Gap Year Help

A client called for a consultation, asking me about scholarships, and taking a "Gap Year" before college.  After we spoke, I emailed her some additional resources.  Maybe it will be a perfect fit for your family too!  Here is the reading and resource materials for you to enjoy.

Scholarship Help:

"How to Get the BIG Scholarships" on DVD



Other Scholarship Help:

How to Go to College For Almost Free



CLEP Study

Official Study Guide


Subject Study Guides look like this.



Read About Gap Year:

Gap year definition:  Taking a year off is becoming more common, viewed more favorably, seen as benefit by some.  Students are still considered freshman unless they take a college course of any kind.  Some colleges defer enrollment, which means the student is accepted and then waits a year to actually attend.  Other schools do not defer enrollment.



Online articles:

International Herald Tribune


"Princeton's president, Shirley Tilghman, said in an interview that such a program would give students a more international perspective, add to their maturity and give them a break from academic pressures."


Washington Post

Must do Christmas shopping yet before i can do Christmas wrapping.... I've been reading your blogs recently - they're really good, informative, interesting, and funny.(I really enjoyed your comment the other day about the snow only being able to hold 40 lbs., because your 43 lb. dog would crash in every few steps - our dog has the same issue when we get the hard, crunchy snow. Thanks for all the time and effort you pour in to your work, Lee!
