3+ years of a language for admit to women's college?

I don't know if they still have this policy, but is 3+ years of a language still a requirement to apply to women's colleges such as the Seven Sisters (Mt Holyoke, Smith Bryn Mawr) ? I've only taken 2 years of a language as I double-loaded myself with science both my Junior and Senior year. I was wondering if I should drop my Physics class to meet "recommendations"

    I only had two years of Spanish, and I go to Smith. I can't really speak for the other women's colleges, but Smith seems to really like students in the sciences, and they definitely want to see that applicants have followed their passions. If physics is your passion, you're probably better off sticking with it.
