As some of you know, I'm currently a senior in high school, and also fifteen. Up until about a week ago, I'd been pretty set on just going to college at sixteen, but a couple of my friends have mentioned the possibility of taking a gap year, and it got me thinking about taking one. I'm not exactly sure what I would do (Americorps? Get a job? Study on my own? Travel?), but the prospect has an undeniable attraction.
If any of you took gap years, what were they like? What did you do? Were they valuable experiences? If you could make the decision again, would you do the same thing?
