Re: [phillywriter] foreign language requirement

  
Phillywriter,

Well said. I think what bothers me is what this says about the faculty and the people running the Michigan program. I have no desire to apply to Michigan for a number of reasons, but if they did accept me, and then asked me to read a list of books or do a stupid 10th grade exercise like this it would tell me a lot about what they thought about me as a student, namely, that despite my writing sample, GRE scores and grades, they still weren't convinced that I belonged there yet. They still didn't trust that I was well-read enough or skilled enough as a writer to be there.
