OK, so, my Japanese placement test went extremely well; I was worried about being allowed into JPN301 in the Fall, and the person who did my interview not only approved me for that, she suggested that it might be too easy and offered me the option of jumping right into 400 level courses.
That would, however, be the very definition of hubris, so I’m going with 301 in Fall and am just amazingly relieved that I’m not being asked to take some review courses during summer term.
I’m going to chalk this up to an extreme case of luck, by the way; she kept asking me questions that were right out of exercises we’d drilled over and over again in my 100 and 200 level courses. If she’d gone much off-script, I don’t think I would have recieved such a rosy evaluation. 🙂
