    Hi all:
    Most schools requires a year of english for admission. I am currently a sophmore now and have taken tons of courses that meets composition requirements, like Comparative Literature, Composition, and Cinema. However, none of these courses are titled "english", do the courses counts toward the requirement or should I take courses that is titled "english #"?

    I really need you guys to help me out on this one, registration starts tommorrow! :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Chucky,

    By what you have taken already, I believe that you're fine. I just looked at two dental schools, Nova and U of MN, for their application/admissions "English" requirements, both COMPOSITION and LITERATURE courses are considered "English" courses! You are all set for application as far as your "English" requirements. If you have further questions about this, I would suggest you to look at specific dental school websites or call them directly prior your registration tomorrow.

    Hope this clears some doubts.

    :cool:

    Hello,
    I would call the school you are interested in since they all have different specifications. Ask them if they count towards your english credits. They will gladly answer your question. Not only this, but you also work on your networking with the school. The more they hear from you, the more they get to know you, the more it helps you. In my case I took english comp., tech writing, and speech communication. A cool tricl that also works is taking the ???? oooppss I forgot the name of the exam, but basically you take a test and the credits get tranfered to your school, which counts towards dent. schools. I will try to find out the name of the test. They are pretty easy..I took 12 credits of spanish like that in a single afternoon and not a single school questioned me about it...not even the Puerto Rican school which requires you to take spanish (12 credits) Hope this helps

    is a seminar an english course? I know for UOP, that is cosidered a whole year of English, but other schools? For undergrad at UOP, they made us take a years worth of Seminar instead of having the standard english classes as a general Ed course....now I Don't know if this seminar is fulfilling the requirements for other schools.
    Does anyone know?
    thanks`
