Is this a + factor when applying to US Bschools?
I know someone who got into Harvard (undergrad)
Harvard admitted her because she could speak 8 languages.
I can speak a few.
Tagalog - native
English - native
Chinese-Fookienese - native (language at home)
Spanish - intermediate
Chinese-Mandarin - intermediate (13 years in school)
I promise you Harvard didn't admit her just because she spoke 8 languages. Thats like my saying I got into the GSB because I had a XXX GMAT. It's not that cut and dry - don't fool yourself into thinking it is or you wil llikely be dissapointed....
That said, multilingual is definetly a nice thing to have for your apps.
