Question: I am a sophomore in high school and am confused about summer plans. I enjoy the classics and am considering taking a Latin III summer class, which will give me five years of Latin and three of Greek in high school. I would rather take this class than do something else just for the sake of college admissions. How will admission committees view this?
Without a doubt you should pursue your passion for Latin this summer. We never recommend that a student make choices based only on how they may look on college applications, butâ€" inter nosâ€"we will point out that some selections are wiser than others in that respect.
