Adding languages to collegevine?

This is more aimed at the experts who run this website. It would be a nice feature to add the number of languages you speak to the chancing engine, and similar to the Common App. You should be able to check off whether you can speak, read, write, spoken at home, and if it's your first language. This is just a suggestion. It would be a nice addition to this chancing engine.

I would like that feature too. Let's upvote this to get some attention from the admins!

Hi there! Thanks for using CollegeVine and for giving us this feedback. We're constantly looking to improve our tools.

That said, the reason this feature doesn't exist in our chancing engine is because speaking many languages doesn't really impact your chances. The Common App asks this question for diversity purposes. As @DebaterMAX said, there may be some outliers (like speaking 7 languages fluently), but speaking 2-3 foreign languages is actually quite common.

Hope this helps, and let us know if you have more questions!

You should email support@collegevine.com. Also are you asking for language support or asking for your language speaking abilities to impact your chances? If it’s the later it’s highly unlikely it will impact your chances. Of course outliers exist.
