There's been a burning question in my head. UW-Madison and a few other colleges I'm interested in require three years of a foreign language to be admitted. However, I have heard many stories about people who only have two, one, or even none who got into the college.
I, myself, only took two years of Spanish. I didn't take Spanish 3 this year, but I signed up for it the upcoming year (senior year). Honestly, I really don't want to take another year of Spanish considering I had the break year in between. Plus, I speak two dialects of Chinese.
So, bottom line: Will UW-Madison or any college that requires three years of a foreign language turn me away just because I didn't take that one extra year of language?
Thank you very much. This is a question that's been bothering me for a while, so I hope I can get an answer .
