The gap between a student and his or her degree is a very big one. Not only do people want to prove themselves, but they want to be successful in the eyes of those who are watching them. The gap is usually about two years, and the only way you can get back into a class if you want to is to transfer—the biggest hurdle in that regard is applying.
If you’re looking for the perfect excuse to apply to college, this is it. It’s a huge obstacle that you have to overcome and if you can take the time to do something about it, you can do something about it too. The application process is lengthy and rigorous. First, you might have to answer a bunch of survey questions and then fill out a bunch of application forms. Then you might have to put in some of your personal information and answer a bunch of questions.
The process of applying to college, I would say, is the biggest hurdle that most people face. The application process is tedious and can take up to two years of your life to complete. The process itself is not as glamorous as most people make it out to be. The application process is quite long because you have to write essays, take tests, and most importantly, do a bunch of research before you even start studying.
For me, that takes all the fun out of applying to college and is why I’m not going to college with my wife of two years. But the thing is, when I applied to my college for a degree in engineering in 2007, I had a full time job that paid the bills. I was not going to be applying to a college in three months. I had to get my application in on time.
That is a lot of work, if you ask me. The good news is that some universities do offer a “gap year” program that can grant a student a “gap year” of a minimum of 12 months of college without paying tuition. That means no classes in the first time period, but you still have a lot of other free time to study.
For me, the gap year was a great way to start off a new chapter and to get me back into the rhythm of school. While I was still in high school, I spent a semester abroad (I was in Denmark) and it was fantastic. The best part was that I was spending most of my time studying and learning about the world. So, I took my gap year into my senior year of college.
I chose to go abroad to Denmark from last year because it was the first year I was really ready to move on to the next phase in my life. I had just finished my junior year of high school in the Fall of my senior year of college and had no idea what I was going to do next. There was no clear path for me to follow.
If I had known that the next phase would be this far-flung adventure abroad, I probably would not have been taking this gap year. The most important thing about learning the world and living in such a different culture is that you have to learn everything yourself. That’s not the case in most other countries where you are given a pre-determined path to follow.
It’s not that the gap year was useless, but it was a pretty rough one. The best part of my gap year is that I got to travel to Europe for the first time since college and saw the new buildings and architecture that this city has to offer.
