hi! i'll be attending gsp in the upcoming fall as a freshman.
i have a slight problem. i originally applied to CAS for east asian studies/chinese language. obviously that doesn't really matter now that i'm in GSP, but my question is: can i take a foreign language my freshman year? i've been studying chinese with a private tutor for the past 3 years, but i was told that freshman can't take a foreign language unless they have taken it for 3 years in high school. chinese isn't offered in my high school! it's going to really suck [for lack of a better term] if i have to skip a year of chinese, because i'll basically be starting from scratch.
on the other hand, i was also contemplating majoring in spanish. i have taken spanish for all 4 years of high school, but i heard freshman can't really take spanish either because it's so popular and the juniors and seniors want to take it to complete their requirement. is this true? even if i take the placement test and do really well on it??
i'm sorry if i sound pissed off or crazy, i'm just really upset about the possibility of not being able to take either chinese or spanish my freshman year. any insight/experiences would be much obliged!
