    I am a American citizen, and I'm fluent in Farsi. Will this increase my chances of being accepted?

    Being fluent in more than one language will increase your chances at any college.

    Are you a dual citizen with Iran as well?

    Then it shouldn't be a problem. if you were a dual citizen then you would have to give up your citizenship for security clearance, but if all you have is family there, you will undergo an interview about your family but other than that you will be fine.

    I wouldn't really know, but I think it probably would REALLY help. All of the SA's are big on diversity, and being fluent in a language, especially one used in the middle east would look fairly valuable.

    Armand1694, I don't know how many clear & good responses you will receive with this thread as you'd kind of gotten repetitive by posting very similar questions:

    Just worried that you might have forgotten. :redface: Wishing you the best of luck with your future. Go get 'em!
