After four years in high school or as an undergraduate in college, you might be feeling a little burned out and not sure what you want to do next. A growing trend among students who feel this way is to take a “gap year” to study abroad. That means, instead of going back to school in the fall, you would take the year off to travel or do community service in a country outside the United States.
While some argue that taking a gap year is a “waste of time,” other students are showing that a gap year can actually be a very valuable experience.
