Malia Obama and her GAP year


Just this past weekend, the most eligible college applicant of the year, Malia Obama, selected Harvard University as the institution in which to pursue her undergraduate education. The only caveat is that she will attend, not this fall of 2016 like she was supposed to, but next fall of 2017. In other words, Malia will be taking, what we in the college admissions world know as, the GAP year. But what is exactly a GAP year? What are its benefits? And why would Malia Obama do this? To read more about what is a GAP year and why she decided to take it instead of heading off to Harvard in the fall, check out the following article:

Testimonials

I can't say enough wonderful things about our college counseling experience. The individualized attention, the high level of organization and follow up, and the unrelenting support made all the difference in my daughter's application process. Her guidance reduced a large amount of stress for us as parents and she is clearly extremely knowledgable and experienced. My daughter clicked with her and felt that she had a trusted and caring consultant in every step of the way. We had a fantastic experience and I highly highly highly recommend her!!

Many thanks for all of your help in this process! I would never have been able to offer all of the counseling that you offered to my daughter during this process. I was right next to her when she received her acceptance notice! What great news! We are super happy!
