Minding the Gap

June 20th, 2016

Taking a gap year, although still relatively rare in the US, is a more frequent topic of conversation since Malia Obama announced her plans to defer college enrollment. Some Shrop Ed students have asked us about the possibility, too, and we feel that as long as a student has a plan in mind for structuring the year productively, the gap year can be enormously beneficial. Deans of admission will want to know your plans when reviewing a request for enrollment deferral so if you’re considering the option, you’ll want to act fairly quickly to put all of the pieces together.

We invite you to read this article on the American Gap Association’s website, and let us know if we can help.
