Overall Comments: Overall, this was good enough to make me think you might look into post-grad work that would allow you to use your presentation skills. The mix of verbal & visual worked well, and though I was worried about your vocal performance, as a non-native speaker, you handled that fine. The work had an obvious logical flaw, though, in how little you discussed the case in Florida — & by extension, how little you say about the disadvantages. That slide is your most barren. At that point, you never so much as mentioned “social skills,” & those are a crucial element of young adult life, in college. Another problem I had was how, while you promoted the idea of a “gap year,” you didn’t say much about it. Notice that the slide, for that, has what may be a passport stamp — but then again, where might a child of 14 go? The Response Team did well & you handled their questions informatively. B+
