23 How to Become a World Citizen, Before Going to College.
Four jobs. Seventy hours a week. All summer. That has been Erin Sullivan's schedule since graduating from high school. (Dinner was often in her car, driving from lifeguarding to baby-sitting.) But it has been worth it, said Ms. Sullivan, 18, of Lawrenceville, N.J., who was to leave this weekend for Latin America on a mostly self-financed "gap year" of volunteering, home stays and Spanish lessons before attending college in fall "I want a better idea what I'm going for before I go," said Ms. Sullivan, who is deferring admission to American University. An increasing number of middle¬class students, like Ms. Sullivan, are opting to take a gap year before or during college. Many students of various financial backgrounds now pay all or part of the cost. And as college costs soar, more families see the moves as good investments, because their children often return more focused. It makes economic sense for students to explore their interests before college, advocates of gap years say; freshmen who do so are less likely to party too much, fail courses or change majors repeatedly - all of which can result in more time needed to graduate, and more expense. And gap years can help build resumes: students who are interested in medicine have more contact with patients volunteering in clinics in Costa Rica, for example, than they can in the United States. And, on various foreign trips, they can attain a level of fluency in a new language. Many students learn valuable life skills by earning and handling money during gap years, said Gail Reardon, founding director of Taking Off, a Boston consulting firm that also helps students plan gap years.
