This is an article about How a Gap Year Prepares Students for College. It contains the results of our different choices in Gap Year, and also hints at many possible consequences in the future. We can learn a lot from it.

A gap year, also known as a sabbatical year, is typically a year-long break before or after college/university during which students engage in various educational and developmental activities, such as travel or some type of regular work. Here is a website that has more information: https://www.gapyearassociation.org/

I think gap year is a good chance due to the COVID-19 situation in recent years, especially the situation is really bad outside China. A lot of students who get an offer choose to defer to the next year and they can have the chance to do more internship to fulfill their job experience.

It’s really important to form a plan of what you will do for the year, no matter what your gap year idea is, and you need to start planning well in advance. Some voluntary work schemes are popular and have strict deadlines, and you need to consider when you need the money to pay for airfares or visas.
There are loads of ideas you could consider – some might fill an entire year, others a few weeks or months. You could also combine more than one idea.
There is a wide range of gap year and volunteering schemes available. If you’re using an agency or scheme, check out how long they have been running, if they are financially sound, and are members of a reputable organisation, such as ABTA or Year Out Group, where they agree to follow a code of conduct.
有各种各样的间隔年和志愿服务计划。如果您使用的是代理机构或计划，请检查它们已经运行了多长时间，财务状况是否良好以及是否是信誉良好的组织（例如ABTA或Year Out Group）的成员，在这些组织中他们同意遵守行为准则。
The link is about ideas and things you need to think about in your gap year.

In my opinion, a gap year does have some benefits. Gap year consultants, students, parents, and even college admissions officials all claim that gap year experiences make these students more mature, confident, and career-driven. Goodman says, “Taking a gap year can clarify the intellectual, academic, and professional objectives of a student.” While there has been no formal research done by the U.S. government on the benefits of a gap year experience, Rae Nelson and Karl Haigler, authors of The Gap Year Advantage, surveyed 280 gap year alumni from November 2007 through February 2008 about how the experience molded their lives. Sixty percent said their gap year affected their majors and careers by either confirming an early direction or channeling them to a new path. Brown, of Binghamton University, says, “The students do very well when they enroll at Binghamton—many become leaders in cultural clubs and organizations and bring an increased maturity and cultural savvy to the campus.”
However, when you are deciding whether to take a gap year or not, you should first consider if these benefits can really help to improve yourself because it is not a small decision.
