took spanish 2 in high school and got an A</p>

<p>also if i don't take spanish 3, will colleges think i took 2 spanish classes or just 1?</p>

<p>my gpa is a 3.69 unweighted with electives taken into consideration</p>

<p>thank you very much!</p>

<p>It's pretty obvious, why would taking another class hurt your application? And your school must go even further than just Spanish 3.</p>

<p>well, i am applying to college this year and spanish 3 is only offered second semester. So should I take spanish 3 or should I take some other class?
